 (What I've learnt the last couple of weeks: few things are so damaging for your creativity as a severe cold. Especially when it's one of those brain-draining colds that makes close to anything hard to do, including doing the things you are supposed to do. But anyway....)

I realized a few weeks ago that Nanowrimo would be hard for me to attend this year (for those of you not in the know, you write 50 000 words on a new story in the month of November). I leave for Tokyo on the 14th and I get back on the 30th. You don't have to be a genius to realize that might be hard to do. But then again, this would be my fifth year, and to break off traditions... Looking through my statistics from last year (which was quite a slow one) I came to the conclusion that it might not be impossible, last year I was at 48 000 words on the 13th. So doing the Math I should be able to pull it off. And it would be fun. It's not how I write my most interesting pieces, I admit to that, but it's good opportunity for me to try out new things, write in genres I usually avoid and suchlike. 

Sooo.... I finally decided that I would take the plunge this year, and I might be writing five other stories at the moment (did I mention I'm a compulsive writer?), but I have one that has been laying in the back of my head, waiting for the right moment - a story set in 1970's Sweden with the main character just having finished school and having her last summer break before leaving her small hometown and going to university.

You can be a NaNo Rebel! (i.e. not write a novel), I think I'll do that. If not, you could always try to reach a sizeable number before and then handwrite while on vacation?

Best wishes!
