Ready, Set, Go: I Signed Up for NaNoWriMo
After debating for the past couple of weeks, I signed up to participate in National Novel Writing Month 2014.
I signed up on the last possible day to do it — on Halloween. I tried not to ponder the implications.
Shortly before noon yesterday, I went to the NaNoWriMo site and entered my username and password. It was easy enough.
And, yes, it was pretty spooky, too. I've made a commitment now. Gulp.
Thing is I'm not interested in publishing what I write into their website so I can obtain "Winner’s Badge."
What I'm doing is using the pressure of the daily word count from NaNoWriMo to help me discipline myself to write 50,000 words. In one month.
I'm not writing a fiction work, so it doesn't really fit into the "novel writing" which by definition is the goal of NaNoWriMo.
I hope this isn't cheating.
