NaNoWriMo – am I crazy to try it again?

It’s National Novel Writing Month again!  And the question is:

Am I crazy to try it again?

Let’s see …

reading reading reading, reviews,  interviews, Caregiving, two homes to keep up, other family concerns, blog posts, emails, more writing …

sounds like a year ago this time! Only it’s more stressful as time goes on.

NaNoWriMo should either keep me going forward or push me over the edge of sound mind. 

I do have this novel I want to finish. I started it in NaNo 2010, at 50265 words I put it away for a year; in 2011 I picked up where I left off, at 32150 words I put it away for another year. (You can see that info on my NaNo pages update here and here.) It would be exciting to write my way to a great ending this time. The characters haven’t revealed to me how that ending will transpire, but it was all starting to come together to the resolving of a few critical issues leading to it.

All year the story and characters have been playing on my mind – not enough to write more but enough to keep it alive in my memory. I think it is a story waiting to be told.

So, what do YOU think? Am I crazy to try it again?  (I’m nodding YES!)

Should I do it anyway?  (I’m nodding YES!)

Will I do it?  (I’m nodding YES!)

Will you join me? OR will you support me? I am going to keep track here on my blog again, the same as I did the previous two times. Hopefully, I will have something good to report each day. I have installed two fun NaNoWriMo widgets on the right side of this page so you can watch my progress (of lack of) through this month.

Wish me well?

(Now I’m excited! even with 0 words for day one. 🙂 )

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂
