NaNoWriMo coming to a close

Saturday November 27, 2010 | By Hieronymus Hawkes | Uncategorized

Only 4 days left on NaNoWriMo.  It’s been an interesting experience.  I’ve learned that I am only good for a couple of thousand words a day no matter how much time I set aside.  I don’t have a good answer as to why, except that maybe I’m easily distracted.  I will have a different plan for next year.  This year I have been almost perpetually behind the curve.  I started out just over the line for the first week, then fell back and have been trying to catch up ever since. 

I have less than 8,ooo words to go, so I should be able to do it and I’m not close to finishing the story.  That’s ok, I just wanted to get a leg up on the story, so I would have something to work on after I finish Vim Dicare and the editing thereof.

I think I will try again next year, I don’t think I’ve been too horrible to my family during this time.  Next year the plan will be to get as far out in front early on as I possibly can.  I am also hoping that doing this for 30 days will create a new habit of writing, that will propel me to finishing the first novel. 

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

I would love to hear from you!
