I’m attempting Nanowrimo again this year. I think this will be my fifth time- including 2 Camp Nanowrimos.
I’ve never gotten passed the 20k mark, that the most words I’ve written for Nanowrimo was last year’s with 13,038. [10k was written in the first week]
I have love-hate relationship with Nanowrimo. I love it because I get to enjoy writing with other people and there’s an excitement and a buzz about it. I hate it? The whole ‘just write’ attitude. There’s people that do it, that just write in November and then don’t do anything all year round.
The reason I’m doing it? I really need to get a manuscript that has been sitting unfinished for years. It’s gone passed the point of an acceptable time-frame. This was the same novel I wrote for last year’s Nanowrimo. I just need to get the words down at the stage, don’t care if they’re not perfect. If I keep going at the rate that I’m going at now, I’ll never write it.
This time around through I’ve listed out the scenes that need to be written and allocated a rough amount of words for each one and they bring me to about 65 – 80k words in total. So, 50k should be a walk in the park. Right?
Here is my profile if you want to buddy up.
