NaNoWriMo begins today.
I. Am. Stoked.
It's been since June that I've been able to free-write anything, been since last November that I've been able to free-write anything just for the heck of it, been since October 2009 that it wasn't a luxury. Last November whetted my appetite, a taste of what life can be when you write what you're thinking and nothing else. When you write the cliche because you can, when you shrug your shoulders at marketability. When the story is funny - but only to you. When the only person to impress is yourself, because you're the only one who will ever read it.
When the backspace key becomes a non-factor in your life.
When edit becomes a foreign word.
I tasted it last November. Since then, I've been a very good girl and have completed and edited two serious manuscripts. This is my reward.
Sorry Backspace Key...it's been nice knowing you.
Are you doing NaNo? Feel free to add me as a writing buddy - theprincessspy.
