The Friday Five

This week's Friday Five:
Five reasons I'm contemplating doing the NaNoWriMo in November.
1. I'm insane.
2. The participant badge has a cool Viking hat on it this year and I'm all about the Viking hat.
3. I have a 50000 word novel I want to complete before Christmas.
4. It would give me a whole month to finish plotting the novel before I had to actually start writing it.
5. I'm insane.
How about you? Ever tried NaNo? Ever heard of NaNo? Wanna Play?


  1. That IS a cool icon to win. I did it one year and wrote the worst drivel I've ever read. The only likeable character died about halfway through. Very lame. Not trying that again!

  2. We're doing our own "NaNo" in my local group this month. Most of us have tried doing it in November, but with Thanksgiving and getting ready for Christmas, it always ends up being a bust. So we chose to do it a month early, especially since several of us came home from conference fired up and ready to get to work on our WIPs.

  3. That is one wicked badge. Maybe I'll pick up Spurred again which I started last year during NaNo and then followed the no part.

  4. Are you insane? Just kidding, have fun!
