Happy November 1! Greetings from the land of NaNoWriMo, where 300,000 or so novelists and would-be-novels are scrambling to produce 50,000 words in a measly 30 days.
Just exactly how do they — we — intend to do that?
One word at a time.
Or 1,667 words a day.
Or whatever other (new, old, imaginary…) math works out to 50K words by midnight November 30. Oh, yeah, baby. That’s doable. That’s reachable. That’s … Well, that’s just plumb crazy. But it’s still possible. I know, because 36,843 writers did it last year. I was one of them. And I’m going to do it again.
Write on, my fellow Wrimos. Write like the wind!
