Gearing Up!

It’s hard for me to believe that in less than 48 hours — LESS THAN 48 hours — NaNoWriMo will have officially started for the 2008 season.

It’s insane!!!! AAAAHHHHH!!!!!!

Okay…. now that I’ve gotten that overwith…

For some reason, this year I’m nervous.  WHY??  I can’t understand this.  After all, I’m doing a relatively easy style novel this year.  It’s all about one person’s journey through some spiritual discoveries, and I planned it so that it would be relatively easy.  There’s no strange plot direction, no weird characters to show up…. none of that at all.  No one dies, or at least I don’t think they do.  Why, then, am I so nervous about all of this?

Beats me.

Well, in two days, I will be meeting some other WriMos in the area, and starting the process of writing at least 2,000 words per day for the next 30 days.  That way, I know I will make my goal of 50,000 words for the entire adventure. If things go as planned, I hope to write double that, or at least 70,000 words. 

We’ll see.

Please keep me in your prayers.  I want to win this year.  I want to receive my certificate that says I came, I wrote, I conquered! 

And keep checking back here, because I will post progress on all that happens with this journey my character is going on.  Should prove interesting.
