Okay, things have conspired to make NaNoWriMo a little bit impossible for me. The time that I could use writing extensively has been taken from me. My sister volunteered me for one thing. And then there's a giant project at work that I'm going to have to do as well. So until the eighth or ninth of November, my time will be scarce.
So, I was wondering, it's still just as good if I start on November tenth and write to December tenth isn't it? I mean, I won't get a NaNoWriMo super star student sticker to put on my shirt, but in reality, it'll accomplish the same thing for me in my life, right?
I really liked the idea of trying to use NaNoWriMo to jumpstart myself as a writer, and I'm not ready to let it go just because the week that it starts is shot for me. Then again, I suppose it's fairly likely that something else will come along to screw me over on the tenth. If that happens, then it's time to say this is it...fish or cut bait, son...sh*t or get off the pot...do or do not, there is no try...or some other platitude like that. Platitudes are good for a writer to use in abundance aren't they? I wish I knew...I guess I have a lot to learn about writing. I really need to get started.
