After a couple of years break, I am participating in NanoWrimo 2011. The now long-held online tradition sees writers all over the world take on the slightly mad task of writing a 50,000 word novel in the month of November.
I’ve made a good start, pulling over 3600 words in the first two days. Slightly above the required average. I’m not entirely sure how likely I am to finish the whole thing in the time though, with various family commitments this month among other things, but I’ll give it my best shot. In 2008 when I went into it, I’d done 25,000 words after 30 days, but there was enough there that I finished the whole novel just after new year.
That’s the idea, as far as I’m concerned: use this month as a start, and if you finish, great, if not, you’ve got Christmas holidays to get it done still!
The badge on the right will stay there for the month (and beyond if I’m still working on it!) and when they release the word count widgets, I will add one of them there also.
Here we go!
