To NANOWRIMO or not to NANOWRIMO…

I am currently trying to decide if I even want to try NANOWRIMO this year, or if I should give this year a pass since I have so much going on. I started a new job on Monday, so I am going to be working on learning my new function and getting it down. I am also still working on my Master’s and will be finishing up my poetry class to begin a Lit class on Shakespeare. I am definitely leaning toward giving it a pass this year

But…there is a part of me that keeps thinking “Writers Write” so I should at least try, and just make my goal something more attainable with my current schedule. Like maybe write something everyday; this can be a poem, paper, blogpost, whatever as long as I sit down and write once a day. That seems like an achievable goal that sets a challenge but not one that will overwhelm.

Are you doing NANOWRIMO? What writing goals do you have?

  1. Good luck with your new job.

    I’m not doing NaNoWriMo. To be honest, writing at all has been tough for me this year with one thing or another. Even if it hadn’t though, we’re in the middle of organizing a move, so NaNoWriMo wouldn’t be happening anyhow (the hope is to be moving in late November or early December, assuming we can make it happen). Mind you, though I often consider it, and sometimes do my own writing challenge in November, I’ve never officially participated in NaNoWriMo anyhow.

    I’m not sure if I”m going to do nanowrimo yet. I haven’t done it in the last few years and the website right now is too brandnew and shiny . I miss the old nanowrimo website
