I hope you are enjoying a really brisk East Coast morning, or beautiful weather wherever you are. Though, if you are stuck inside you may have the advantage today as November 1 is officially the first day of National Novel Writing Month. For those who are participating, your goal is 1,667 words per day for the next 30 days!
If you’ve never written that many words at one time, don’t worry. Break up your writing day. Do 400 before your first cup of coffee, another 400 after you finish your morning routine (whatever that is), another 400 during your lunch hour and the remaining 467 words or so after dinner.
Don’t worry about getting your scenes and characters right, just write! Have fun! And, if you’re doing NaNoWriMo, leave a comment or send an email. Why are you pushing yourself to write this month? What are you giving up to make writing a priority for November?
