November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). This is somthing I’ve been wanting to do for a long time, and I’m finally doing it. I have been wanting to for a very long time, but work tents to eat it up, so to say.
So, what’s different this year, you might ask. Well, I have been mad enough to take four weeks off work. Unpaid. Simply to write. So, that’s what I’m doing. Come 30 November, I will have a novel of 50 000 words. I’m well on my way, but there’s still a lot to do.
I am currently trying to write 2 000 – 3 000 words every day. This leaves space for bad days. Like last Wednesday, when the day was filled with bad news, a migrain attack, and some other blahness. I managed only 500 or so words. Fortunately, I had had a couple of other days with about 3 000 words, so it was okay. There will be good days, and there will be bad days. It’s just as well to write more on good days.
Are YOU doing NaNoWriMo this year?
