NaNoWriMo – Update #1: 20K+ & Counting

NaNoWriMo – Update #1: 20K+ & Counting

Here’s a short and sweet update #1 as I and some 300,000+ writers from around the world enter week 2 of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). I’m pleased to report that I’m ahead of schedule (see graph below) for reaching the 50,000-word count before the end of the month as well as on schedule to reach my personal goal of either 75,000 words of the end of the rough draft of my sequel novel, FreeForm Reborn.
I noticed a couple days before the kickoff that I was beginning to psych myself out with the idea of completing the full rough draft in just 30 days, so I decided I need to add some fun and play to the project. So, I decided to experiment with writing at least part of the novel by dictating it. After all, dictating your writing seems to be one of the hot topics right now among indie authors, in part because many report a significant increase in their writing speed and quality.
So, what the hey, let’s give it a try. More on that to follow in a subsequent blog post, but I’m finding dictating to be a fun and worthwhile experiment. It’s also been helpful that here in the North Carolina mountains we’re experiencing one of the rainiest Novembers I can ever remember, so little outdoor activities to distract me. Okay, that’s it. Stay tuned for more updates soon.
