Looks like I’m going to be a Rebel on NaNoWriMo this year. I really want to finish the story I began last year, and continuing with this tale officially makes me a “rebel” 🙂 What the heck, I’ve already got nearly 69K words on paper and the remaining chapters outlined, so I’ll be better served trying to finish this, rather than ending up with another half-finished novel.
Stay tuned for further developments in this saga. Who knows, I might cave in and start from scratch November 1st. Still 4 days to ponder this. But rebelling is looking more and more appealing to me.
So, did you rebel?????
I did sign up to write to, but, chickened out the day before when I had a look at the 30 day writing schedule, I find it hard to write more than a sentence or two a day!!!
Warmest regards and good luck with the writing
Yeah, I’m a rebel this year, because I am continuing the novel I began last year. I wrote 62K+ words (or 12 chapters) last year and then didn’t touch the damn thing until this November. I thought I’d use the impetus to get a little further. (I have 37 chapters outlined)
So, although I am writing new material, I am using an older theme, and by Nano’s rules, I’m a rebel. Not that it matters too much. Getting further with the novel seems more important to me than another half finished story. 50K words is nowhere near an acceptable count for a novel.
You should have tried it. Certainly an exercise in stress management. I’ll remember to give you a push next year. Even if you don’t finish, I bet you’ll get more done than six months of regular procrastination.
