To NaNo or Not to NaNo

As November draws ever closer I wonder if I should participate in the National Novel Writing Month, known as NaNoWriMo to the writing fools who join in!

I've been a NaNoWriMo'er since 2004. It's a fun event and the energy you see on the forums is amazing. Meeting some of the other local Nano's was a new experience in 2005.

I haven't completed a 50,000 word novel in a month yet, but giving it a shot is challenging and fun. I think I will have to skip Nano this year for two reasons. First, I'm five chapters into my current novel and I don't want to set it aside to focus on an exercise like the Nano. Second, I'm on a family vacation for two weeks in November. My writing time will be quite limited.

But, for all those gearing up, doing research, scoping out the coffee shops and sharpening the pencils - I will be cheering for you, and likely lurking in the forums.
