NaNoWriMo is Almost Here!

November is just a weekend and one candy filled day away. For me, that means three days to finish outlining, character sketching, and possibly sleeping, because November 1 is NaNoWriMo Day 1!

You see, November is National Novel Writing Month. I signed up for the challenge: 30 days, 50,000 words. That's 1,667 words a day for those of you attempting to do the math in your heads right now. Don't worry if you couldn't. We're writers here, not mathematicians.

At the end, I'll have my first novel and quite possibly a bad case of carpel tunnel. The novel may not be any good, but that's okay. NaNo emphasizes quantity over quality. Editing is for December, as they say.

So, if I don't write here as often as I usually do, you'll know why. And if you forget, just look at that badge over there on the left.
