In November, there are a bunch of us crazy writers who participate in a 50,000 word challenge… actually there are thousands of us. I’ve done it for the last four years. Now that I head into my fifth year, I’m pleased to announce that I’m off to a great start this year.
I have written the most words ever by this early on day two. I’m at 4820 right now, so I’m feeling good. I think I notice a huge difference in my writing since I have a detailed outline this year. It’s very helpful to have a map of where I’m going. Imagine that…. what a unique thought. But, seriously, it has eliminated those long pauses where I would sit with my fingers poised over the keys waiting for inspiration to strike.
Rather than a regular blog post today, I just thought I’d give a little update on my experience of #NaNoWriMo. If you’re participating in the National Novel Writing Month challenge, please make a comment and tell us how you’re doing.
Have a great day of writing.
