Nanowrimo Thoughts

No Plot, No Problem. Chris Baty's book is in media mail to me.

How strange that I'm uptight about doing Nanowrimo this year and worried about a plot or how to do it.

Last year, I started late, finished well and published with little editing. How was Running with Scissors, my novel? I don't know. I didn't read it after I finished formatting it for Lulu.com for printing, but comments have been very positive.

The challenge is more complex this year since I know what it's all about. 'For a lark' mode last year was a breeze and when the cyberchute purged 5000 words, I didn't cry very long but re- keyed as many as I remembered and forged ahead.

Has the unknown become less frightening than the known?

Will you be there?
