NaNoWriMo thoughts

Last year I followed other people's progress during NaNoWriMo more than a bit intrigued. I just had made the more or less conscious decision to start developing my writing skills and even the idea of writing 50K words in a month was really frightening to me. Maybe next year, I thought. If I save my free days I could use the whole November for vacation and write.

You know what they say about the best-laid plans...

Taking now a longer vacation is out of question. Far too much work waits. Writing after work may be possible, but if the last weeks are an indication I have to hope for a wonder.

It is an ambigous feeling. The rational part of me says: Are you nuts? Don't you have enough stress at your hands? The other replies: I'm itching to write. Wouldn't it be great to write? Just to see that you can do more than a snippet here and there?

I really don't know. Maybe, if I get myself sorted out I could do NaNoWriMo unofficially, just to boost my word count and to get me over this current phase of non-writing. Writing will stay only my hobby for long years to come (if I don't give up on it) and working my day job will take most of my time so it might be a good thing if I can figure out to do both.
