Anticipation – NANOWRIMO

I am so looking forward to November.  I have a lot going on in October but November will mark my second time participating in NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month.

The goal of NaNoWriMo is to write 50,000 words in November.  Last year, despite it being a major election year, I managed to write from November 1st to November 12th and banged out just over 14,000 words.  I don’t know what happened but I could not write after that point in the month.

If I look logically, although I have never found writing to be logical, at the task at hand, I should manage to write about 1670 words a day.  Realistically, I only manage to write on weekdays so I think I need about 2400 words a day based on 21 days in the month that I will write.

Unlike many other people, I have never really planned out my writing.  It just flows and, then, doesn’t.  I did, last night, sketch out a few plots and characters but immediately threw it out.  I did not like what I had put down so wasn’t going to use it.

Readers, if you love to write, check out NaNoWriMo.
