2013 will be my sixth year participating in Nano. During my first year, I wrote one novel, which I have been unsuccessfully submitting to agents; my second year involved two novels; during 2009 I nearly drove myself mad by writing three 50,000 word novels in thirty days, leading me to write only two during 2010 and 2011, despite telling myself that I only needed to do one each year. Last year (2012), due to extreme circumstances, I only wrote one, but I'm still rather proud of it - and of myself, for achieving my writing goal during a difficult time. I just can't resist the challenge.
