NaNo Is Now

It’s November 1, time to herald the start of National Novel Writing Month, also known as NaNoWriMo! The idea is to write like the wind all month and complete a 50,000-word novel in 30 days. Or 50,000 words of a longer novel.

I am a NaNo Rebel this year, as I so often am. That means I’m stretching the rules to fit my own situation. Instead of starting to write a new novel today, I will be using this month to push ahead in an effort to finish the book I’ve been working on for months. In fact, I wrote my first outline for it as my NaNo Rebel project for NaNo 2020. That outline has gone through many changes since then, and I have a good portion of the book written. But I’ve been lurching forward with it in fits and starts, and I need to be more consistent with adding words to the page (or file).

I jumped in at midnight and had more than 400 words written by 1 am. That’s not exactly write-like-the-wind momentum, but it is 400 more words than I had when the calendar turned to November.

Stay tuned for progress reports.
