Okay – I tried it. Tried to write a 50,000 novel in 30 days. If I didn’t have to take a week off to entertain family for Thanksgiving, I might have made it. It was my first time to try, and I should have pushed harder the first two weeks. Trying to write half a novel in five days just won’t cut it. The thought of having to type 10K words a day just to make the deadline froze my creativity in it’s tracks. So I’m giving up on NaNoWriMo, but not the novel. She’s looking good, actually, but will be taking her own sweet time.
