NaNoWriMo's Coming Up!

Hey everybody! What with my busy schedule lately, it completely slipped my mind that NaNoWriMo is just around the corner! For those of you who don't know, NaNoWriMo is the short term for "National Novel Writing Month", which takes place every year in November. As the name implies, participating authors attempt to write a 50k word novel in just one month! :D More info on NaNoWriMo can be found at the official website: 

I personally have never taken part, but it sounds like so much fun and those of my friends who have done it highly recommended it. This year I will unfortunately have to pass once more - mostly because my brain would explode if I had to juggle editing FH, recording Falling Star, NaNoWriMo, school, and whatever semblance of a social life I have managed to maintain. Ah well... there's always next year, yes? ;) I've always wanted to participate... I think come next November I'll try and free up my schedule especially for this. :D

So, what about you guys? Are you participating in NaNoWriMo? I'd love to hear your novel ideas if so - and how you intend to balance your schedule to finish this thing! I could definitely use some tips, considering I had to forgo editing FH again today due to homework, homework, and more homework. :( I'm crossing my fingers that tomorrow and Friday will fare a bit better, but if they don't... this weekend, I promise I'll do a major editing operation to make up for the lost days! (Coffee, here I come. :D)

love, Topaz
