Another thing that happens in November is Nanowrimo.
That is National Novel Writing Month, wherein you sign up and pledge to write a 50,000 word novel during November.
This is my second year signing up for Nanowrimo and if I complete it, it will be my first time doing that. Last year I made it about 7,000 words in, which is more than 10% but still rather lackluster.
I am pretty determined to finish (or “win” as they say) this time around.
I’ll probably just write the whole thing this weekend, get it out of the way.
But actually, though, 50,000 is a lot of words and I am afraid I might not finish again.
Following through with things is just not a strength of mine (as a “for example” – I bought new pajamas today because Friday is Pajama Day at school, and last Pajama Day my students were all like, “Those are the pajamas you wore LAST Pajama Day” so I NEEDED new pajamas, right? And so the No-buy-vember fail happens on 11/2…except I am going to try to get my sister to reimburse me the cost of my pajamas since she never got me a birthday present, thus un-failing me!)
Anyway – Nanowrimo. I’ll let you know how it goes.
