Because what else do I have to do when I'm 34-38w pregnant than write a 50,000 word novel?

Seriously, I am going to try my best to do it -- I think it's going to be fun in a way, something just for ME before the baby is born! Also, it's challenging and difficult, just like laboring and giving birth. I see a lot of comparisons.

Hopefully it will remind me that all the baby really needs are boobs, diapers (although I'm planning to EC) and some clothes, and stressing for the last few weeks of pregnancy is NOT going to change anything.

So I'm going to do something totally un-baby-related instead!

Wow - that does sound like quite the challenge.

I'm a non-fiction writer myself, but maybe I'll take the spirit of the idea and try to crank out a bit more of the book I'm starting with a little less obsessive editing than usual next month.

I plan to do it, and so does my 12yo. I'm going in with a "We'll see what happens" kind of attitude, b/c I know I'm going to have difficulty focusing. Plus, I'm also more comfortable with non-fiction writing. My hope is that this will at least force me to write out the bones of the story I've had in my head for years, then maybe I'll get around to working on the meat at a later date!

My husband, my two oldest, and I are all doing it! We love NaNoWriMo!
I will start a day or two late this year as we have out of town company staying with us for a week so I won't get a chance to start until they leave. I have been brainstorming though, so I think I am ready......... I never finished last year.
