National Novel Writing Month


I did it. I went and signed up for NaNoWriMo and now I'm having buyer's remorse.
What the heck am I thinking?
I've never signed up for this before even though I've known about it for years, but I know me, I'll never write 50k in a month. 
I don't have the time to devote to this.
Are they insane? Am I insane?
Well, yes, the obvious answer is yes.

Well, whatever, I'm committed now.
Idiot.

Besides, I've had a story in my head for years that I can't ever get out. I've rewritten the first chapter in so many variations and then tossed it, it's ridiculous.
This is it's final chance.

Write it or Kill it. 

I should probably sound more enthusiastic, right?

Go, Clover, go!!!

Just write as much as you can--no revisions as you go. Just spew those words on the page. You can do it!!!

Yay! It's so much fun--glad you signed up. What's your username? Mine is Lara Lacombe (big surprise, right?) See you there!

Thanks guys. I'm really kinda nervous about it. I just signed up with my name too. Clover Autrey. Have you done this before, Lara? Do you friend each other? I saw writing buddies, but had no idea what that meant.
