What does the fact of today being June 1st have to do with anything? Well, let me tell you.
In 30 days, JulNoWriMo starts. Two years ago I did my first JulNoWriMo, barely made 50,000 words and practically collapsed when it was over. Since then, I’ve been writing a LOT more. Last year I went for 50k and ended up with 210k. In March I went for 100k in MarNoWriMo and ended up with 226k.
So now I knuckle down over the next month, getting the little things done in preparation for the month I won’t be around. Because I’ll be writing, writing, writing, writing, writing…
This July I’ve set my goal for 150k. Yes, I do set relatively conservative goals considering past precedent, but I have more than just writing going on this summer. Some major changes in my life that are more important than writing. (Can you believe I actually said that?)
I can’t promise to update my status bar daily, but I do update my excel spreadsheet daily and when I come online will update my numbers.
My hint? Have a month’s supply of Pepsi on hand 😉
