National Novel Writing Month is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to novel writing. Participants begin writing on November 1. The goal is to write a 50,000-word (approximately 175-page) novel by 11:59:59 PM on November 30.
I already had about 30,000 written, but my goal was to hit around 80-90,000 so I started counting from November 1st. As of right this moment the total count is at 35,896 (which means 5,896 toward my NaNoWriMo goal!)
So, if I complete the 50,000 goal and finish the novel I should reach my final goal of publishing book 2 by the end of the year! So exciting! Stay tuned for more updates.
