I'm not participating - not properly anyway. Too many school things happen in November. The school year finishes in early December so there's lots to get done this month (including marking of exams, collecting of textbooks, tidying of classrooms, end-of-year meetings, planning for next year...).
BUT I have decided to participate in my own small made-up way so that I have a daily goal just like the rest of you (and I can hopefully get far more words on a page than I otherwise would have!)
500 words a day!
I know, I know. It seems kind of piddly compared to the 1667 all the real NaNoWriMo-ers will be aiming for every day. But it's better than zero :-)
