Leave your NaNo name in the comments or friend me at YellowTypingFiend.
Even before the accident, I knew I'd be in crunch time at work, so I'm doing a modified word count this year.
Word Count Goal: 20,100 in 2010
Let's take a little trip down
NaNoWriMo 2008 : The Apocalypse
Not only did I not win, but I almost dumped my boyfriend and died from a tantrum. (It's aaaalmost funny now...almost)
But I did complete my goal of 30,000 words.
::Wayne's World time warp::
(if you're too young to know this reference, you're probably the right age to hire me as your college application coach)
Now in 2010 I have way too many manuscript half-babies in various stages of gestation; the last thing I need is to start another one.
Sooo, I will be writing the rest of that 2008 manuscript.
I know, I know, it's supposed to be an entirely new novel. BUT - it is. Because I will pick up where I left off and all 20,100 words will be entirely new.
The only reason I won my first and third years is because my company disappeared in the financial crash (2007) and I dropped out of journalism school (2009). Therefore, I encourage you to set modified word counts even if you don't have time to finish all 50,000 words. It's worth it.
