NaNoWriMo... In December!

To my shame and regret, I didn't participate in NaNoWriMo this year because I spent the entire month of November doing college applications. Really it's a lot of work! But now that I'm (almost) done applying, I plan to sit back and relax during December. Aka, I'm going to start writing again. I have a few new novel ideas that I've set aside for awhile and I'm going to start them up again. I plan to try to write a 50,000 word novel in the month of December. We'll see how that goes. Last year I finished NaNoWriMo at 30,000 words and an almost complete manuscript that I never finished but it was still one of my greatest accomplishments. It gives me the encouragement to try again. I'll probably never return to that one, it was waaaaaay too crappy.

Maybe everyone else will be spending December doing revisions. Or maybe someone would like to join me in attempting to write a novel in December? For me, having 2 weeks off from school will give me plenty of time to sit around my house writing. It's the perfect time of year. Most people are probably super busy around Christmas time, usually it's the opposite for me.

Good luck to anyone trying rapidly to finish up their novels this November!


  1. You can do it! I doubt I'll get to 50k this year. I got sidetracked by pneumonia and lost my energy for it. I don't plan on quitting though so I'll be cheering you on in December as I trudge my way through the thick sticky goo that is my NaNo project...

  2. thanks for the encouragement! sorry you got sick but hey, there is always december. :)

Thanks for the comments! I read every single one and try to reply, either on your blog or another comment! They make my day!

As of 1/17/11, Book Infinity is an awards-free blog. My schedule is busy as could be, and I don't have time to follow all the rules to pass them on. But I really do appreciate the thought, thanks so much for thinking about me!
