Hi all! I’m actually back into the blogging groove once again, which I’m pretty happy about. Today’s post isn’t going to be terribly long, but I’m going to just talk about my plans for NaNoWriMo this year.
For those who might not know what NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month for long) is, it’s where scads of people across the world try to write 50,000 words during the month of November. That’s 1,667 words per day. I’ve decided to do “Reverse” NaNoWriMo this year, meaning I start the month out writing lots of words (3346, to be exact), and ideally I end the last day of the month writing only one. Yes, you read that right: one word.
I have to be honest, I didn’t come up with this plan. It was linked to on Twitter by NaNoWriMo, and it’s over at a blog called The Crazed Mom. [Here is the URL with details: http://crazedmom.com/reverse-nanowrimo/].
I think that it’ll be a great way for me to start on this year’s project, as the end of the month looks like it might be crazier than the beginning of the month.
I should be keeping y’all updated at least on a weekly basis as to how I’m doing. By Saturday the 2nd, I should be at 6,562 words, for the week ending on the 9th I should have 19,297, the next week I should have 13,673, 8,047 by the 23rd and only 2,421 words for the final week of the month!
