Week 2

I'm only writing 500 hundred words or so per session. Don't know if I'm going to win this year.

Life and All

Life happened to get in the way and couldn't write all week. But I'm back and aim to catch up. If that means putting in some sleepless nights, but I'm up to it.

Day 2

No writing done! Went out to dinner instead. This could not be avoided. So it's catch up time, already. Very bad sign.

Day 1

And we're off!

Banged out 1740 words this morning. I'll have another session later in the day to bring the total up to 2,000 words.

My Writing Machine

Tomorrow's the big day! I'll be writing this year's novel on my Olympia SM3 manual typewriter. I have other typewriters, but this big Olympia is my favorite. I'll have to write 172 pages to get 50k by Nov. 25, that's about 7 pages a day. I'm aiming for 2,000 words a day so I can finish early, and have a buffer in case I miss writing sessions.

3 days to go!

Yes, only three days to go before the November madness strikes. I'll be writing a day-by-day account of how I'm getting along. There's nothing to sell, nothing to buy, only the literary squirmings of a lesser known author.

And watch this space for the Amazing NaNoWriMo Beard I'll be growing. My wife will hate it, but I can get away with it for at least a month.
