Yes, I have signed up to take the challenge again this year. I’ll do my best to cross the finish line of 50,000 words, but mostly I wanted to get myself back on track writing every day. While I’m into my 3rd month of a year-long left elbow surgery recovery, the word count isn’t as important as the consistency of writing every day. I know that some days may be better than others.
This year I’ll be working on my middle-grade novel that I promised to Jake R. I’m working from a synopsis and a scene list, much better (for me anyway) than writing by the seat of my pants. While I don’t plot out everything, I do like to follow an outline (not detailed, mind you). I still let my characters go where they feel they need to go—I’ll rein them in during the editing process.
Wish me encouragement! And any other writer that is up for the NaNoWriMo challenge.
