I'm not sure how this could possibly creep up on me. I've done it since 2009. But this year I am doing it DIFFERENTLY and creep upon me it did.
Probably I should explain that in these interim years I've come to believe I can't NOT participate in NaNoWriMo... I know some people don't get it, but to ME, the risk of heading off on some tangent is bigger than the problems of 'not editing as I go'. I end up with a BETTER WORK after a month of crazy-paced insanity than I do after SEVERAL months or the slower version.
This year, though, is full-on different for me. I am going to write books 7-10 of my serial, about a quarter of which was written previously (but need to have PoV changed) so I am officially a rebel.
I really have approaching 75K to write, and I will only track new words... but I am a little stressed as to how this will go.
Anybody else playing NaNoWriMo?
