National Novel Writing Month (or Dani’s Totally Insane Mission)


OK, faithful blog readers, here’s my latest self-torture scheme:

I want to write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November, joining a bunch of other crazies in a 30 day challenge of literary abandon known across the interwebs as NaNoWriMo.

Last night was Day 2, and I didn’t quite make my word count goal for the day (3,203), but I shamelessly blame Anthony for turning on “Iron Man” before I was done writing for the night. And seriously, who can concentrate when Robert Downey Jr. is being his arrogant, sexy self right in your very own living room?

*Ahem.* First excuse out of the way.

Here’s where I need you, your comments, quips, encouragement, and outright mockery (Christopher, Uncle Rusty, I’m talking to you) to get me through this month. Throughout the month, feel free to check in on me (I’ll post nightly word counts on Facebook and Twitter, with my weekly totals going up on this blog Saturday night), but don’t expect much response from me until December 1st.

Here’s my daily word count goals:

1 1667 11 18337 21 35007
2 3334 12 20004 22 3667
3 5001 13 21671 23 38341
4 6668 14 23338 24 40008
5 8335 15 25005 25 41675
6 10002 16 26672 26 43342
7 11669 17 28339 27 45009
8 13336 18 30006 28 46676
9 15003 19 31673 29 48343
10 16670 20 33340 30 50000 +
