My first NaNoWriMo was a wild ride.
I’d heard about this challenge from a friend. They weren’t doing it that year; all my questions as to why not were met with hollow laughter.
I decided to give it a try, and do it all by myself. I didn’t join the website, thinking it would just upset me if the Internet recorded my early failure for the posterity. I didn’t think I needed a writing buddy, or any kind of community support. All I needed was write 1667 words a day for a month. Easy.
