lavenderbard: (pic#4042576)

The question seems to be being asked everywhere, but answering it always feels like I’m raining on someone’s parade, so I guess I’ll answer it in my own space instead of theirs: No, I will not be participating in NaNoWriMo.

The only possible benefit I could see it having for me, is that it would prevent me from feeling quite so lonely, when the activity on most of the online communities I participate in goes down to almost nothing for the entire month. That never seems to me like a good enough reason to sign up.

Instead, I’m going to hope that my health will be sufficiently good to allow me to be too busy to care that there’s nobody around to talk to. ::crosses fingers::

Having done NaNo last year, I can say it's an interesting experiment, but it's not for everyone. Heck, it's not even for every book by someone it is for.

That said, I'm not doing it either. Perhaps some day I'll get around to posting about why. (The fact that if NaNo's not for you, participating may actually make you feel more lonely is a large part.)

I'm doing it halfheartedly, because I have an actual preexisting thing due; working on this other thing during NaNo is mostly just for fun, and I am not going to finish it (I mean, great if I could, but I won't have the energy). I've attempted NaNos before and the timing has never worked out in my life. Ah well.
