This year I plan to unofficially participate in NaNoOWriMo – unofficially because I’ve already started the book. For the last year I’ve been working on two manuscripts at the same time with little success. While my word count has grown significantly on one WIP, the other one has been ignored. Since I’m currently free to write anytime I like, I’m going to take this opportunity to push myself to complete my neglected manuscript by November 30th. I’m dedicated to giving it the old college try and hold off on editing until “The End.”
I’m not one for tracking my word count; I much prefer to concentrate on completing scenes and chapters than stressing over the number of words on the page. So long as I complete 175 pages in November, I’ll have achieved my goal.
If writing a novel in 30 days sounds like a challenge you’re willing to undertake, visit NaNoWriMo to sign up.
Here’s to 30 days and nights of literary abandon!
