It's that time of year again. No, not the witchy-warlock, sugar induced day we're creeping up on. Though, come Wednesday, there will be a li'l witch, a grave ghoul, a grown man in a scary mask named Uncle Charlie, and a woman with a pointy witch hat donned for Halloween. But, it's the day after, November 1st, that I'm talking about.
It's NaNoWriMo time again!Come Thursday, I'll be click clacking the keyboard down the ol' wordy bunny trail. I followed the trail part of the way last year and am looking forward to what I find along the way this year.
If your not familiar with NaNo, simply put, it's a whole lotta people from around the globe, all writing a new fictional novel with a frenzy, attempting to write their way towards 50,000 words in 30 days.
Last year, I 'pantsed' NaNo - started writing with merely a brief, vague idea of a story. I swore I would be a 'plotter' this year and outline what I want to write ahead of time. And while I've been working out some story ideas, I'm still short of an outline. Truthfully, I'm still short of a decision about which story idea I actually want to write. I have three I'm darting between. All three are different genres. But, come November 1st, there will either be family drama, a consciousness transfer, or a woman running for her life.
Have you ever whipped words together for NaNoWriMo in years past? Are you participating this year? If your writing, do you know what words you'll be wicking together?
