Back in 2015 when I finally decided that the days of procrastination had to end I decided that I would take part in the National Novel Writing Month (Nanowrimo) in which participants attempt to write a 50k novel in 30 days.
I had attempted Nanowrimo before, a year or so earlier, and had failed abysmally but in 2015 I decided that even if I didn’t reach the 50k target by November 30th, I would keep on writing until I had and half-way into 2016 I had written the first draft of my first novel, LIVING WITH SACI.
I’m currently about 35k into my fifth novel and another 50k would put me past my minimum 80k target. The deadline I have set myself for the completion of the first draft is the end of December so if I succeed with Nanowrimo I will finish a month ahead of schedule. Even if I don’t succeed, at least I’ll be closer to the finishing post.
Hopefully you can keep track of my word count via this image:
