So, who’s in?
Last year, in 2006, I didn’t officially do NaNo; instead, I tried adding to my incomplete NaNo from 2005. I didn’t get terribly far with that. In 2005, I actually started a new story for NaNo, but petered out halfway through November. In 2004, I wrote on a previous story, but didn’t officially do NaNo. This will be my first year actually successfully “winning” NaNoWriMo.
(Like my positive attitude? Me, too.)
I have 1800 words written for my first day. I’ve figured that if I can write six pages a day, with how I have Word set up, I should get between 1700 and 2000 words per day, which should get me to the finish line in plenty of time. It also makes it easier for me to break things into 2000-word chapters, so I can finish one complete thought in one sitting. That’s going to make the month a lot easier to swallow, I think. My plan is to write several different characters’ stories, and tie them up at the end into one big overarching story of how things work in one particular aspect of my future society.
So, again I put out the call: who’s in?
