OMG! I did it… I signed in for NaNoWriMo!
I did it! I really did it! I signed in for NaNoWriMo 2013!
I am both excited and scared. While I was filling the form with my personal information I felt a knot in my stomach and I knew I was right in trying this experience.
I know that particular kind of knot. It’s the same I felt when I fell in love with my boyfriend; the same I felt when I decided to go to a different University for my specialisation; the same I feel everytime I’m taking a big step and I know is the right one.
My stomach knows me better than my brain so I am inclined to trust it a lot.
When the decision is made, my brain takes over and I begin planning. In October and November, I will need a great deal of careful planning, because I’ll have plenty to do and little time.
However, I found that I’m not the only one planning. Peter Germany, a colleague writer and blogger, wrote on his blog about this too and, I confess, I took the idea of talking about my plans from his site.
So, what am I going to do during these months?
1. I’m going to search for a new job, since the previous one is over. This means I’ll be going around a lot, delivering CVs and collecting a huge amount of sympathetic looks from companies doormen. You know, it takes quite a lot of time!
2. I’m going to write blog posts because I planned a lot of them but I didn’t manage to keep up with my schedule because of Internet breakdown.
3. Tomorrow and next Saturday I’m going to have an English exam. I need to pass it in order to get the FCE Cambridge Certificate so… keep your finger crossed for me!
4. October will be also devoted to writing my medieval/fantasy story, that will NOT be my NaNoWriMo project, and to planning my romance story, that will be my NaNoWriMo project. I tossed and turned these ideas in my mind for a while, so… let’s see what happens!
What else? Oh yes, I’ll have to get through all the ordinary stuff, as anyone else does.
And what about you? What are your plans for October and November?
Thank you for reading so far and remember to have a look at Peter Germany’s Blog.
