WriMo WriMo!

And I’m off! To hit the goal of 50,000 words by 11/30, I need to do at least 1,667 words a day. The folks over at NaNoWriMo recommend completing about 2,000 a day at first, to give yourself a head start. Yesterday I did 2,136. Yippee!

Last year I had trouble getting to 50K and I ended up padding the story a lot. I’m trying to resist this now. Also, since I took that writing class over the summer, I find myself automatically cutting extra words and repititions, and rewriting sentences to make them tighter.

Luckily work is slow this month, or at least manageable, and the chilly weather and early nightfall make me want to stay in and just click-clack away.


  1. After seeing so many bloggers mention this I looked it up. Good luck! I’m not as brave. Plus, sadly, my arm/wrist injury is acting up which means less typing for awhile. :(

  2. i hope you can click-clack your way to 50k. yikes that’s a lot!
