… but reminders keep popping up. It’s NaNoWriMo time again, and I can feel the pressure building as I approach the starting gate. I’m not as ready this year as I have been in the past. My freezer is NOT full of pre-cooked meals, my apartment is NOT spic’n’span. My desk is NOT cleared of school work.
Three weeks ago I was thinking I’d skip it this year. That could have been the lazy me speaking, or the over-committed me, or the grouchy me, or the me who would much rather read than write.
And yet …
I’m registered, I’ve connected with some NaNo writing buddies, I’ve taped a plot outline to the wall over my desk, I’ve charted my daily word count, I’ve decided on a set of names for my characters, I’ve started warning my students and colleagues that next month I won’t be available for anything.
It looks like I’m in. For now. I’ll let you know how it goes.
PS: I want to know where Chef Janet got her great NaNo images.
