I don't think I'm going to do it.
I've been doing NaNoWriMo since 2008 (that's a guess). NaNo is an excellent tool to teach the uninitiated how much is enough if you have a dream to write a novel. *Raises hand* Goal accomplished. I wrote a novel. In fact, in the last 16 months I have written seven (7) novels. I'm kinda pooped.
My first two years as a participant, I knew zero (0) people who participated in NaNo (or who even wrote at all for that matter). Last year I knew three (3) people. This year I know a gajillion. My facebook is plastered with people who are starting their NaNo books. I'm jealous. I'm excited to start one of my own. But I'm still kinda pooped. Despite that, I feel like a party pooper.
When I think of being a party pooper such as I am, I think of this clip from Father of the Bride.
And then I laugh and think of this clip about superfluous buns.
So I'm sitting this one out folks. I'm hoping to finish my current work in progress, but other than that...I guess I will see you next year in NaNoland.
Enjoy, and happy NaNoWriMo to all participants!
