For those who haven’t heard of it, NaNoWriMo is ‘National November Writing Month’.  It challenges you to write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November.

I have considered doing it on several occasions and I sort of have done it once.  The problem always seems to be that I’m in the middle of a manuscript when it rolls around, or I’m working on a short story for Christmas or something.  This year I find myself busy doing some pretty heavy rewrites of my novel thanks to WordFalls excellent feedback.

The ‘sort of’ time I mentioned sadly doesn’t count, but I like to think it does.  I was writing my first draft of my novel and I was half-way through it when November rolled around.  At that point, I did go on to write 50K in November to finish my novel on the 28th, so that’s why I only ‘sort of’ count it.

I don’t know if I am going to do it this year.  I haven’t made up my mind (nor do I know what I’d write if I did).  What about you?  Are you going to do it?  If so, what are you going to write about?
