N is for NaNoWriMo

I know that I’m really on the letter M but since my dog Sheeba fell into eternal sleep on Sunday, the only M I can think of is mourning. I need a distraction and what better distraction is there than NaNoWriMo!

NaNoWriMo for those who don’t know is a challenge to write 50 000 words in a month, basically write a whole novel give or take. You can learn more about the challenge here, however I’m in no way affiliated with that website. In fact I don’t even have an account there. I’m just doing this in my own little bubble.

So what does this mean?

It means I’ll try to post the word count of the day on my twitter.

It means I’ll use this challenge to write every day which I usually don’t do during working weeks.

The last time I did this challenge was back in 2012 or something silly like that so it’s very overdue.

It would be kind of nice to finish another novel before 2018 too and if I do this and manage, I would be so proud of myself.

I’ve already written about 4000 words on the project, these words will not be counted towards the challenge.

A piece of advice to myself:

If I write around 1600-1700 words per day I will meet the goal. Just under 2k words isn’t a problem. On those days when I feel like writing more, I will. I doubt I’ll write every day for 30 days so it’s good to build up a buffer on the days I can.

Anybody else doing the challenge?
