Nanowrimo starts tomorrow!

Tomorrow is the big day. I’ve been planning for November 1 for a couple of months now. So why is it that I find myself nervous? Last year I jumped in without too much thought to what I was getting into. This year, I’ve spent a great deal of energy learning more about plot and story structure. The story that I’d been planning to write for the last six months has been tabled until February. Pushed aside for something more marketable. Don’t get me wrong. I love the new idea, and the characters are coming together in my head, it’s just a newer idea. It hasn’t had the time to become so fully ingrained in me.

Enough of my rambling. I need to save all my spare words for tomorrow.

If you’re participating in Nanowrimo, add me as a writing buddy. “Christina” is my username. Very original, huh?

Happy November,

    Maybe the problem is the “tool” used to transcribe this year…do you realize the typewriter shown will only slow you down. That is, unless, you continually remember to back up.
