NanoWriMo TIME!!!!!!!!

The Trophy Wife is so excited. Tomorrow is November 1st. You know what that means...NaNoWriMo time. That is National Novel Writing Month for those of you not in the know. It's where us aspiring novelistas attempt to write a 50,000 word novel or the first 50,000 words of a novel in -wait for it- 30 DAYS!!!!! EEK. I know. I know. That breaks down to at least 1,666.6666666666666666666666 words a day. Lets just round that up 2nd grade style: 1,670. ( to the nearest tens place, lol) That is alot of damn words in one day. But oh yes it can be done.

The great thing about Nano is that the focus is primarily on output. It forces those of us that are anal about perfect phraseology to quiet the self-editing voices in out heads and just write. The only requirement to "win" Nano is that you write 50,000 words. Whether you cheat yourself and write the same word 50,000 times is all on you. No one is going to read it. On the NanoWrimo site, there is merely a word count. Nano is truly a reason to be self-satisfying. Write what you have always wanted but have talked yourself out of.

So, November 1st is less than 4 hours away and I have no idea what I am writing about. I guess that I am going to have to wing it. I am better working on the fly anyway. That is how I graduated from college with honors. Magna Cum Laude to be precise. All procrastination :)

As this post comes to an end, it is 8:49 pm. Almost 3 hours till nano. Let's go get em.

If anyone want to add me as a friend, my name is "reignbeaulefem"
