Despite the fact that I still haven't edited the first draft of last year's novel, I'm doing National Novel Writing Month again.
The main impetus for committing to 50,000 words in a month is my desktop computer. It's really old, and one day will no longer work. The printer doesn't, and the operating system is so old I can't go online. Meanwhile, I have first drafts of several stories for a Young Adult mystery & horror anthology on it, plus rather detailed story notes for more. Like, way more detailed notes than I realized. If that computer dies, I will have lost nearly 15,000 words of pretty decent stories.
It will also be nice to do a NaNo that isn't completely cheating. While four stories will be rewrites, there will be at least three new ones, and one is a very challenging concept for me. I might even make the 50k goal.
So, fancy cooking and blog posts will be my reward if I manage to get ahead on the word count. Or really want cookies. I keep forgetting it takes less time to make a batch than to run down to the store for some.
