On November 1st I joined this year's NaNoWriMo. The challenge is to write a novel in 30 days of 50,000 words or more. I was astounded to discover that more than 172,000 people took up the challenge. That's one hundred, seventy-two thousand people! I know many people who join up don't take it seriously, but even if you cut that in half that's an amazing number of people hammering out novels all across the US.
I joined so that I could push myself to get more done on My Life On Fire. It's actually helped me become more productive, and it's been great so far. Let's see how it goes for the next twenty-five days. Tune in once in a while and see. You can keep track of the number of words I've written in the little widget over there to the right of this page. Wish me luck!
