Now? It's nearing the end of October. There's approximately 8 days left until this bad boy kicks off and I am in a tizzy. A tizzy of epic proportions.
What's NaNoWriMo, you ask? Oh, it's just a writing challenge. A month long writing challenge. How much do you have to write?
50,000 words. It's about the length of a novella.
Which averages out to about 2000 words a day.
I say 2000 because it eventually creates a buffer I will inevitably need when the house comes crashing down around my ears for the simple reason that I focused on something other than the family for a little bit.
Easy? When you've got two kids, two dogs and a household to run? Not in the least. But I'm getting there. You see, I acquired a secret weapon to help with this year's NaNo efforts.
I'm going oldschool, baby.
