This is November – the start of the annual NaNoWriMo – the month when authors put all sanity aside and attempt to write a 50,000 word novel in one month. It’s not something I’ve ever thought of doing. Mostly because I do have a life outside of writing – like a full time job and a family.
Okay, technically, it’s only 1667 words a day – every day. And that’s only seven pages – totally doable. I know writers who do double that in a day. But I’m not one of them. Okay, I’ve had days where I did 10,000 in a day. But it’s insane. That was an intense day that I paid for physically for a week afterward.
For those of you who are doing this – I applaud you and I will cheer you on. I wish you all good luck. And maybe… just maybe… I’ll attempt to join you, but not officially. Officially, I’m still in the background. But I can do a few pages a day. Anyone can do that. Right?
