When did you decide to become a crazy person?

I think I might be a little crazy. I just signed up for NaNoWriMo. My profile is here: http://www.nanowrimo.org/eng/user/678020.

I'm going to be so impressed with myself if I manage this. To complete it by the timeline it means I'll have to write about 1700 words ever single day for a month. That's so many words. More than I've ever written on consecutive days. Most of my writing attempts stall before they even get to that mark. I'm a bit excited though. Most of it is going to be terrible, but I have an idea which I'm happy with and have been thinking about it a lot.

At the very least it will be a good exercise and force me to write. I wonder if I'll be able to have a social life for that month. It's unlikely.

It'll be interesting to see how my mood changes as this thing goes along. I imagine I'll become really sick of it. I just hope I don't give up.

In most creative endevours I have found myself to be a bit of a quitter. I decided to become a sewer and just couldn't bring myself to part with my pretty dresses. Tried to start a web comic and failed. I don't even remember the web address for that. It'd be funny to go back and find it.

Internets wish me luck!

Oooh goodluck! /throws confetti

I wanted to do NaNoWriMo this year, but bleh, my youngest will be 6 months around that time and I have no time D:

I do the same with my creative endeavors. I have a shelf full of yarn for the blankets intended to crochet, and another shelf of ones I made I need to piece together, and then a shelf of pinned and cut items that need to be sewn.
