Are you impressed? 2 blog posts in 2 weeks. It's like a record.

So far I've been able to stick to my plan of studying a little each day and writing a little each day. Well, okay, I did nothing yesterday but I've done twice as much today so still on track.

I do have one little issue though. Well, I say little, it's about 50k and takes 30 days and had you asked yesterday I'd have said there was absolutely no way I was getting involved in it this year. Can you guess?
That's right, somehow I'm doing NaNoWriMo again this year. Except not only am I going to be attempting it again, I seem to have accidentally volunteered to assist the ML for my area*. She asked for help and I said I would if she could think of a way that didn't involve me leaving the house, I fully expected her to say she didn't think there was anything. Oh well, not the first time I've accidentally volunteered for something and I doubt it'll be the last, it's a habit I have for not liking to see people get stressed when helping them isn't really going to be that much work. Except, of course, this now means I have to actually 'do' NaNo, which tends to require a plot of some kind, or at least a general idea.
I had been toying with the idea of doing 30 short stories, one for each day but might cut it down to 15 and split my words between that and finishing last years NaNo which is still missing bits we shall see.

Anyone else doing a NaNo novel this year?

*If you have no idea what I'm talking about please go here.
