#nanowrimo 2017

I’ve heard about this, the National Novel Writing Month, but never gave it much thought.  That’s different this year.  I’ve decided to give it a shot.

The goal of NaNoWriMo is to write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November.  That’s 1,667 words a day.  Yep, that’s a lot.  More than I’ve ever been able to do before but that’s part of the challenge with this.  I need a kick in the butt now and then.  I’m way behind on the next Taleweaver’s Song book and way behind on everything else that I want to do.  This will be a way of locking my tendency to procrastinate away.

I find that I do my best work under pressure and I HATE (with a passion) missing deadlines.  At work, I tend to find a way to make the project happen under the deadlines and I can see that happening here.

Now to just figure out what project to do.  Use it to finish up The Orc Plains (which should clock in around 70k+ when done) or do something else?  Something just for #nanowrimo?

I have until the end of October to figure it out.  The pressure is starting early.
