It occurred to me the other day that November will be here before I know it. Yes, there are still two more months and some change before then, but these last few months have just flown by. But for you writers out there, you know that November means National Novel Writing Month.
And see? I’m not the only one on countdown mode. According to their website, 71 days until NaNoWriMo 2011 begins!
I’m already really excited about it this year too. The last two years I worked on a series and didn’t really have “new” novels that I wanted to work on. But that’s changed. Within the last few weeks I’ve had a couple of kernels of ideas that I’d love to get started working on. But I’m saving those ideas for November. I’ve written down some of these ideas (no, have not started writing the actual novel!), and I guess I’ll see which one I think is stronger and can carry me through a month. At least I have some time to outline.
It just means that I can’t get started working on them right now. Which is a good thing since I have some revisions that I should be working on. But I love the excitement of starting a new project and being introduced to these new characters and their lives.
So anyone else planning to participate this year? Any ideas that you’re excited to flesh out come November?
