Or, National Novel Writing Month.
One signs up and commits to trying to write 50,000 words during the month of November. That equates to 1667 words per day.
I've decided to give it a go. Since I was hungover Saturday from a fun-tastic Friday Halloween and didn't write a thing, I had to double up and attempt to get in two days worth of writing today, Sunday.
Somehow, after chugging two cups of coffee, I slugged my way through 3200 words. Now I feel mentally exhausted and a bid post-caffeinated edgy.
But it was fun. I've already started this novel, The Constable of Bridge, but I figured this would be a good way to keep it going.
Wish me luck.
