Finally. I thought this day would never arrive.
No I’m busy writing WiP4 (the one I wanted to write for months now). I even gave it a name: Don’t Look Back.
How is it going? Well… I’m back to pen and papering. Boy am I out of practice. I haven’t done any serious pen and paper drafting in about six months.
My daily aspiration is somewhere in the 4k range, but I’m not sure I’ll make it yet. I’m probably going to work my way up to it.
Why, you may ask, would I make NaNoWriMo even more challenging?
Well, because, although my exam went well, I never know how the lecturers will mark, so I want to get as much of the novel done as possible in two weeks, since I will only have a week after the second exam.
In short: if my first exam is a cop out, and I can’t kick someone’s ass until I am given a pass, I will need to finish NaNo in 3 weeks. Which is why my safety cushion is so necessary.
So what about you? Are you doing NaNoWriMo this year? If you are and want to buddy up, my NaNo name is iceangel. What’s your strategy to win?
If you’re not NaNo’ing, what are you doing for the month of November?
