I think I’m going to do this: National Novel Writing Month, or as it’s more lovingly known in the sphere: NaNoWriMo.

Basically, the point is to write a 50,000 word novel by midnight on November 30 – completely giving yourself away to ‘literary abandon’. That’s 1,667 words a day and I’m already one day behind! Luckily, how much you write is the aim – not what you write. The point is not creating a work of pure genius, but sitting down and writing. Just writing. Commitment is the point.

I got 159 words done at work today. Just to get myself started. 1,508 left for tonight, plus yesterday’s 1,667.
