I’ve decided to try something new this year: National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo. It happens in November every year. To be designated a winner you need to write 50,000 words between November 1st and November 30th. I’ll be aiming for 2,000 words per day, leaving room for the possibility of a few days off if necessary. There’s a book I’ve been trying to write for a long time but that keeps eluding me, and I’m hoping this intense focus on it for 30 days will finally wrestle it into submission. The plan is that by November 30th I will have a reasonably coherent draft and some relief from this book’s insistent nudging at me to bring it into existence. Just 2 days left to prepare!
