To Do Or Not To Do?

So, remember last November, I told you all to never let me participate in Nanowrimo again. That it really wasn't the thing for me, and my novel would be better if I wrote it in my own time.

When I got an email from the Nanowrimo staff announcing that Camp Nanowrimo was just around the corner, I immediately thought, no, not for me, ignore it, don't be tempted! Then, I read the email and saw that you can choose your own word count. Anywhere from 10,000 to 999,999. Doesn't that sound like a pretty good idea?

I know I'm trying to finish my novel, The Pandora, by the end of March. But since I said that, I've only written about 3,000 words. I'm not admitting defeat; far from it. But would it be such a bad thing to admit that trying to finish this novel by Easter is going to be pretty much like participating in Nanowrimo, but without the motivation? 

My idea is this: write as much as possible in March. I'm not necessarily going to try and finish The Pandora, because if I don't, then I can put however many words I have left to write into the goal for Camp Nanowrimo.

Sound good? I think so too.


  1. How many words are you planning on making it?

    1. I'm using 50,000 as a guideline. I might make it less if the story ends before then, though.

  2. Finish on your own time,sweetie, and let it flow as it wants to...sort of like spinning fiber.
