I Guess I'll Do NaNoWriMo Again

Here is my quick note on NaNoWriMo 2013:
There are a few reason I didn't want to do NaNoWriMo this year. 

1.) I write all year. I don't need NaNoWriMo to motivate me.
2.) I've already done it and I've already won.
3.) I don't have a lot of free time.

I had to make time. I made that time to do some work on my next book. I didn't count the words, but I made serious progress. I eventually noticed the word count, and I'm almost half way there. I might as well keep going. 

I support NaNoWriMo. I like what it is all about. I don't need it, but it helps me get my stories out, and I'm happy to take part in it again. 

Chroniclebooks.com had a good thing to say about not having enough time to write. I've posted it below, with a link to the full article. Enjoy! 
“I’m too busy.”
This is good. You want to be busy when you write the first draft of a novel. Having a limited amount of time helps you be less critical of your prose, which in turn helps you get more writing done and have a better time doing it. Also, when you’re slammed, your novel becomes a refuge from the chaos of the rest of your life—a secret world you get to escape to at the end of a long day.

If you are doing NaNoWriMo, good luck! If it's not for you, I understand. I just hope this year produces some very cool books!
