So in typical Niko fashion I woke up November 1st and made my decision about National Novel Writing Month [NaNoWriMo]. I have decided that I will not be participating this year. Instead I have created, for myself, Niko Finishes Her Novel Month [NiFiHeNoMo]! Granted it doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, but it is my hope that the sense of pride and accomplishment that I imagine happens after completing NaNoWriMo will still wash over me.
So, I have set a target of 30,000 words in 30 days in order to reach my 80,000 word count goal. By November 30th, I will, like successful NaNoWriMo participants, have in my hands a completed first draft. Yay!
As far as my idea for NaNoWriMo all is not lost. Not when Camp NaNoWriMo exists! It is basically the same idea [50,000 words in 30 days], but you can participate during the month of April or July. Depending on where I am on my edit I may participate then or there is always next November.
In the mean time there's nothing like a couple of pretty little notebooks to keep my ideas in until then!
Alright, I have to go now...I have a goal to reach!
