NaNoWriMo: National Novel Writing Month (Nano)

A few days ago I started NaNoWriMo: http://nanowrimo.org/participants/robert-run. the idea is to write 50,000 words of a novel in one month. I am on pace to finish on Nov.22. I have found that doing a public announcement, with accountability and a group of others is the best way to actually follow through. if you go to that link you can learn more and read an excerpt.

I have had this thing outlined, the character sketches, locations and about 3.5K words done for a while, and for most writers, we are not so keen about our work, as in, never satisfied, so just powering through it is  as good a strategy as any. Then there were  other projects that seemed like a nice diversion, like Hank Rally, and becoming more involved in my virtual assistant work to increase cash flow.

Right now I am at 5780 words, and you are welcome to follow my progress.

I also want to take a moment to thank, and encourage my writing buddies at “NaNo”:

Because we are bugging and nagging and trying to keep each other on track.

Part of my progress going forward includes updating this blog every morning. So let’s see if I can be true to myself and my buddies.

While you are at it you can check out The Day of Focused Moments.
