    Thanks for linking to my post. There’s never a good time for NaNoWriMo. Last year I thought of doing one and didn’t as I was busy in November. This year I’m even busier, but decided to jump in anyways. Good luck with your journey.

    I envy everyone who at least starts and is giving it a try. I don’t even start 🙁

      I don’t think it’s worthy trying if you don’t sign up with the goal to finish in mind. I also think it’s better to set your own pace than to put the pressure to perform on yourself, so don’t feel bad about it. Just don’t give up 😉

    I was freaking out when NaNo came around this year. I wanted to register but, then again, I didn’t. On a good day, I was getting around 500 words. But I really, really, really wanted to finish my novel-in-progress this year. At least the first draft. The pace I was working at wasn’t really working for me. I decided to go for NaNo but with a rebel status because I was continuing my novel. Halfway through NaNo, I am grateful for it. I didn’t think I’d be able to hack the daily word count but (and nobody is more surprised than me) I’ve been able to do it.

    I think you have to try different things, even if you don’t think you can and even if you end up failing. Sometimes, something will give you that unexpected boost. Of course, you shouldn’t be afraid to change tracks when something isn’t working for you either.

    Congrats on giving NaNo a shot! 😀
