NaNoWriMo! National Novel Writing Month! It starts this weekend and I don’t have a novel title or outline. I do have an idea though. I’m a little worried but I feel okay as reading through the NaNoWriMo information I learnt something about myself (maybe), I’m a “panster”. The definition on the NaNoWriMo site says pansters believe in hardcore spontaneity, I don’t think that’s me however the fact that I have no outline or notes yet, means I can’t tick the “planner” category. I am hoping to jot some ideas down before the official start though, so maybe I’ll be someone in between? A plantster?

Now that I’ve finally decided to join, I’m excited and ready for some fun. By the way, I tested myself the other day and didn’t meet the daily word goal of 1,667 words to meet the monthly total of 50,000 words. So I’m also a little scared, however in my defence that was for blog posts, not a novel, could be different once I have the freedom to just type and not worry about editing.

  1. Good luck, Kellie! I saw your post about your first novel being in production. Did that one come to life? If so, I would think that experience would serve you well, and if not, what better time than now to dive into what you so obviously feel a calling to complete!?

    Best Wishes on a worthy challenge!
