Most of us have heard of NaNoWriMo. 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
While I am immensely enjoying my NaNoWriMo experience, I have hit a bit of a rut. I have found that my story isn’t following my initial outline very well. I have reached a point where if I continue to follow it that my story will cease to make sense. So, my options are to free write/pants it or go back and make some changes so that the outline still at least makes so sense. Honestly, I am probably going to just go full pantser and see where that takes me since I was already a mix of plotter/pantser anyway.
May the NaNoWriMo odds be ever in your favor.
