Now that we’re into October, I need to start thinking about whether I want to take part in NaNoWriMo next month. I intended and wanted to last year, but unfortunately my idea didn’t get off the ground and so I didn’t get past the first couple of days. So this year I have a couple of ideas, one a light hearted novel and the other is the historical novel I planned to write last year. If I choose the latter one, I need to make sure that I plan it a lot better than I did last year. Hmm. Decisions!
It’s the tenth anniversary of NaNoWriMo this year, so it would be a great year in which to take part. I’d like to think that I could do it, although I think that I’d lower my goal to simply finishing the 50,000 words required, rather than going for the limit like I did in 2006. I reached 163,185 words then, which involved long days (and nights) of writing, including two sequels to the original book I planned, which came to a natural end after 79,000 words!
