And...here it is!
I am crazy ambivalent about nano this year. A large part of my hesitation is due to my crash and burn last year, which lead to a two month blogging hiatus. Also, I am wondering how the hell I am going to write when I don't even have time to write right now. Let's call those the cons.
The pros? Well, I am writing my nano project with Kelly (you may call this cheating, but we don't give a fandango). Kelly is a ball of energy, and even when we have no idea what we are doing, we are productive and prolific.
Another pro is that I will finally be challenging myself. It took me a year to take on a challenge...a real challenge. Part of being a writer is to push yourself, right? Well, I have been living a safe distance from the edge. In the words of
Celine Dion Lea Michele, "But what do you say to taking chances, what do you say to jumping off the edge?"
I say, let's go! (Picture me and Nano holding hands and jumping off the edge as Lea Michele sings in the background.)
So you've seen the pros and the cons, what about the project? Kelly and I have been
working on pecking at resuscitating our collaboration project for eight months. As the summer came to a close, we realized it was now or never. And with the wave of energy Nano creates, we decided why not tap into that grid.
And so, here we are: outlining, skyping, typing, and riding the waves, in prep for Nanowrimo 2011!
