I'm a disabled student in a one-year course to launch me into University. I'm hoping to study creative writing. It's one of few things I can really see myself doing.
When it comes to projects I'm one of those starts-but-doesn't-finish types. I love the process of putting a story together but I always tend to trail off halfway through, get bored, or lose motivation. Most of my written works are short, random stories that really don't make any sense, and were created to make my friends laugh. I've always wanted to write a proper novel. (EDIT: Thanks to NaNo 2010, 2011 and 2012 I've written two and a half novels!)
This is why I started doing NaNoWriMo. I've known about this project for years, but I've never really looked into it before 2010. It wasn't until a friend signed up and wrote a blog about it, that I finally decided to take part. I've been participating ever since and loving it.
I don't mind if I won't always reach the 50k word mark, it has been a wonderful experience before, and I'm sure it will be again and again.
