As will a few friends from an online class I took in May/June, I will try to post to my blog every single day in November.
Why, you ask?
For one thing, I believe there are different readers out there in blogger world on the weekend, readers who are too busy to stop by during the week. I’d like to meet some of them.
Another reason? I’m hoping a daily blog post will lead to daily progress on my book, especially if I link the two together when I set my writing schedule. Even though I did not sign up for NaNoWriMo, I’m hoping to add 50,000 words to my novel during the month of November. That will bring me so close to the finish line that I’ll surely have a solid first draft by the middle of December.
I’ll also attend the Northern Colorado Writers Retreat at Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch November 13-15. Last year I wrote 13,000 words at that retreat. I think I can do better this year, especially if I skip the campfire and the s’mores.
Big goals. One short month. Wish me luck.
