I’ve just signed up for @NaNoWriMo and I’m looking forward to starting the challenge on the 1st November.
What I’m aiming for is a full first draft of my first novel – though I’ll settle for almost a full draft, as long as I complete the 50,000 words! I’ve had a novel jumping around in my head now for the past three or four months, the characters are all there, the plot is almost all there and I even know where they live – I just need to get it out of my head and onto paper, so NaNoWriMo is the perfect tool to get me doing that. I embrace structure and deadlines – I feel adrift if there is no real need to do something. I’m as good as the next person at prevaricating so … roll on the 1st of November 🙂
