Hey guys! I don’t know if I’ll send a report every day, but I thought I’d get one out tonight. This is the first day of National Novel Writing Month and I decided to give it a try this year. The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel in one month. I’ve actually bumped my goal up to 60K, just because I think the story I have in mind is gonna take more words to tell. Is it possible? Heck if I know, but I’m eager to find out.
Here’s my stats at the end of day one. Officially, I’ve got 5600 words, but that’s kind of cheating. I am leveraging about 4500 words of a test piece I wrote a year ago, so it’s not like I wrote all that today. Today, I had to finish up my third Conway report novel and send it off to the editor, which ate up a good chunk of the morning.
Anyhow, the game is on. Wish me luck!
