Today it is cold, rainy and windy- very much a soup kind of a day. It is also officially the first day of NaNoWriMo, where the challenge is set to write 50,000 words during the month of November for a novel. Most finished works tend to be nearer 75,000-90,000 words for the genre that I write, but 50,000 is the official word count designation that determines when a novella becomes a novel. Technically, I've completed this challenge before- in terms of writing 50,000 words in a month. I've never officially attempted NaNoWriMo though. My editing is now complete on the work I'd been writing and so the timing coincides perfectly. This year, I am going to participate in NaNoWriMo!
I'll keep a word count meter on the blog here to track progress. So, here it is- all ready to go on day 1!
Best wishes to those of you also participating! Are you a repeat challenger or is this your first time also?
My best to you all,
