Third Times the Charm? – Signing Up for NaNoWriMo Again

Hello writer bees!

Time flies so quickly and it’s already October! And I’ve only just started to think about NaNoWriMo. Geez, I’m behind. Honestly, I wasn’t sure If I should, or even could, participate in NaNoWriMo this year. The last two tries ended in “failure“.

Frankly speaking, I’ve been distant with my WIP as of late. Life and freelancing get so busy and drafts get put on the back burner. I want to change that.

I have to get back in touch with my characters. I want fall in love with the setting again. I want to add more to the story and create something special. That’s my plan for October and NaNoWriMo.

I don’t know what my word count goal for the month of November will be yet. Maybe 30,000? Maybe the big 50,000? The basic skeleton of a plot is mostly done, hovering at around 20,000 words. Perhaps my goal should just be to write everyday, even if it’s a small amount.

Sounds like I’m just convincing myself to commit to NaNoWriMo this year. My boyfriend said “What’s the worse that could happen? You write words?” Thank you, handsome voice of reason. And who knows? Maybe third times the charm.

What do you guys think? What should my word count goal be? How are you guys planning for NaNoWriMo? Would you be interested in my weekly updates during November? Tell me everything in the comments. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
