I know it’s August and school are just starting up. But this is when I start longing for fall and ultimately NaNoWriMo.
Maybe it’s because September and October are kind of eventless months for me. It’s my birthday on September 3rd but after that it’s all NaNoWriMo in my mind.
I start planning and prepping long before the website has been updated. Lurking in the forums and watching video after video on youtube from previous NaNoWriMo years. Just to get in the spirit. Long before the spirit is needed. This is like longing for Christmas for me.
YES! NaNoWriMo is like Christmas.
Only it lasts for 30 days and you give yourself presents in form of an awesome story, intriguing characters and plot twists that will knock you off your feet.
Add to that the amount of snacks I consume each November and a community who will fight for you and build you up when you’re feeling down. It’s pretty much Christmas for a writer.
