Shaking in My Boots!


I’m shaking in my boots!

November 1st is looming on the horizon and I will then start writing for the NaNoWriMo challenge!

I’m terrified about what I’ve gotten myself into!  Inside, I don’t want to fail in front of my friends and fellow bloggers.  Can I do this?  Really?

Maybe it’s the push (or shove) I need to get my butt in gear.  My writing has been stagnating now for some time.  This may just be the jump start that I need.

What am I going to write about?  Wellllll…. I’ve got a good idea forming.  We will see if it translates to paper.  All of my previous writing has never been planned out.  I just take that little “ping” I get and run with it.

It will be interesting to see if my plan/no plan works out with this big of a project!  I’ve never written anything that was 50,000 words long!

Well, my peeps, wish me luck!  I will keep you posted as to how I am progressing.

    I signed into my NaNo account to commit to writing and either my laptop or my wireless or the NaNo site froze…. or maybe it was all of the above! Anyway, I have not officially signed up yet but I do plan on doing it. If you can stay on track with your 1667 words a day, or something close to that, it’s totally doable. 🙂
