Other people call it NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month. Participants attempt to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days during the month of November.
That just doesn’t work for me. I’ve been writing on the same novel, Rex Appeal, for the past two NaNoWriMos. And I’m continuing with it again this year. And again I’m expecting I will not “win” by completing 50,000 words in November.
What I am planning instead is the 2nd annual NeedToWriteMo’. The goal is to write every day. Every single day. Fingers on keyboard. Butt in chair.
With luck and persistence I hope to have Rex Appeal done by Christmas.
