If you've been around this space any length of time, you'll know I've documented my feelings and beliefs about NaNoWriMo before--and if I had bothered to stick one of those widgets with keyword terms in the sidebar (and if I had bothered to keyword all of my posts) you'd be able to find them all. Generally, if you're new here and don't want to scour through all my posts, my position is I believe NaNoWriMo can be a Very Good Thing for people. It definitely helped me get myself going down this crazy path.
Unfortunately, I rarely seem to be able to get it together to do NaNo these days. Why?
(let's hear it for the criminally-underrated Road to El Dorado)
It seems since my last attempt at NaNo (and what a joke that was; I'm not sure I wrote a single word), the stars have not been aligned. I've always been revising. Well, not this year. However, I'm also not exactly starting a new project. AS I mentioned last week (I think), I'm about 22,000 words into a new project, and said new project is going well.

If I can add 50,000 words to the manuscript by the end of November I'll be around 70,000, and that will mean an end is definitely in sight. So, with that in mind, I'm going to bend the rules of NaNo a bit and throw my hat into the ring. Strike up the band, I'm a....
How about you? Are you NaNo'ing this year?
