What Possessed Me?

There I was, idly browsing, minding my own business, and next thing, I've signed up to write a novel - in a month! Starting 1st November. I'm not the only one doing it, and I'm not the first, so I'm in good company, I'm sure, but it wasn't what I meant to be doing for November. There was a lot of TV to watch. There were a lot of crackers to eat. There were a lot of tail-ends of yarn to be sewn in on the squares I've been crocheting for an endless afghan. And now, in 25 days time, I'm planning to embark on something quite a bit longer than any poem I've ever written, that's for sure. Wish me luck. Oh..... It's all because of NaNoWriMo. Let's just see what happens, shall we?

Oh, Imelda, I'm so excited that you're doing NaNoWriMo! I did it last year and am planning on participating again. We're going to have so much fun!

Cate! Yay! I've found a confederate I know already! I could fall at the first hurdle, but I'm going to start, anyway. Thrilled to think you'll be along on the ride! Fun, indeed!

Way to go! Sounds like a great fun way to encourage more words onto the page.

Sounds like one of those great places, btw, to move and change some of the past, too.

Oh, good for you! I tried it last year, and it was a lot of fun! Best of luck! I hope we'll get to read it someday, too.

Well, I was thinking very hard about doing this too, so perhaps you will give me courage! Although, as you say, November does hold many other challenges - but then, what's one more :)

MsShad... my username for NaNoWriMo is GreenishLady too. I've put you on my buddy list. So maybe having a buddy, I'll get past day 1! ... Do you mean how do you add a buddy or how do you write a novel? Add a buddy by finding their profile and click on Add to my buddy list. Write a novel... I'll tell you on 30th November!

Anyone else doing it want to be buddies? More the merrier!
