I started writing my novel today. Today is the first day of NaNoWriMo. It is recommended that to get to 50,000 words in a month you need to write 1,667 words per day. I ended at four pages, double spaced and 1,789 words. It took an hour and a half. I have to figure out what works best for me. Tommorrow I am planning to get up early and try to write in the morning and also sometime try to write at night. This is the time to practice. Practice writing in different places and at different times and getting in a specific word count each day. The beautiful thing about NaNoWriMo is that it is not about writing a perfect novel, it is about becoming disciplined as a writer. Have you reached your 1,667 today?
