It’s very likely that some people (okay, the ten or so of you who actually read this blog) might be wondering why I haven’t posted much all week. I promise, I’m not ignoring you.
If you’re unfamiliar with NaNoWriMo, the object is to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. Not a polished novel, or even a good novel. Just a novel. And…yeah. Not something I’ve ever done before. So, here I am, about 6,000 words in or so.
I decided that my goal wouldn’t be to get to 50,000. That just sounds daunting. I mean, really? 50,000 words? 30 days? And I also have to do everything else I usually do? Nope, my goal is to finish the story. So even if I don’t get to 50,000 before November 30, and even if I don’t finish the story by then, I will get it done.
For the very curious, and those who are also doing it, I’m on there as wifie29. And yes, I really am writing a young adult novel about penguins. Sort of.
