November 3

... and I have a title. An unshakable head cold is sapping every last ounce of strength.

NaNo is just not going to happen this year.

I'll have to sit down with one of my unfinished books and remind myself of why I started writing them. ...Read more

What will it take?

Is it possible to do NaNo this year? It was a challenge in 2006, working on ~1700 words/day. How much time do I have this year?

Since I'll be out of town for 6 days at the end of November, that means I have to get this finished and in the word processor by Nov 24. I should be able to find a WiFi connection to upload the file when the validator opens up after the 25th. I'll be gone hunting for 6 days in the middle, which leaves 30-12=18 days total.

Realistically, Monday through Friday is the only time I can do this. That gives me 11 days. Oops, subtract Veteran's Day, leaves 10 days. That's 5000 words/day. There were some days in 2006 when I did 3000/day, but they were unusual. I can feel my wrists hurting already.

If only I didn't have a day job.
