Just One Week Until NaNoWriMo

My attempt at 2008’s NaNoWriMo was a miserable failure. Two years later, I think I’m going to try it again and, hopefully, fail better. And no matter what I produce, I’m going to slap these stickers on my manuscript.

via LA Times:

NaNoWriMo is coming!

Exactly one week from today, more than 175,000 intrepid writers will plunge into the month-long scramble to compose a complete novel, known as NaNoWriMo.

The goal: a completed novel of at least 50,000 words before midnight November 30.

To reach that word count, a writer must produce an average of 1,667 words each day of the month — including Thanksgiving. And the day after.

The sacrificies: clean laundry, decaf, sleep, swept floors and all the other domestic and social responsibilities that writers and aspiring writers set aside in order to reach the finish line.
