NanoWriMo — The struggle is real people.

So I signed up for NanoWrimo….

What was I thinking?

If you don’t know what NanoWrimo is its National Novel Writing Month. So for the month of Nov. you write 50,000 words. That’s roughly 1600 words a day.

I have signed up for NanoWrimo several times and have never ever finished.

I’m starting a new series and honestly believed that signing up would push me to write book 1.

It’s Nov. 8th, and I’ve written 750 words. 🙁

I don’t know what it is about Nano that first makes me think I can write 1600 words in a single month, but that I can continue that type of writing for 30 full days.

The strangest thing is if I hadn’t signed up for Nano I may have written more words. But the deadline aspect of Nano, makes me worry more about writing and not actually getting any writing done.

Tell me I’m not alone…
