What I know about this year's NaNo

The Struggling Writer posted his list of things he knows about this year's NaNo. Here's mine:

1. I only have 25 days, not 30, thanks to some weekend obligations and holidays
2. This is the best I've felt before I started in the three years I've done it
3. My apartment will go seriously to seed
4. I will drink a great deal of caffeine.

That's about all I know ... the rest is a mystery. I like that.


  1. Good list. I'm in the same boat on #1. Also, this is the best I've felt as well because I think I know a bit more about writing this year and also because I actually did some planning!

    There is one thing I didn't put on my list. I think I'm going to take one vacation day in November and spend it in a library or coffee shop writing non-stop. This will be my catch-up day.

  2. How funny re: the vacation day...I'm doing the same! That's a good idea to be elsewhere...as long as I've got my headphones though. Can you write in a public place without them? I get too distracted, which is one of the reasons I don't go to the write-ins.

  3. Julie - home is much more distracting. As far as public goes, I'd have to find a place pretty remote. I figure a library would probably be a better choice than a coffee shop.

  4. Ditto to all but #2. I'm going to strive for moderation re: #4, but we'll see how that goes. :D
