Someone talk me out of this. Please. I'm pondering putting my toe back in the NaNo pond this year.

I successfully completed NaNo for five years straight (2005-2009 inclusive) and stressed out every year I did it. The stress was worse every year I did it.

November is a bad month for me to do this, however. We're hosting Thanksgiving at our house, first time as a married couple. First time in almost 10 years at my house, with needing to figure logistics for 10 people here. The natal celebration happens multiple times during the month for different family and friends. Add to that the possibility of starting a new position at my job and things just look down right overwhelming.

And yet...

I've got the start of an Urban fantasy idea, with maybe a main character, but no real through line for the story. It's very sketchy and I'm not sure it would get me 50,000 words from it.

Brain go wonky. Talk me out of this...
