Getting ready for NaNo!

As you can see by my big-assed grin (and my 2007 t-shirt - I had to show it off!) I'm excited about NaNo this year! I absolutely love doing NaNo. I write every day before work during the rest of the year, but I like the extra push, the extra jolt of adrenaline of NaNo.

I also love the camaraderie. Being a writer is such a solitary thing, and any chance to get a group of writers together, all pulling toward a common goal (but necessarily in our own, unique ways) is fantastic. The excitement, the angst, the stress, the fun! I'm nervous and excited about starting on Thursday.

In the next day or so, I'm going to take a photo of my NaNo set up and post it here; I'd love it if fellow NaNoers would do the same!


  1. Julie, nice shirt and nice grin :).

    By "NaNo set up" do you mean writing space? I'll have to take a pic.

  2. Oh, I love this! \o/

    Being a writer is such a solitary thing

    Amen to that. NaNo is the only time of year you get that pure feeling of "lots of people are crazy enough to live like this too!" :D

  3. Struggling: yep, writing space. I is a communicator o__O

    Heather: That's *exactly* it! It's like what a writer's conference should be - all the fun and camaraderie, none of the posturing and (unnecessary) angst!
