NaNo November: Why I Won’t Win NaNoWriMo This Year

Or will I?

What are your excuses for not making time to write/winning?

Here’s my list:

  1. I have two jobs and one is in retail so I’m working 50-60 hours/week
  2. I lose a lot of time driving because Seattle area traffic = black hole of time suck
  3. I have 4 major events in November (Belles of the Ball, a Tuesday all day sales event, Oddmall one weekend, and Bard & Starlett)

Here’s why I WILL win:

  1. I’m extremely stubborn
  2. I like a challenge
  3. I have a schedule for my For the Love of Donuts series
  4. I like to write
  5. I actually have an outline for my NaNo novel

And finally, why I love NaNoWriMo:

  1. I’m writing
  2. I get to meet other writers
  3. Write-ins are hecka awesome!
  4. Novel bragging rights
  5. I’m being highly productive
  6. It helps me finish/start/work on my writing
  7. I go to new places

Not to forget a list about my upcoming NaNo manuscript:

  1. It’s a young adult novel
  2. It’s the third book in the For the Love of Donut books
  3. Nichole and Vanessa are in it
  4. There will be donuts
  5. There will be themes of friendship
  6. It will be set in Sarasota
  7. I’m super excited to write it!
