Despite what I said in my last post, I have decided to participate in National Novel Writing Month 2014, better known as NaNoWriMo.
I must be crazy to want to do this, but I really feel like I can. I feel like I can at least get close. I want to actually feel what it’s like to try and take on the crazy task of getting 50,000 words in just 30 days. It’s crazy, but I feel like I can do it.
I’m not quite sure how that’ll go over with school and work yet. Today and tomorrow I’ll be finding that out. Maybe I’ll try to stay at least a day ahead. I know I am already.
To get 50,000 words in 30 days, you have to write about 1,667 words a day. It’s crazy, believe me. It doesn’t seem to be too hard, though. I already have almost 7,000 words!
I’m sure I’ll be able to do it if I can stay a day ahead. I won’t be able to write late tonight like I’ve been doing because I have to be up at the time I’ve been going to bed these last couple nights. Hopefully, I can get enough done during the day so I’m not playing catch up with my schedule late tomorrow night.
I will try to update you every Monday about NaNoWriMo. I’ll let you know how the progress is coming along.
Are you participating? Feel free to let me know in the comments!
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to be off and get to writing. Happy NaNoWriMo, everyone!
