how far can I get
Okay, let's try something.




I'm not a NaNo person. Seriously, I can't write 50000 words in a year, and you want me to do it in a month? You so funny.

I'm a slow, reluctant writer. But my goal for this month is to get the next chapter of How Far written. And maybe some of the next, too. (Yeah, let's not get crazy now.) So somewhere in the neighborhood of 5000 words. That's much more realistic for someone like me.

I think my gaps between updates is losing people, so I want to try to get at least one more chapter done before the end of the year. And since next month will probably be too busy with D graduating and Christmas and all, this might be my best chance to crank some stuff out.

And if I put it here, people will have to hold me to it.

So, do.

You can do it! And I totally am holding you to that. :)

I knew I picked the wrong time to try to do this. I just spent the last five and a half hours helping D write a paper (he paces and dictates while I type and try to turn his ramblings into coherent sentences), so the last thing I want to do now is work on my own stuff.

50,000 words in a month? Assuming writing is one's full time job and you work 22 days a month... 2272 words a day. At that pace you'll reach your goal in 2 days plus some over time.

my gaps

13 months and counting! Most of my readers have started school, graduated, and started school again. Some have conceived, found out, and given birth. That's how long it's been.

I'll hold you to it. According to my math *glances back up* I'll check back in two days.
