As many of you know, I write (duh.. bloggie be a hint, eh?).
I've decided once again to join NaNoWriMo this year. (the server has been busy today with folks signing up for tomorrow, keep trying!)
NaNoWriMo stands for:
I signed up last year and didn't make much progress. I had a friend who signed up, and TRIPLED the amount of words needed.
I feel more prepared this year, and will use it for free-association or journal writing or for jotting down and expanding a few ideas rather than a novel per se. By the end of the month or (fingers crossed) the middle of the month I hope to be working on a specific novel, but I want to kind of sneak up on it :-}
I have a strong tendency to edit while I write. This stops me in my tracks when I feel the need to make a decision on which direction the plot will twist.
I am Libra with Libra rising, and, as advertised, it takes a very long time for me to choose among possibilities if I let myself wallow in the choices as I want to. Heck, it used to take me 15-20 minutes to decide on which pair of socks to wear, before I narrowed the choices to two, and wore one of each pair. (Yes, I was an odd child, but happy)
