I know that it’s not impossible for me to write 50,000 in a month. But in my current situation, where I have to work 8 hours a day, it’s very difficult. And November is about the worst month anyone could have possibly picked for NaNoWriMo. I mean, not everyone has a birthday in November (like me), but pretty much everyone has Thanksgiving. This year, I’m visiting my parents for 4 days for Thanksgiving. So, yeah, NaNoWriMo isn’t going to happen. Just like it doesn’t happen every year for me. At some point, I’m going to figure out a month where I can have my own personal NaNoWriMo.
So even though I’m not going to get to 50,000 words, I’ve been inspired by reading other “on writing” blogs where authors are posting their word counts. That, and I’ve found myself with more free time than I usually do. Not sure how that happened. As such, I’ve managed to get in 3,000 word so far this month (don’t look now! That’s 230 words / day!) … That’s a real banner month for me, and it’s not even half over!
I’m pretty happy with the wanna-be writer thing at this point, though. And I’ve got 2 other blogs that I write, so I feel like I get in some good practice there, even if it’s not “novel” writing. Just gotta get the words out there.
See you in another 4 months!
