I’ve always been writing stupid little stories, creating characters and situations, and never finishing them because, well, they were just for my own personal entertainment. However, now that both boys are in Preschool for a few hours a day, I decided that this would be the perfect time to actually sit down and finish a story that is more than a few hundred words long.
Along comes NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month, challenging would-be writers like myself to complete a 50,000 word novel in the month of November. The mathematical breakdown rounds that out to be 1667 words per day. So I have to write on Fridays, weekends, even on Thanksgiving.
To add some peer pressure to the mix, I will be posting my daily word count to keep me accountable (because I will tell a lie to get out of work in a heart beat.)
Do you have a challenge you need to overcome? Then join in with me! It doesn’t have to be writing, it can be eating right, going to the gym, driving less, or trying to stay on a budget. Challenges are fun. Especially when you win a free t-shirt!
