Am I insane? Maybe.

So, back in October I signed up for NaNoWriMo. Amazingly enough, I have a plot/story that I think will work. I haven't told any of my friends, because there is a sense of a lot of pressure around trying to do this. Now that I have posted about it, everyone will know. It was killing me not to say anything, but I've been really nervous just thinking about talking about it with anyone. I also put off actually starting to write until today. So far I only have 547 words, so I only have to do what I did tonight slightly less than 100 times in the next 25 days and I will have won. Even if I don't win, I will have a lot written. I'm glad I signed up.

Good luck. Don't let the pressure of it put you off. If you really have a good story, shelve it at the end, then come back in a few months and re-work it.
