To NaNo Or Not To NaNo?
I’ve done NaNoWriMo twice and finished. So I can do it! Although I never edited either of those stories (!)
But November is busy this year. If ‘Im trying to squeeze in 1667 words a day too, my brain might explode!
Then I came across this post It’s Not a Sprint (thanks YA Highway) and decided to embark on my own version of NaNo. So I’ll be starting out at 250 words a day and adding. Maybe I’ll be writing 1667 words by week four, or maybe I’ll still be writing 250 words a day. Either way it’ll be better than my current output of 0!
And, because I like a bit of pressure and I’m interested to see if a brain can actually explode, I’m also doing NaBloPoMo. I miss blogging and this seems a good way to get back to it.
Also inspired by Sarah I am creating a star chart for both. I do like to see progress and I love stickers.
Finally my reward! on the 1st December I’ll be settling down with Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. (which I heard even more fabulous things about last night on Simon Mayo’s BBC2 radio show) and
a huge bar of chocolate.
Good Luck to all of you doing NaNo or some version of it. I am cheering for you!!
