I’ve mentioned it here and there specifically in my State posts, but since it’s the last day of the month, I wanted to put up the “official” notice of my pseudo-hermitage for the month of November/NaNoWriMo. I am going to attempt to write at least 50k words of a new story (the official NaNo stipulations), which means I need to make time to get out an average of 1667 words a day, though I’ll be writing by hand, so it’s going to be a more rough estimate. I decided on handwritten because the last two stories were entirely on Word, and I was neurotic to the point of paranoia about losing my work. Oddly enough, handwriting stories doesn’t take any longer than not. It’s just a different initial stage of the writing process.
Since my three State and Final Fantasy Friday posts take hours to draft, review, and complete, they’re going on the chopping block for this month. I’m also going to potentially cut down my reading or at the very least not pick up anything new (except for my lunchtime Kindle breaks). I’ll still be checking comments and reading what blog subs I can on the weekend, though I’ve turned off nearly all of my notifications or attempted to…WordPress makes that so damn difficult.
