I am just over 9,000 words away from meeting my adjusted Camp NaNo goal and it… doesn’t… look… good.
Unless I can write half of that today, in under 3 hours while multitasking some actual work stuff, I won’t make it.
So the question is: Readjust that goal again or take the fail and know that when my children get older I WILL have more time for writing again?
**UPDATE**: I wrote 4,339 words today which is almost half! This race ain’t over yet!
Ok, Eda, here we go! Your challenge: write 1,000 words per day for 30 days.
This is my #NaNoPrep, friends. I want to finish the manuscript I’m writing before challenging myself to write a brand new one, faster and publicly. I’m about half-way through, I have a good idea of what’s going to happen and how it’s going to end, and I want to take a good long break once I’m done before I go back and start editing. The timing, in that sense, is perfect.
That means that I won’t actually be doing much in the way of preparing for National Novel Writing Month. I will not be filling in character sheets or outlining or doing world-building exercises. As of right now, I have no idea what my NaNoWriMo story will be. I’ve got a notebook full of ideas. I’ll start there… in 30 days, when my current WIP is finished.
Ambitious? Yes. Doable? Probably not. Gonna try it anyway? YEAH!
