According to my stats online I've written 1446 words to date. At this rate I will finish my 50,000 word novel May 17, 2018. I guess I'd better step it up. I need to write 1943 words a day to finish by November 30th. Whew! Amazing I have set this goal, but I like to aim high. That is how I finished and published Fire Up Your Profile For LifeWork Success, and Vegetable Kids in the Garden.
I'm already writing a novel––my first––and didn't want to start another, so I decided to write a prequel to the scifi story I am working on. Writing this novel will help me develop the background and characters. Who knows it might end up being a novel in itself. When you start writing, you never know where it will take you. Seeing my stats on the NaNoWriMo website is an eye opener as to how much I will need to write each day to finish on a specific date.
NaMoWriMo says today is not too late to start the challenge.
"You, writing a novel, are learning how to build worlds. You, writing a novel, are training to become a serial finisher. You, writing a novel, are exercising the simple faith that stories can help people reach each other, build bridges, and tap into a shared human bond.
So consider making the time. Start that first sentence. You, writing a novel, this November."
