Writing a novel (50,000 words) in a month without trying to edit or rewrite as I go will be a challenge. Who am I kidding? Getting 50,000 words on paper (well on a word document) in 30 days is a challenge in itself.
But NaNo's more than a challenge for me, it's a chance.
A chance to write.
I'll use NaNo to try my hands at something new. A genre I've never written before (still YA though). I can't wait to see how that plays out. I hope I'll reach the NaNo goal and that the 50k words don't suck too much.
So are some of you doing NaNo? Or do you think it's a waste of time? If you participate, why? To try something new?
