I decided not to tackle NaNoWriMo. I was secretly considering participating this year but, with most of my evenings in the month of October being eaten up by Rocky Horror Show, I didn’t have time to prepare an outline for Jackal. I’ve made the mistake before of writing without an outline. Some people may work fine without one but not me! Also, Russell and I recently decided that we will be vacationing at the end of the month, which would eat up 10 days- a quarter of the time allotted to reach 50K words. Meh, maybe next year.
Good luck and happy writing to those who are participating!
