Most of us have heard of NaNoWriMo or National Novel Writers Month. In case you don’t know, November is National Novel Writers month. On https://nanowrimo.org, you can join a massive community committed to writing in their quest to reach 50,000 words written for the month. Of course, you can set your own goal. Maybe you only want to write 25,000 words. Maybe you want to write 5000. Your goal is up to you. Most members of the writing community are supportive, kind, and willing to offer respectful advise if it is asked for.
I set my goal for the standard 50,000 words. This is my first dive into the NaNoWriMo pool and I’d like to share updates on my progress periodically with you lovely folks.
REACHED TOTAL FOR NANOWRIMO
REMAINING FOR GOAL
I am completely jazzed about the progress I have made. The feeling of making progress on this book and only occasionally thinking it is crap is completely indescribable.
Today I also had a moment. I have this evil doer, real jackass, that is going to bite the bullet by the end but I still hadn’t given him a name. What struck me today during my shower? Why, I am going to name him after my childhood bully. I could never give that kid what he deserved at the time but I’m going to name this character after him now. Is it stupid? Absolutely. But it will sure make me feel better.
So there is my update from the last couple of days. Hopefully here is to a few more productive days ahead.
