NeYeWriMo 0.1 Beta

So, let’s expand on this a little more.

What’s my goal? My goal for this year is to successfully complete NaNoWriMo after last year’s miserable failure. After a little bit of soul searching, I determined that my failure was mostly based on the fact that I do not now, nor have ever, actually written fiction.

So, much like with running, I think that I need to start with “low mileage” and ramp up to marathon distance. NaNoWriMo is 50K words, or a schwackton per day (on the order of 1,000 words per day)

Here’s the general plan:
1. Start Small
2. Work Up
3. ???
4. Profit!

So, I’m trying to get through January at 100 words of fiction per day.

February, I’ll begin to ramp up quantity.

Sometime in the summer, I’ll start working on plot.

And by November, I’ll be ready to go.

How ’bout you?

    I don’t think I have enough in me to take on this kind of committment. My writing generally just happens.

    But you gotta go for it. I’ll heartily cheer you on.
