I'm not doing NaNoWriMo by myself. In addition to the 260,000 participates world wide, I am joined by my two children (ages 6 and 11). Both of them wanted to do it. Both of them set goals and are working toward them. The 6yo is wanting to write 250 words (he's just over 50 now). Oldest is shooting for 8K. Both of them should reach their goals. I think it is awesome.
Last night it occurred to me that I may not play catch with my children, we do word-sprints. Last night, my oldest and I wrote for 15 minutes without stopping. I would have included the younger kid, but he had to go to bed. Maybe today we'll get another word-sprint in.
No matter what, the important thing is that we are having fun and expanding our creative minds. That is what NaNoWriMo is all about. Writing creatively for 30 days.
Troubleshooter. It's been in my head for 20 years. It's time I got it out. I decided to do it for a couple of reasons.
- I have had it in my head for 20 years
- Most of the world has been built (see point 1)
- I needed something less emotionally intense than HJ to work on.
- If I get stuck, I can always blow up a building (or 3!).
- SciFi is fun!
