Is anyone else participating in the 2017’s NaNoWrimo Challenge. (Don’t know what NaNoWrimo is? It’s National Novel Writing Month. It’s a big deal.) It’s remarkable to me that I’ve written more than 20 books (this still boggles my mind even though I know more than anyone that it’s absolutely true) BUT I’ve never finished a NaNoWrimo challenge. This year will be different.
And I know this will sound funny, but somehow I imagine that if I complete this goal that all I’ll rock my other goals as well–I’ll lose 15 pounds by my birthday in January, my book business will take off in new and exciting ways, my backyard will magically become a place of peace and beauty…
So here are my goals:
NaNoWrimo: Write for four hours or 4k words a day (which ever comes first) five days a week until I’ve written 50k words…even though my real goal is a 70k word novel. I’ll post each day’s segment so you can follow along.
Health: Exercise an hour a day, six days a week and eat 4 300-400 calorie meals a day.
Backyard: Spend an hour a week (on Saturdays) gardening.
