Like Sarah & Laura, I've just decided I will do the Nanowrimo thing again this year. Not sure I should be doing it, but last year, got a novel completed in 2 weeks (well, 3 quarters of it) so shall do it again. Don't know if it will be in the same universe or something else entirely. I shall just have to wait & see.
I will both curse and enjoy the challenge, as much as I do with all my writing projects. It's a time to both be structured and free-flowing. It involves and condenses all the joys and frustrations of what takes normally takes a lot longer. It's writing in a time-box: all constrictions visible, no opening for escape, and yet, within that box, there are also no limits (TARDIS analogy, anyone?).
So Sarah - Laura - I will be joining you.
Best of luck to all 3 of us!
