Help...I need to make a decision

Okay people, I have a Day Zero list and on it is to do NaNoWriMo. (National Novel Writing Month for those who don't recognise the acronym).

I have enough time to complete the NaNoWriMo within my thousand days but I had also wanted to get all my things marked off before my next birthday which means I need to it this time around. Problem is I have missed so many Write on Wednesday exercises and I have no idea what I'd write about. Is it bad to start a novel completely plotless?

I need to decide in the next 24 hours. I have always wanted to be a writer but I'm too scared to take a leap of faith. Plus my head has been very messy lately and I'm wondering if I even have the motivation.

Help! Do I make an attempt? Or do I just NaBloPoMo instead? Opinions, please!

Taking a leap of faith is sometimes the very best thing. Who knows where you may end up, but the journey is the important part of the process :) thanks for stopping by the parenting files.

I feel for you E. I'm in the same position having signed up and now I don't know what to do!

Maybe try re-reading some of your old WoW posts and see if inspiration strikes/ There is bound to be the makings of a novel in there.

The prospect of it's quite daunting. Perhaps the trick is to take it one little step at a time and not look ahead too far.

Good luck x

I say go with what you feel most comfortable with.
