And So It Begins

Today is the official start of NaNoWriMo. I have to admit that when I thought about facing this challenge it seemed incredibly daunting -- 50,000 words in a month's time. But I sat down and figured that even if I only wrote on 25 days out of the month, I'd only need to write 2,000 words a day. I can only write after Gretel goes to bed, but tonight I wrote 2,400 of those words in two hours. That's not too bad -- if I can keep up this pace throughout the month I definitely think I can reach my goal. Time will tell if it remains this doable, but so far, so good. My posts here will definitely be shorter, though, and probably have an awful lot to do with novel writing. Maybe I'll be able to spice it up with other content on the good writing days. Wish me luck!
