Why I’m Participating in NaNoWriMo

I’m a tremendous planner.

I can make you a weight loss plan. I can make you a study plan. If it can be planned, I can plan it.

The problem is, I hate following my plans. Because something always comes up. Or, because I’ll just start over again tomorrow. Oh, I’m like three episodes away from finishing this series on Netflix, so I might as well just wait.

I suck at finishing my plans.

So, I’m starting small. Kind of…

I’m going to focus on this one thing for the next 30 days.

My novel is going to suck and that’s ok.

Once I’m done, I’ll have written a novel. How many others can say that?

More importantly, I’ll have built the writing habit I’ve been dreaming of developing.

Everyday, at 6:30 PM, I’ll sit down and write 1666 words a day.
