I’ve achieved 10000 words in my novel…

Suddenly 50,000 seems like an unbelievable number – over one hundred pages of solid text written over the course of one month –  no exceptions. Why did I sign up for this again?

The NaNoWriMo challenge would have seemed impossible to me if I hadn’t read its purpose, to force “yourself to write so intensely… [so as to give yourself] permission to make mistakes. To build without tearing down.” If it were a requirement of 1667 well-thought out, perfected entries per day, then perhaps with my current schedule it would be. However, I can certainly write 1667 imperfect, still rough and needing polished entries each day, and I pray that I will so that I may grow as a writer.

Today I wrote about 800 words on my current novel – that took me about 45 minutes of brainstorming, revising, and research to do that much, however I believe NaNoWriMo will be much easier. It’s a clean slate, with all sorts of possibilities for a story, I already have an idea coming to me…
