NaNoWriMo - an experiment

I have decided to participate in NaNoWriMo.  My experiment is two-fold.  

1) I have always wanted to try my hand at writing a story, well more like finishing a story.  I have started plenty.

2) To get a better understanding of what my favorite authors go through when writing,  I am hoping that this will help with my "I don't have any patience for waiting - I want that next book now." syndrome.  I get quite cranky about this and I figure experiencing what they go through to write will help.

I am not looking to create a masterpiece that some publisher can't wait to publish.  I am not looking for anything polished enough for anyone but my little sister to read.  I just want to experience the thrill of putting words to paper and finishing something.

So thus I begin my NaNoWriMo experience,  I will most certainly keep you all posted.



~Sincerely, the professional reader.

This is my first time doing NaNoWriMo. I know I won't hit a 1,000 words a day, but I figure as long it gets me into the habit of writing, I'm happy. :)
