Oh, NaNoWriMo, how you've set the internet aflame with excitement! I rather enjoy watching writers work for their NaNo goals each year, though I've never participated myself. I mean, I've written a novel in 15 days. I don't need help speeding up—I need help slowing down. (Actually, I've learned A LOT about slowing down this year.)
So here's to you, NaNo writers! Good luck! You can do it! If you need motivation, let me know. I am a big fan of the pep talk, if you haven't noticed. I will gladly cheer you on!
Today, I start my NaNoReaMo adventures. Twelve books. Thirty days. I've even decided that I'm going to stop editing and use this time to let poor Transparent simmer. I'm so excited to dig into these books! So many of them I've wanted to read all year.
My tentative plan is to read one book Monday through Wednesday, the next Wednesday trough Friday, and the third over the weekend. *Gulp* That's such a challenge for this slow reader! And so you know, there will be a temporary feature each Sunday on my blog—What I Read This Week—where I will share some of my thoughts on the books I finished.
If you are reading like I am, please let me know! I'd love to see what you're reading as well. And if you are doing the traditional NaNo, you are completely excused from reading my blog until you hit that 50k. But after that, I expect you to catch up. No, kidding. With all the reading I have to do, I'm sure November will be rather dull around here.
