NaNoWriMo 2013

Hi friends!

Remember last year I almost didn't DO NaNoWriMo because I was burned out and blabity blah blah?

This year, I found a new way to approach NaNoWriMo for a little more of a thrill and thus a little more of a challenge. I'm not talking about shooting for 100K instead of 50K. I'm talking about striking out on a balls to the wall crazy first two weeks of keyboard pounding that dwindles down to 1 word on November 30th.

I usually finish my 50K before Thanksgiving.

Here's the breakdown, which I got from the blog linked above and I'll link here again.

Word Quotas using the "Reward System" also known as "Backwards NaNoWriMo" which doesn't really make sense.

  • Day 1: 3346 (It’s day one! Just do it! And you can and will!)
  • Day 2: 3216
  • Day 3: 3101
  • Day 4: 2986
  • Day 5: 2872
  • Day 6: 2757
  • Day 7: 2642
  • Day 8: 2527 (This is the hard part. Week one is out of the way, but you’ve still got some painful quotas left. Just do it!)
  • Day 9: 2412
  • Day 10: 2298
  • Day 11: 2183
  • Day 12: 2068
  • Day 13: 1953 (Almost there…)
  • Day 14: 1838 (Almost there……)
  • Day 15: 1724 (Halfway point! After this, you’ll be writing less every day than everyone else! This is the time where you need this!)
  • Day 16: 1609
  • Day 17: 1494
  • Day 18: 1379
  • Day 19: 1264
  • Day 20: 1150
  • Day 21: 1035 (Less than a thousand words a day after this! And everyone else is struggling to catch up and still write their 1667 words per day!)
  • Day 22: 920
  • Day 23: 805
  • Day 24: 690
  • Day 25: 576 (That’s a single good Word War! Feel free to laugh at the people with over three times this quota today!)
  • Day 26: 461
  • Day 27: 346
  • Day 28: 231
  • Day 29: 116
  • Day 30: 1 (Aww yeah! One word left! Make it a good one! )
So, there you have it. The Reward System. I'm going to try it out. I'll let you all know how it goes with an update every few days. Maybe like, two or three times a week.

As for what I'm writing this year, it's what I'm hoping will be literary horror. It's zombies, but I'm doing something a little bit different. The working title is Then and Now.

Keep Writing!
