To NaNo or Not to NaNo?

Hello fellow people interested in words,

Part of me wondered, do I dare participate in NaNoWriMo again?

For those who are unaware, NaNoWriMo is the National Novel Writing Month that occurs in November, see  They encourage everyone to write - goal is 50,000 words from Nov 1st to Nov 30th. See the for more info. Best part, it costs nothing and everyone can win.

Last year I was healing from carpel tunnel surgery in October for both hands, and this year I'm finally recovering from a 4 month disc rupture in my back - was putting pressure on my left leg making it very weak and impossible to use going up/down stairs. Now that I'm healed enough to function with daily activities, I've had to ask myself if I shall NaNo or not.

Today I decided; I shall NaNo.  Even if I don't feel good enough, the plotting I'm doing now will help me for when I am able to get the writing done. Plus you don't know you can do it unless you try. Feel free to add me as a friend or check out my NaNo profile at laurathejane78. You can find the synopsis of the next book here.

Best tip I ever read about NaNo was to Never Edit.  That's's time to write it and get it all out of your system.  Editing is for December.

Happy Writing,

Laura the Jane
