Do the N’s in NaNoWriMo stand for Nightmare?

I have no idea what I'm doing

I had my first sleepless night about NaNoWriMo. It’s something I’ve been meaning to do for years and something I keep ducking out of for legitimate excuses, but excuses nonetheless. This time I thought I’d give the ‘don’t think too much’ thing a try and signed up for it. I have wanted to write a book for so long that I am worried that I will discover along the way that I’m not really cut out for it. That would break my heart. I do not doubt my ability with writing. What I do doubt is whether I have a story to tell or not.

And so it is I find myself signed up for a very ambitious (according to me) goal and I’ve even managed to design a header. All well and good, but I don’t have a story to tell. I am hoping that inspiration will hit me when I stare at the blank screen.

Wish me luck!

  1. Ah! I could have written this post! It could have been me! Same fears! Same worries! But I am sure you have a pretty good story to tell. Looking forward to buying a copy and having it autographed with a very personal message. Big hug.
