Jon and I have recently decided to embark on the most difficult of journeys known as NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month. It’s a huge challenge undertaken by hundreds of thousands and acheived by an even smaller group. The point is to write at least 1,667 words a day for a total of 50,000 words by 11:59pm on November 30th, essentially writing a novel.
While the chances of us succeeding aren’t very high, we’re going to try our best. The hardest part about all of this is not only the word limit but also our schedule. We’re dealing with exams, a hell of a lot of papers (we are English majors, after all), as well as trying to fit P90X back into our already hectic schedule. We’ll probably do most of our writing on the weekends, if we aren’t too lazy or busy watching Face Off or Walking Dead.
