So November is NaNoWriMo (or National Write a Book in a Month) where participants write 50,000 words on a new novel.
Because of the family and time commitments that I have right now, I’m unable to participate (and probably won’t until my kids are much older,) but I still like the idea of working for a month and setting goals that work for me.
So, I’m going to do a mini-NaNoWriMo and call it JuCanWriMo (JulieCanWriteMore). (Doesn't that sound motivating?) I want to set a goal to write 18,000 words this month. And while that sounds like a lot for me, (okay, a TON!) I broke it down so it won’t seem overwhelming.
It’s 4200 words a week.
Or 600 words a day.
When I put it that way, it seems more manageable and doable for someone like me.
I hope you’ll join me and put your goal count in the comments so we can check in with each other every Wednesday on how we’re doing.
So, for this week, I’m not going to post my word count since it had some October in it (but I did really well!) and I’m going to start counting from yesterday.
I think this is going to be fun!
