That’s all I’ve been seeing lately while surfing the creative writing blogs here on WordPress, so I figured I may as well write my own NaNoWriMo post. I’ve also added the 2012 Participant badge so the whole world (all three of you, that is) knows I’m doing it.
I have never participated, so I have no idea how it will go. I have a story in mind, though, and a writing buddy to keep me accountable. And I really, really want to win this thing…but, I have a feeling about a week into November things will get really busy and I will have to set it aside. I know, I know: I should have a more optimistic outlook, but,
really, I am being optimistic, because it will mean I am that much closer to getting my doctorate. (Then I’ll only have to face the horrors of trying to find a job.)
My advisor approved the draft of my dissertation. Woo hoo! Her revisions were minimal – it only took me a day to finish them. This means, of course, that I could possibly be defending by the end of November, which means I have a LOT of things to do between now and then.
In the meantime, I have some class prep to finish up and then I look forward to doing some research for my NaNoWriMo story.
