Tick Tock

In less than a month, NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) begins. If you've ever fantasized about writing a novel, now's the time to get your rear in gear and finally do it. I started my outline today and hope to have something coherent enough by the end of October to propel me through the month of November.

The goal is to write 50,000 words by the end of the month. My daily goal is 2k a day which gives me a little pad in case I have to miss a day or two during the challenge.

This is my fourth year of doing NaNo and I've had a blast doing it each time. It's harder than it sounds and easier than it sounds at the same time -- and very satisfying once you reach Nov. 30th.

Come on, you know you want to do it.

Here's the link to my personal page.

Very timely post! You've gone and inspired me now. I've been meaning to do this for years, and I think it helps to have buddies running alongside. As long as you don't interrupt me for a chat halfway through... :-)

Here's me:

I love it. And you're right, buddies definitely keep you motivated -- a combination of guilt and competitive spirit takes over.

See you soon!
