I just signed up for NaNoWriMo even though I'm writing nonfiction and not a novel. Having a goal of 50,000 words will be good for me and I'm looking forward to the challenge. I did NaNoWriMo back in 2006 I think. I didn't quite make the goal, getting stuck around 30,000 words. November is a challenging month to write in. There's Thanksgiving, of course, for which we're traveling this year. But there's also election day, which I work and right after, I'm going to a conference. So my writing schedule is going to take a big hit. We'll see if I can stick with a plan despite all the setbacks.
