# Knowing that I want to do something with my writing this year my eldest daughter suggested I take part in NaNoWriMo.

"Big idea" panic and self doubt immediately set in. What would I write about? How could I possibly say 50 thousand words about something?

She replied that "prep doesn't start until October, you've got loads of time."

By golly she's right!

    If you can organize some time everyday itโ€™s real fun! You donโ€™t even have to have a real idea if you should not find anything. Just write, the rest follows ๐Ÿ˜Š Go for it!

    last year I really wanted to take part in NaNoWriMo, I was in a flow. I had an idea in mind. I had started prep, with some stories with the characters and the setting. Just couldnโ€™t close it. I am planning to attempt again this year.

    I think Iโ€™ve got an idea, itโ€™s non-fiction but donโ€™t want to say too much at the moment. Iโ€™ll mull it over for a while and see where I can take it. And if I donโ€™t finish it in a month so what.

    Itโ€™s a fun thing to do! The key is making sure you have a specific daily time set aside to write. Everyone I know that does that generally finishes. My challenge is always a lack of discipline. Either way, finish or not, you always walk away with a huge chunk of your book finished and are able to continue! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I work shifts so it will have to be a set โ€œrelativeโ€ time, probably during my commute.
