It's Here Again!

Well, Camp NaNoWriMo, we meet again! and this time, you're not getting the better of me!...or maybe you will!

Yes, i will be putting my fingers to the keyboard for a third time, to attempt a completion of NaNoWriMo.

i have got to say, I love it! unfortunately, my lifestyle doesn't quite adhere to the demands of writing a 50,000+ word novel in a month. But hey, ho, here I go...

Someone once asked why on earth I wanted to do this, the answer is simple, it's my passion. Some people are T.V. addicts, others sporty (I was before children!) this is now my hobby of choice. It has been since I had an imagination. I couldn't stop myself. Even filling an exercise book entirely at junior school when asked to write a story, and given a few pointers. The teacher was rather surprised to say the least.

I can't stop myself. Half the time, I don't know where it's heading. I just get infront of my laptop, and go for it. I guess in one aspect, it isn't really me that's writing it, the characters kind of take over.

In the beginning, I don't know which characters are going to be endearing, or which are going to be a darn nuisance, they just kinda evolve and I go with it.

The only problem is, each NaNoWriMo I start afresh...so, yes, I have umpteen novels started and abandoned, it's no problem really though, it's enjoyable.

So, as long as my three little rascals eat their tea on time, get through bathtime without swamping the home, and drop off to sleep, sleeping right through the night (never happened yet...) early, then it should be a smooth ride this month...do you think...
