I have signed up to participate in National Novel Writing Month (NanoWriMo) for the past three years and not once have I completed the challenge. The goal is 50,000 words in 30 days. No small feat but not impossible either. But this year is to be my year! With an average of about 1700 words a day, I got this. I’ve already done 1764 words this morning!
I share this with you as an accountability tool. I'm putting it out there in the universe, November 2016 is the month of writing furiously. No matter how rough my draft, nor shitty my prose, I’m letting the words flow—putting my ego aside and smothering my inner critic. This ain’t going to be pretty, but I am going to do it.
I’ve said my piece. If you are interested in tearing your hair out and driving yourself crazy for a month too, you can learn more about the challenge on the NanoWriMo website.
