I’ve endeavored to write, without completing, a 50,000 word novel in two of the last four years that I’ve known about NaNoWriMo. I’m going to do it again! By that I mean also that I will likely not finish.
National Novel Writer’s Month (NaNoWriMo) has a range of support for all willing to try: http://nanowrimo.org/ .
You needn’t partake of the elaborate procrastination resources or use the website at all, but dropping the growing file into the word count creates an encouraging bar graph to measure your doings.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re looking for some good writing spots in Kingston, New York to hole up in during some of our more grainy Autumn days ahead… perfect writing weather.
