Time to Shift into High Gear

Tomorrow is the official start of National Novel Writing Month—or NaNoWriMo for the initiated.  The participants will attempt to write 50,000 words in the month of November.  I’ll be participating for the fourth time (unofficially—I’m not big on actually signing up for things like this), so I’ll need to kick up my writing word count from 500 words per day to nearly 1,700 words per day.  

Based on past, experience, that’s a tough haul, especially if unprepared, so I’ve been working on cleaning up the outline of the novel I want to finish (started in last year’s NaNoWriMo).  I should be good to go…I hope.  I’ll try to keep a steady flow of posts and updates here, but if I go quiet, it’s unlikely I was eaten by a shark, just buried alive under a mountain of words.
