Lost Momentum

I was going great guns with NaNoWriMo the first week and then the wheels fell off. I took my Scouts out to camp Saturday and Sunday so no writing got done: Saturday because I was no where near electricity and Sunday because I was tired from Sunday. At least, that’s my story. I did manage to write again Monday and Tuesday (and again today) but the pace of my writing was only about half what it had been.

Ramping Up for NaNoWriMo

I have decided to do NaNoWriMo again this year after a two-year hiatus. “Why?” Simply put, NaNo has always been a great motivator to me. I like to challenge myself and NaNo allows me to do that.

I don’t know that I will beat that this year, but my goals are higher too. I’m going to try for 70,000 words in 30 days. I think I can do it. How about you? Will you be doing NaNoWriMo this year?
