Are you doing NaNoWriMo? Me too! I’ve been doing it since 2008 and I’ve yet to win once. I have a hard time forcing myself to sit down and write when there’s so much going on around me. My life always seems to be a huge clusterfuck in November. This year will be undoubtedly the same. But I have a plan.
Writing for long periods of time everyday is a habit I have to train myself into doing. There is no possible way for me to sit down and write 1,667 words in one sitting at the moment. Not happening. My ass will not sit in a chair long enough to do this. Yet.
I’m going to try something a little differently this year. Instead of trying to force myself into sit down and write 1.667 words in one sitting, I’m going to break my daily goals into chunks. I’ll start with 3 chunks of 556 words. Then I’ll go for two chunks of 834. Once I can do that, I’ll start shooting for 1,667 words in one sitting.
How about you? Are you doing NaNoWriMo this year?
