Another personal test – NaNoWriMo! Or should I do DigiWriMo instead?

An almost 11th hour blog post.

In 2 hours and 14 minutes, NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) will kick off. I feel like giving it a better go this year than I’ve done in the past. Previously, I’ve given up after about three days because I’m a bit too much of a perfectionist to simply write 50,000 words in only 30 days. I think part of the problem was that I had to take an idea and keep it going throughout the month. My ideas sort of ran out of steam, or I just couldn’t figure out where to take them.

A slightly easier alternative, I think, is DigiWriMo, which is Digital Writing Month, also starting tomorrow. The aim of that is to write 50,000 words of online content, not one long novel. I could cover that in blog posts.

So what does everyone think? Bearing in mind that I will hopefully have a job interview to prepare for soon, as I applied for a paediatric band 5 post yesterday, and the OT lead told me interviews would be taking place in the third week of November.)
