I am trying to gather my thoughts for November. It is going to be a big month for me. NaNoWriMo is the month of November. It'll be my first year to participate, and if all goes well, not my last. I have two web badges here that you can click on to find out more. One is to indicate that I am a participant. The other is just because it gives a snippet of what it is about and I couldn't help but put it up there. If only I had a green typewriter to go with it.
I encourage all of you (all zero) to participate if writing is your thing. I'm trying to get my mother to do so... I will have to call her hubby to tell him so he'll force her to do it with me.
Right now I'm having a hard time deciding which story to use. Do I want to use the one that I have been thinking about and really putting my energy into thoughts and planning of it? Or do I want to use the one that I've only just thought of, that I will do someday, but isn't on my mind nearly as much? My hesitation is that you're writing it in 30 days. No editing, just writing. Do I want to use the idea I have and love and likely do it poorly. Granted, I will have the next months and months to edit it. Or do I want to use a fresh idea without fear of it turning out poorly, but risk burning out on writing it and not wanting to write for months while I heal from carpal tunnel?
