I’ve enjoyed participating in National Novel Writing Month for the past three years. Writing 50,000 words in a single month is a big deal, and a great motivation! But I’m not doing it this year.
Instead, I started out 2021 operating on a similar pattern to NaNoWriMo for the entire year!
My goal for this year is 500,000 words written. As of the start of November, I’m over 409,000. I have a little less than 92,000 words to go.
So I might actually write 50,000 words in November, or I might not. I don’t have to, and it would add another layer of goals/stress on top of what I’m already doing.
Does that make 2021 NaNoWriYe? No, because I’ve written more than one novel, I guess.
Anyway, I’m writing every day, and you get to read it when it’s all done. That’s what matters, right?
