NaNo – uh oh

Today is the start of NaNoWriMo, 2010. I’ve signed up for the challenge/torture as Henlady. Anyone who knows me will understand why I chose that name. (The ladies are being quite productive, btw.)

I participated in NaNo twice before. The first time, in 2007, I “won”. I churned out my 1667 words every day. Well, I averaged that. Some days were good, some days weren’t. Real life and all that. At the end of the month I converted my scribblings, sent them in for verification, and received my digital certificate. Woo hoo!

The following year, I tried again. Alas, I allowed real life to intrude too much, or I lacked chutzpah. Or both. I didn’t even sign up last year, knowing we’d be traveling for American Thanksgiving, and that would infringe on my writing time.

Now, for some reason, I believe this year will be different. We’ll still be traveling later this month, probably more than last year given how spread out our family has become. Yet I still think I can whip off a 50K first draft.

Stay tuned…

    Life got in my way – the request has taken my writing in a whole different direction. I didn’t sign up, but am hoping to do at least three weeks of NaNo-type activity starting Sunday!

    Good luck, Lu – churn out those words super fast so you’ll be done (or close to being done) when you have to travel north for holidays :)

    Getting a requested submission ready is WAY more fun than NaNo. Still *happy dancing* for you!!

    I’ve gotten off to a good start with my NaNo, a little over 5K so far.
