Thinking about nanowrimo again

Friday, August 30, 2013 Jason Weitzel 0 Comments

Is it crazy to be considering joining in on the Nanowrimo excitement again this year? I am thinking that the answer is yes, but I am also thinking that I will do it anyway. I really did enjoy it last year and it really did help me start a novel. The big question is, do I really have time...

Right now I am still editing what I started during the last competition, but I might actually be able to finish it before it is time to start. By the looks of it, it will be really close. What I am hoping, is that it will help push me to finish what I am working on now so I can start a new novel. I know for sure that I like writing a lot more than I like editing. That along might be enough to motivate me.

Since it starts in November, that gives me just about exactly 2 months to prep and finish The Cure. It doesn't seem like the craziest thing I have ever done. I mean, last November, I was working tons of overtime at my day job while also writing at the breakneck nano speed. And since nano, I have learned that I can push myself even harder so it doesn't really look like the huge obstacle that it once was.

I guess that means I should also start thinking about what I should write about. At the moment, I am bouncing around a few ideas in my head. I was hoping that one to take a step forward and demand to be written, but that hasn't happened yet. It would be like to me to wait until the last day before I decided. That is what I did last year too and it didn't seam to cause me too many issues. It just means I spent some time planning in between writing.

So for now I will keep thinking and rushing to get all of my editing done. I know that I do want to start a new novel so hopefully that will be enough encouragement to keep me going. Guess we will just have to wait and see.
