    Being sure of my focus, 2 grumpy old men feuding Christmas tree farmers w/ kids who love each other, or romance of single male and female Christmas tree owners who get together, a shorter straight romance, maybe more marketable but doesn’t interest me as much and I don’t think I can pull off…or want to…

    • Michelle Lim says:

      Landing on a specific focus is important for sure. Go with what you are most passionate about and offers the most opportunity for originality in plot and tons of conflict opportunities. Commit to it and stick to it.

      You can do this! You are an amazing writer!

  2. Encouraging post, Michelle. Wish I were doing NaNo… but just not the right time. Maybe next year!

    I wasn’t going to join at first because I made it last year but haven’t done anything with that story. But I’m going to try one more time and see what happens.
    TIME is my biggest fear. Hosting Thanksgiving and my youngest son will be home from college for the holidays. One of my goals is not to make myself as crazy as I did last year. HA! My poor husband barely survived Nano2011.
    Thanks for all you do, Michelle.

      You are so welcome, Jackie. If you feel that it is too much to do a complete NaNoWriMo, how about doing a half book challenge for yourself for Nano in November and the other half at the beginning of December. If you think you can, go all out. It is about 2500 words a day five days a week for a month to reach 55,000 words. I will be here cheering everyone on. Best Wishes on your NaNoMonth.
