Today is the start of NaNoWriMo, the National Novel Writing Month. The month of writing 50,000 words. The month of insanity. By the time you read this, I will have already begun my NaNo Journey. My plan is to get up at 4:00 a.m. every morning to accomplish the necessary 1667 words per day. We shall see if I can keep that schedule in place.
You see, I am aging, and I find that I really need a good nights sleep to function in the “nice” zone. Too little sleep and the cranky pants come out. So…here’s to going to bed early and keeping a smile on my face.
Don’t be expecting any great blog posts, because it will most likely be updates on my progress. My ups and downs. My plot surprises and writer’s block (gasp…surely not!). My success, for sure! Check out my Word Count Widget in the side bar to check my progress.
Wish me luck! (and alot of stamina and energy!)
***Update: I wrote 1766 words this morning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I feel good, da-na-na-na-na-na-na…like I knew that I would, da-na-na-na-na-na-na!!! So good! Now, to keep that good feel all day when I konk out this afternoon. Oh wait…I’ve got tons of candy to keep me on a sugar high. Just kidding. 😉
