The month of November is known as “National Novel Writing Month,” or “NaNoWriMo,” for short. The goal of NaNoWriMo is to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days.
The early 2000s were a difficult time for me, with my cancer, losing my mother, and then my divorce, and my brain is no longer in any shape to be writing fiction anymore. So I’m going to try to write 50,000 words worth of blog posts (and maybe some other things, like book reviews) this month.
As I write this, it is 7:42 p.m. on November 2 and I have written four blog posts with a total word count of 3,018 words. This does not count this post, which I actually started writing back in October and it has sat in my drafts folder since then. Only these final four sentences were written in November, and they bring my word count to 3,108.
