It’s National Novel Writing Month, and I’ve made it a goal to participate this year. Though I’m a bit behind- the goal is to write 50,000 words by November 30th, which amounts to about 1,667 words a day. So far, it is day 4 and I’ve only written 625 words. Clearly I am right on track.
That said, I’m determined to write every single day, whether I reach the goal or not. If I do, it will be an added bonus. 🙂
This is why I haven’t blogged in the past week or so, as I’ve been mentally preparing the idea for my story. I wanted to have the characters and general plot outlined before I began, but that didn’t happen. Rather, I am learning more about each character as I’m writing, and even after only 625 words, each one is taking his or her own form. I think I prefer this style of writing- it’s as much a mystery to me as it will be to my eventual readers.
Throughout November I will be sharing bits of my novel in blog posts, as well as writing about other things. Aside from NaNoWriMo, it’s also a goal of mine to blog every single remaining day in November, starting today. Hooray for achievable goals and pragmatic dreams!
Are you participaing in NaNoWriMo? What’s your novel about?
