The month of October I attempted to work at least 2 hours a day on my book. I am happy to say, I exceeded that goal for the month. My word count has gone up, although not significantly because of editing, planning, plotting, outlining, etc, which is not a bad thing. I have some really good stuff, I think. But I want more words on paper and I have a plan for that. This next month is November and that just happens to be NaNoWriMo which stands for National Novel Writing Month. Basically you attempt to write, only write, no editing. I believe the goal to shoot for is 50,000 words.
I am going to participate in NaNoWriMo and for the first time since I’ve written I am not going to edit, nor am I going to reread anything until I make my word count for that day. In case you forgot, November has 30 days and 50,000/30 = 1666.6666666. I have to make this word count of 1667 every day. A lot of people use this to write a completely new novel. I am going to add to my existing novel. If I am able to follow through with this, I will essentially have my draft done. Wish me luck!
