NaNoWriMo 2007?????

I'm not sure how I'll be able to do NaNoWriMo 2007.

They say the academics are pretty intense around here, but that's not the main obstacle. Rather, it's the fact that I have to get B up at 6 to get her ready for the bus, which comes a little after 7. That means I'm up by 0530 on a regular day, just to make sure I have enough time for a shower, shave, etc before I start rounding up the youngsters...

I could try getting up at 0430 to write, but I'm not sure that's going to work.

Yes, I've already completed one Boomer Sisters novel this year (The Boomer Sisters In The City), during DaNoWriMo. It's being illustrated as we speak. But I was sort of thinking I'd do NaNoWriMo again anyway, either to do the 4th Boomer Sister book (final BS book?) OR... to do the sword & sorcery novel I've been thinking about for the past year or so.

I'll have a better idea what my schedule will be like by October, when classes start for real and life settles down a bit. But I should really have a plot outline before November. And that means I should pick which book to write. And as I said, at this point, I'm not sure if I'll get to do it at all... (at least not in November...)

Watch this space.

Been debating that myself. I don't know where I'll find the time now that I'm freelancing fairly regularly. Plus I want to finish the edits on last year's NaNoWriMo project. But I've been doing some worldbuilding here and there, so I guess I'm leaning toward a fantasy genre novel this year. I've been kicking around some ideas, but need to get a plot developed by then. I think that would be a fun NaNo project. Maybe your sword and sorcery idea would be a fun change of pace for this November.

I never can manage because my head is too full of junk, but can you write in the evenings?

Haven't managed to do the evening writing thing, because I'm usually pretty tired and there's usually something good on TV for the wife and I to watch... or we're out somewhere.

Mornings and when I'm traveling for work have historically been my prime writing hours - and now it looks like I won't have either for a while. Hmmm...
