Exercising Write

All Signed Up!

Written By: Charlene L. Amsden - Oct• 21•11

I have just signed up for NaNoWriMo — National Novel Writing Month.  My goal is to write a complete 50,000 word novel in a month.  To make my goal I will have to write 1666 words per day.  I am going to target 2000 words per day.  I would rather write too many than too few, and this way if there is a power outage or some other technical crisis, I will have some wiggle room.

If you are participating in NaNoWriMo and would like to follow my progress, I am writing as Quilldancer.  If you aren’t participating in NaNoWriMo and would like to follow my progress, just visit this website. I will update my word count daily.

Wish me luck!

    That’s a great goal. Have you been thinking of your story line for a while, or are you going in with more of a “Create as I go” approach?

    Wishing you success.

    Congratulations! That’s marvelous! I’m training to do the Blog one. Starting a new job and all, I don’t think that I could commit the time required to do the novel one. Besides, I really should edit and/or work on rewrites for the novel I already have. Good Luck, Ms. Quilly! 🙂

    P.S. I have a musical set that I created just for you over on my blog. 😀

    I’ve heard about this for years and thought about it. November is such a busy month with the holidays, though. I wish you well!
