NaNoWriMo ideas

Are you sick of me blogging about NaNoWriMo yet?

Last year at NaNoWriMo, I had little more than a concept in my head before I started writing. I learned my story, got to know my characters, and figured out ways to solve problems as I wrote. The story flowed onto the screen almost effortlessly.

So, why am I worried about this year? Maybe I'm concerned that last year's success was a fluke and I won't get more than a couple of chapters into my book before I freeze. Or because I have too many ideas and haven't yet settled on one. Or maybe it's that each of those ideas are little more than concepts in my head.

But if it worked once, it can work again, right? I need to stop freaking out, pick an idea, and just WRITE!


  1. No way, not sick of NaNoWriMo posts. Fascinating to follow along with you. All the power to you!!!

  2. I hope so! Still don't know which idea I'll run with, but I'm sure I'll have no trouble picking one once November 1st gets here.

  3. good luck - the beginning is always teh hardest to me!

  4. Thanks, Shelli. For me, the beginning is the easy part once I settle on an idea. Endings are the hard part for me!


I would love to hear from you!
