*skips in* Guess what time it is! Whoop whoop, that’s write – that pun will never cease to be on this blog, deal with it :’) – it’s NaNoWriMo time! I almost can’t believe it’s already here…it kind of snuck up on me this year because of how crazy everything has been, but I’m so glad it has finally arrived again. If you don’t know what on earth I’m talking about, please visit NaNoWriMo.org and educate yo’self. I’ve been blogging about NaNo for 6 years now, so I’m not going to repeat everything I’ve already said, but you can find all my NaNo posts here, my first-ever NaNo accounts here, and 2013’s NaNo (which was the year I posted the most helpful tips) here.
My NaNo goals: As per usual, I will be doing 50k Day One again, which is potentially a bad idea considering how much work I have to do, but whatever, it’s happening. I was going to try for The Million this year, but due to my accident earlier in the semester, I’m going to have quite a lot of academic work to do during November, so The Million will have to wait. I’ll probably go for 5k-ish a day after Day One – this will get me to almost 200k, which is my goal for this year.
