For those not in the know, NaNoWriMo happens every November, where thousands of writers all over the world attempt to write 50 000 words of a novel in 30 days. It's a huge ask and requires motivation, dedication and a huge abundance of time. For me the issue is time. I don't really have the time available and am not too sure how successful I'll be this year. I did manage the previous two years, but this year it is going to be a struggle and a challenge. I just hope I'm up for it.
I've done the ground work, research, plot, character sketches. But despite my preparation I don't feel as if I am in 'the zone.' I'm not sure how to get there and am hoping that once I start doing my 1600 words a day I'll just somehow magically fall into 'the zone.' At this late stage it's all I can hope for. Which is why I'm trying to frantically finish the new Jonathan Kelleman book I downloaded onto my Kindle.
Just over 24 hours until I start the 50 000 words. Wish me luck!
