I may do that…

This month is the second time I’m participating in NaNoWriMo. For those who don’t know, or don’t feel like clicking the nifty link I provided, the goal of those participating in NaNo is to write 50,000 words (or a small novel) in one month.

That’s about 1,667 words a day.

That’s a lot of writing.

I was doing pretty good the first couple of days, averaging about 2,000 words a day. Right now, I’m sitting at about 6,700 words when I need to be at about 8,335 or so to keep on pace for the 50,000. My goal for today is to get to 10,000 so I can be ahead.

For some strange reason, I don’t feel the pressure I did last year. The writing this year is a LOT easier. I have no idea why. I think part of it is I already did it, and I know I can do it. So I’m not completely pressed if I don’t hit the 50K mark. I’m still going to try, though.

I think next year, though, I’m going to do something different. The Lesley is doing the NaBloPoMo in lieu of the NaNoWriMo. I may do that. Not so damn time intensive.

Cool! Where’s the link to your nanowrimo site? You only gave the general one.


Here! Are you doing it, too? You can be my buddy!

2000 more words and I’m done for tonight! :yay:

I really would like to write a novel eventually, but for now I’m enjoying NaBloPoMo. You’re right — much less pressure than NaNoWriMo.

I’m also doing NaKniSweMo or National Knit a Sweater Month. If you want to do that next year, I’d be happy to show you how to knit before then. 😆


Your ‘here’ doesn’t link. Was that deliberate? Anyhow, that’s fine as I found your profile on the nanowrimo page. The excerpt is good. Best wishes for finishing.

I’m focussed on other things this month, but it sounds like a great project. Go Stewie! :yay: :yay:


i can’t tell you how many times I’ve resolved to write at least 1,000 words a day … and then Football comes on. I need to work on Discipline. Or the adult ADD. Or both.
