**Just realized I never hit publish on the NaNoWriMo post I wrote at the beginning of the month! That’s what I get for blogging on the run. Better late than never, and I figured I should share this before I posted my NaNoWriMo wrap up. Spoiler alert: I did get to 50k!
November 3, 2016
Sorry I’m late! I do have a good excuse, though, since I’ve been busy cranking out 3000+ words a day. Crazy! Today, I’ve been busy driving around running errands, and it got me out of my book world enough that I finally remembered I’d forgotten to write a NaNoWriMo post. So…
Happy National Novel Writing Month!!
First, a confession: I’m not officially doing NaNoWriMo this year. I’m in the middle of writing a project that’s been in the making for years. One of NaNo’s official rules is you can’t have any prose written before November 1st, so I can’t do my current project for NaNoWriMo. But, with such a significant project underway, I didn’t want to stop and take on something new, even if it would be relatively small.
No official WriMo-ing for me this year.
But! But… I am unofficially doing NaNoWriMo. This month, I’ve set a goal of writing 50,000 new words in my current novel. I’m also going with the standard NaNo minimum daily word count of 1667 words a day. So far, it’s going really well. In three days, I cracked the 10K mark, so I’m already 20% of the way there!
I’ll try to remember to post updates as I go, but lately I’ve gotten so absorbed in my writing that I can’t make any promises. Good luck to my fellow Wrimos out there!
