Here's what I'm trying to do. Each day I'm trying to write 250 words before breakfast, 500 before lunch, 1000 before dinner, and then 1750 before bed. Is seems like a lot, but saying I need to write 500 words before lunch and then another 500 before dinner and 750 at night is a really great way to not get overwhelmed. I think being overwhelmed is probably why a lot of people quite NaNoWriMo. I just plugged those numbers into a calculator and if I can keep this rate up, I'll write 52,500 words this month. Eckk!
Now for two not so great notes. One, I have no writing buddies on YWP site. I feel like a total loser. Two, the Young Writers Program Site is not working. I think it might just be overwhelmed by the sheer numbers of young writers. Or aliens ate it. Either way, I'm not okay with it. Not at all. If anyone has any ideas on how I can get access to it again, please clue me in.
Until some later date.
