NaNoWriMo is in two weeks!


(That's pretty much all I have to say on that.)

I'm not MLing, not going to Night of Writing Dangerously, not doing 50k Day, not thinking of a second book, and not even setting a word count goal for this year until it feels right. I haven't even planned any write-ins yet, though that could change. In theory this means all the stress I had last year should be gone, and that's mostly the case. Any stress I have now isn't NaNo-related, and the things I am for sure repeating this year weren't causing significant stress.

Let's see how well I cruise through this NaNo, then.

So are you just gonna "take it easy" this year?

I'm using this year to totally fine-tune last year's novel as I think this has more potential to be something published than anything else I've ever written.

Pretty much! If a word count goal or a second novel comes along (and they probably will, let's face it), then I'll take them. I'm just not actively seeking them out this year.

After last year I could use that break.

And that sounds fun! Funny, I know lots of folks in my circles who are rewriting/editing/rebelling this year. Must be in the water... or something that just happens after NaNoing long enough. Sounds like a study in the making.

Wow! *chuckles* Whenever you start hanging out in chat, poke me. I keep popping in, but no one's in yet when I do.

I need to pop back in! This week has been really busy, and this weekend isn't any lighter with company in town. But soon!

*chuckles* Yeah, this weekend's either going to be low key or crazy, and Monday/Tuesday I'm going to be running around doing things. Hopefully the rest of the week though might be sane. :P
