NaNoWriMo? Don’t mind if I do!

So…you’re probably like, “Dude! Where’s the rest of my horror days?”

Yeah, shit happens. Sorry about that. More specifically, life happened. After a much maligned couple weeks at work, I decided it was in my interest to take a hiatus; a permanent one. My stress levels have dropped, so I’ve got that going for me. It’s also freed me up to focus full time on writing, and I am so happy it has. Stoked, in fact. 

For those that don’t know, November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNiWriMo). Seeing as majority of my past jobs were retail, November was never really a good month for me, until now! The goal is to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. That translates to 1,667 words a day. Doing the maths, I should be at 6,668 words as of today. Well, I find myself at 17,039 words today! Yes, I’m kicking ass and having a great time, thank you. 

So what does this mean? It means I’m happy. It means I’m motivated. It means I’m taking this shit seriously and I’m going to fucking be the best me I can be! Good things are coming. I know it. I can feel it in my bones.
