November 1, 2009, I start my yearly odyssey into the insane world of NaNoWriMo.
Pray for me! I need all the help I can get.
50,000 words in 30 days. That works out to be 1,666.7 words each day. Okay, I’ll round up, 1,667 words per day. In real life that is 3 and a quarter single space pages and change a day.
Every November I start with a clean Word file and go forth. This year is different. Different I tell you!
How you ask?
Well, I have a Novel in progress. A plan in place. Characters developed. And Magik run amok! I won’t count what I’ve written so far, which is significant. I hope this is my push to finish the manuscript, or at least see the finish line.
I’ll make sacrifices to whichever Creative muse I must to see this through. Chocolate, Diet Dr. Pepper, Family (if they get in my way). With my loyal pooch at my side, my literary feline editing as I go. I’m ready.
