For the past four or five years, I plan on entering NaNoWriMo during November, but always manage to miss it. Every year, university deadlines, hospital trips or holidays have pushed it to one side, leaving me half regretting that I hadn’t bothered putting pen to paper. Each year, I start university or college in September and plan on having at least a basic idea to enter. Each year, I get bored with my idea and forget it.
This year is a little different.
This year is the first year since I learnt of its existence that I feel prepared to get involved. I’ve only got five days where I’ll be physically away from home and now that I’ve settled into a routine, I’ll hopefully actually sit down and write something. In theory.
