Thing I miss during NaNo

Day three of NaNoWriMo.
First of all, wow I forgot how hard this was going to be. I took last year off so I haven't done NaNo since 2008. I am getting back into NaNo shape and carrying my notebook around for when I am away from my computer. But so far this month's novel is fun with a fun cast of characters.

But it is day three and I feel like it is important for me to talk about what I miss most during NaNo. See normally I am a voracious reader. Whenever I set off to do NaNo I don't get to read nearly as much as I usually do because I'm writing. But I miss reading. Already three days into NaNo and I feel like I've broken up with the library. But then I remember that it is just temporary and that once I get farther along in the process I may be able to read a little bit.

Reading is definitely something I can't seem to do much, also, when I'm devoting all my free time to writing. I do hope you'll be able to find more free time to read when you've written more!

That's very true! I have a whole book to read in time for a book club at the end of November - no idea how I'm going to find the time to fit it in!
We should name December NaBoReaMo (National Book Reading Month) to make up for it!

There should totally be a NaBoReMo. That would be awesome

Each year NaNo lets me miss college. I miss the creative encouragement. I miss living in community of so many different people, but living in community of encouraged creativity I once had. And I agree-- NaBoReMo would be a spectacular Event to create.
