Nah, No WriMo

It’s November already, which presents us all with the perennial question, to NaNoWriMo or not to NaNoWriMo?

I want to do this. Not particularly because I want to prove myself that I can write a short novel — I’ve already proven to myself that I can do that by doing it. I do have many stories that I want to tell, though, and any excuse is as good as another. One particular writing project has been nagging at me for the last month, and despite telling myself every day I need to get it out, I’ve not had either the time or the energy at the end of the day.

Martin at Treasure Tables has already taken the month off for NaNoWriMo, putting his blog into rerun mode while he churns out the words.

I think I’ll be holding off on making a commitment to NaNoWriMo this year. I’ve got an even busier November this year than last, so I know anything I commit to is just going to be another obligation that will either get cut when push comes to shove, or be unenjoyable. Hopefully I can clear enough time and peace of mind to make some progress on writing projects, but hope is about all I can expect.
