Starting Fresh and Planning Ahead

For NaNoWriMo, it’s better to start fresh. I’m more than happy to take up the challenge, though I’ve noticed a few inherent flaws with my plan, and that is that they include life. Between work, and a social life, I can’t exactly hermit up. Thanksgiving falls in here as well as a few birthdays and the beginnings of Christmas shopping.

That said, I’ve taken most weekends out of my writing plans. Given life, I can expect there will be some days that I won’t write either. Usually I make it to 7-10k words when I attempt this. Ambition drops off quickly, and forcing this novel becomes a chore. So, with that, I estimate at least 2000-2500 words per day will be needed to finish anything. Do I dare try?

I think I do dare, though I’m off to a bad start with 2 birthdays in the first week. I’d better make sure the plans are solid before charging in head first.

    Dare to do it! The worst that can happen is you don’t hit 50k, and if nothing else, at least you are writing however much you can. Plus I really love the NaNo community/support. Its kinds of a no loose situation. 😀
