1 November 2010
The month when thousands of aspiring writers commit to coughing up 50,000 words that will hopefully, at some point, comprise a novel. I signed up again this year, because while I was pounding the pavement training for the Susan G. Komen 3 Day, I found a story brewing inside my head, and began to mentally write it.
I took notes, horrible notes, with the idea that when the Walk was over, I would start working on the book.
And then I remembered NaNo, and figured why the hell not? Use November as an enforced springboard into getting the thing started. I know I can do 50K in a month; hell, when I was working on The King and Queen of Perfect Normal I had a 12K day (I don't recommend this...your fingers really hurt at the end of the day...) If I write 2000 words a day, I'll be well over the 50K by the end of the month.
So here we are at noon on November 1st, and I have written...nothing.
(I probably write about NaNo Every year...still, here's my previous advice about NaNo)
In a nutshell: get all Nike on the NaNo vibe, and Just Do It...
