Reasons to participate in NaNoWriMo

  1. Kickstart my creativity. I’ve been stuck in self-doubt and self-editor mode
  2. Step out of my comfort zone.
  3. Have to make some creative decisions
  4. Practice
  5. Face my fear of not succeeding because I haven’t succeeded at either Camp NaNoWriMo event this year
  6. Practice – yes, it’s so important I’m listing it twice
  7. I have time
  8. I have ideas
  9. If I’m going to be a writer I need to find the time, energy, and focus to write, somewhere, somehow.
  10. Have a deadline (the whole point of NaNoWriMo)

Does that mean I should go for it? hmmm. I think I’m leaning towards yes. Reasons to not participate in NaNoWriMo are basically one large word, followed by a few smaller words.
Health. Sanity. Stress

Nerd, wife, knitter, writer, cat mom, and comic book reader w/masters of science in Applied Sociology. I have histamine intolerance, lots of food allergies and sensitivities - including gluten. And I have multiple sclerosis fibromyalgia, asthma, drug allergies, and migraines. Basically, I have a collection of invisible chronic health problems. I don't just survive these things, but sometimes I do hate them because I see doctors so often that keeping healthy and staying full time employed is currently impossible.
