And So It Begins....
Yes, I am submitting myself to the torture once again this year. NaNoWriMo is all about commiting to writing 50,000 words during the month of November. That's 1667 per day. The idea being you will have a novel-length manuscript in 30 days! The secret plan, of course, is to push writers to the brink of insanity just for kicks...but we don't talk about that.
Ahem. So, this is my second NaNo, last year I "won" by actually writing a novel. My first. I was so proud, not realizing that the first draft is only the doorway to revision hell.That epic-young adult-horror-romance-supernatural-thriller is actually still sitting in a folder on my hard drive, oozing techno-mold...but hey, I did it and someday I will edit it. Really. Someday.
