starting a novel

November means NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), which means ...a lot of writing, if I'm participating, which I've attempted to do for the past several years. November just seems busy, and, of course there are always a million reasons not to do something.

I'm baffled that some people are still just hearing about this project for the first time this year, and still baffled at other people who can't seem to make it past the first few hundred words ....people will silly mantras like, "the secret to writing is writing."

Um, I guess that's true. Sure....

I don't know what to say about it. You've got to want it. It's a "head down, power through," kind of deal.

I prefer to participate kind of on my own without plugging my words into the site. I don't tend to to thrive on support from others. Instead, I do my best to push myself, and lately, give myself the benefit of the doubt when I know I'm busy and just sick of writing all day anyway...
