I have just become a new member of Red Room as well as become (this October) one of the millions of would be writers and a few seasoned ones as well - of Nanowrimo! Its pretty amazing actually, as I never heard about Nanowirmo before this year. I was sitting around one day feeling that I needed to do something with my life, my brain slowing dying from having been out of college for a little over a year. I thought about the things I love to do and what I could see myself doing forever and ever and ever, if my chosen profession of HR doesn't work out. Besides having a burning desire to do cartoon voice overs, I aspire to become a novelist. Nanowirmo is my first real attempt to write and FINISH a novel ( Aside from a few dozen poems, I have attempted to write a novel in the past and it still remains unfinished on my computer hard drive. Sigh.)
And, what a rush! Its amazing to sit down and type away, have that feeling that if you don't write you have neglected your novel as if some redheaded step child or ever worse, a forgotten lover! I feel like the end will be looming near soon and guilty for not meeting my daily quota. But, I WILL finish! I must!
Yes, I think that Nanowirmo has sparked a flame in me that will only keep going after this November is long gone...I can't await to see what happens next!
