NaNoWriMo 2011 has begun! Whoopee!

Whether you’ve plotted your way to this moment, or you are flying by the seat of your pants into the great blue beyond of your plot, you’re ready. When it comes to bashing out the first draft of your novel, there is no time like the present.

I wasn’t planning to join NaNoWriMo because of exams, but I’ve decided that I probably won’t ever try my hand at it if I let this I’m-too-busy attitude get the better of me, so here goes nothing! NaNoWriMo, here I come!

Like many others, I’ve always wanted to write a novel since I was youngish. Well, say, six years ago. But every time I came up with a new idea, I’d trash it after a few chapters because it just did not seem to be developing into anything readable. Everything would seem stereotyped and I would tear drafts in frustration.

But soon after, studies took over and writing faded out of my life. I haven’t written anything close to an opening of a novel in three years. I don’t even blog much now. So here’s to all the people who think they’re too busy to write – although I might not be as troubled as you, I hope you can also take some time to work on those dreams you have because you never know when it’ll be too late.

On a less serious note, I was thinking of doing a MyNoWriWe in December if I really didn’t join NaNoWriMo, so hey – if you can’t find something that will suit you and your pursuits, adapt or create something (good-natured, of course)! That’s how everything begins. 🙂
