Nanner, neener, nano

It's almost nano time.

I'm going again this year and happily talked my mini-me, Lea, to do it too. And we've been discussing our plans and I started thinking that maybe it's time to let the universe guide me and not to plan at all.

I had an outline and character studies started for the story I intended to do but now I'm thinking no.

I'm considering going into this with no idea at all. Start writing and see what story decides to be told. It could be wonderful. It could be terrible.

It'll probably be crazy and frustrating and creative.

I've been working so hard to be a writer like all the other writers. To sell and be a little more successful and hell.... it stopped being fun.

Fun is when you write because the writing is what you want to do. Fun is when you don't care if it makes sense. Fun is when you laugh out loud at your own craziness.

Nano seems like a perfect time to have some fun.


  1. Is it too late to back out?

    Hehe - kidding. I got me just over a day 'til the 1st and then it's all systems go. I might start out just typing the word NaNo for a page or two but it's writing, right?


  2. The first nano I did, I let Mollie write the last sentence that put us at 50,000 words.

    Trust me, it didn't match the rest of the story.

  3. LOL I can imagine.

    Can I borrow her later in the month, just incase? Don't matter if it's not the same as mine - might improve it :D
