National Novel Writing Month or Nanowrimo is about 3 weeks away. For a change I am actually preparing a month early. So by the time November 1st I'll have everything from my idea to my supplies to my motivation built up.
This is my 4th year attempting Nanowrimo and I hope I will actually be able to finish it this year! The best of done is about 20% of the goal.
For those of you who aren't familiar with Nanowrimo it's a month long (November) challenge where the participants attempt to write 50,000 words. That's an average of 1,667 words a day! Which may not seem like a lot but it is. Mix in everything else you go through on a day to day basis and it can get hectic.
Sadly I'll be moving around the end of this month/early November so that's really going to add some craziness to the mix. Plus Thanksgiving will make work even crazier. I suppose I could try to write a bit more than the daily goal at the beginning of the month in case I don't get much of a chance to write around the holiday.
I'll try to make frequent updates on here. Perhaps my daily word count. As another way to keep myself motivated.
If anyone reading is also participating in Nanowrimo please feel free to comment or email. We could support each other! Good luck!
