I may do that…

This month is the second time I’m participating in NaNoWriMo. For those who don’t know, or don’t feel like clicking the nifty link I provided, the goal of those participating in NaNo is to write 50,000 words (or a small novel) in one month.

That’s about 1,667 words a day.

That’s a lot of writing.

I was doing pretty good the first couple of days, averaging about 2,000 words a day. Right now, I’m sitting at about 6,700 words when I need to be at about 8,335 or so to keep on pace for the 50,000. My goal for today is to get to 10,000 so I can be ahead.

For some strange reason, I don’t feel the pressure I did last year. The writing this year is a LOT easier. I have no idea why. I think part of it is I already did it, and I know I can do it. So I’m not completely pressed if I don’t hit the 50K mark. I’m still going to try, though.

I think next year, though, I’m going to do something different. The Lesley is doing the NaBloPoMo in lieu of the NaNoWriMo. I may do that. Not so damn time intensive.
