I am a NaNo virgin. So this will be interesting. I kinda like writing historical mash-ups and I really want to try my hand at magical realism. I was inspired by "Like Water for Chocolate."
Not everything I write will be published. Nor should it. I'm learning all the time and I shouldn't torture myself over every little failure and shortcoming. The way I see it, I'm going to live to be 80-something years old, and I need to have FUN every once in a while. Ultimately, writers write. And I can't learn if I don't crash and burn a few times.
So here's to crashing and burning, minions. *raises glass* Happy NaNoWriMo!
