It’s October, which means National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is just around the corner. I’m still uncertain as to whether or not I’m going to participate. I have an idea for a book that I’m brainstorming right now, but I don’t know if I will have the time to participate. At least, not officially. Even if I don’t put my name down absolutely, I will have a goal for the month of November.
There are two possibilities. One, I do the book I’m brainstorming after spending this month getting it ready and outlined. Two, I do all the rewrites on The Changeling that need to get done (and it is the equivalent of writing a whole other book). I would like to get The Changeling done, but it’s such a major rewrite that I feel it’s going to take longer than a month and it’s something I don’t want to rush. But if I do the new idea, I don’t want it to end up like The Changeling, which was last year’s NaNo project (in other words, I don’t want to have to rewrite the entire thing just because I rushed through it for NaNo).
Whichever I choose to do, if I do participate officially, I’m not going to rush it. Even if I don’t make the 50,000 goal.
Are you participating in NaNoWriMo this year?
