I am participating in my first NaNoWriMo this month. For those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s National Novel Writing Month. It takes place in the full month of November. You are supposed to write 50,000 words in thirty days. Not too much pressure….or so I thought.
I admit, I was very nervous about taking on this task. As you know, I’m dealing with health issues, and never know how I’ll feel from one day to the next. So can I really commit myself to writing this much in just one month? And writing everyday? Why not? I proved last week, when I had one of my wonderful migraine-like headaches that lasts for a few days, that I don’t have to write everyday. As long as I write something on the days I feel well, I’m accomplishing a huge goal, even if I don’t write all 50,000 words. And I’m having fun doing it. You can keep track of my word count, if you’d like, at my NaNoWriMo page: http://www.nanowrimo.org/eng/user/504850
If anyone else reading this is participating, I wish you luck.
