I still don’t know what I want to write. I’ve thought about writing a meta-novel, a piece about a NaNoWriMo mod. If I did that, I could count all my forum posts fromNovember in my word count! It would be a mind-numbingly boring piece. However, I could do evil things to my least-favorite spammers. That would be a plus.
I’ve also toyed about with asking my husband to decide what I want to write about this year. He’s always got good ideas, but he’s just not a writer, so his execution sucks. He tried NaNo once. Got 1500 words, at least. That was kinda neat… I wish he’d do it with me.
I’ve thought about invoking the Zokuto clause this year… I mean, I’ve won several times, one year in just 10 days! I have nothing left to prove. 😉 I’m also not an ML anymore, so I don’t feel compelled to stick tot he rules. However, I wouldn’t feel right validating, and frankly, I want to legitimately win every year. I’m just too damn loyal to nano to join the ranks of the rebels! It wouldn’t feel right to me. I mean, I’ve spent so much time telling people on the forums “yes, you DO have to start from scratch, no, you CAN’T write 50k words and claim a win.” that it would feel hypocritical of me to not stick by the rules. Having to set an example and all that.
Oh, the burden of responsibility!
Who knows. You’re lucky… you get to see my thought process as I write it. not everyone gets that view!
