I have decided to do NaNoWriMo again this year. That’s not the point of this blog post, it’s the context. I’ve attempted NaNo every year since 2007, and after winning in 2008 and 2009 I struggled thereafter, with last year’s result a dire 2,500. So I know I can win NaNoWriMo, but at the same time my recent track record isn’t very good.
At the same time I’ve stalled with my Finishing Something targets. I wrote 2,045 words on Pilgrimage in two sittings then not a word since. Another project I’ve been working on in the last month met a similar fate. At this point, it’s been a week since I’ve written a word of fiction. Not a good place to be in when, three weeks from now, I plan to start a 30 day stint of writing an average of 1,667 words a day.
