Three years ago I participated in my first NANOWRIMO challenge.
National Novel Writing Month; once a month every year thousands of aspiring authors spend their November pouring out their creative thoughts into a novel. 50,000 words in a month sounds crazy but it's not impossible.
In 2008 I reached 25,000. In 2009 and 2010 I reached the goal and became an official NANOWRIMO winner. I have two certificates to prove it.
Once again this year I have joined those thousands of writers to face off against 50,000 words.
To hit the goal a person must write at least 1667 words a day. My goal is to get 1700 words a day. So far I'm doing pretty well. But it's only day five. The excitement is still there.
When week two ends we'll see again.
Somehow between work, night class and all those other things I have to do I find time to abuse my keyboard and pound out those words.
Until next time,
The Farmer's Daughter
