NaNoWri-Less Three Things

Nanowrimo 1All through October I’ve considered strategies for how to deal with a full-time job, this blog (especially the Three Things Serial), and other un-blogged things, and National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), — which begins in a few short days.

Some said “Oh no, don’t try to do NaNoWriMo this year. You already have too much on your plate.”

And then…

Some said “You’re not going to abandon the Three Things are you?”

I felt as conflicted as Mona is when she thinks about Boris!1920s flapper thinking

So I decided to “Wri-Less” in stead of WriMo.  Sort of.  I’ll keep the Three Things Going through November, but only one episode a week.  This particular story line might find its conclusion by the end of the year.  But I can’t really say, since the things you all send drive the plot.

Writing the draft of an entire novel, from scratch, in one month… Nanu Nanu is hard.  Oh Shazbot!  I mean NaNoWrimo.

I might be as wacky as a space alien by December, but I’m going to do both.

And now I bid you a fond, Nanu Nanu.

  1. Identify what inspires you to go on with NaNo. Find your inspiration. I’ll leave you a quote that helped me write my first book:

    Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal. ~Henry Ford


    1. Thanks Mary — that’s a great quote.
      Yes, I need inspiration just like everyone. But many times it’s about giving myself permission to do what enriches and entertains me — and sometimes to hide.
      I guess for me, writing is a place to hide. It’s the same with reading. That’s why I like fantasy. It moves my “hiding place” even farther away.

      So I’ll look for inspiration, and for permission! 🙂
