NaNoWriMo Goals

I figure if I’m going to do this thing, I should actually do it right. Here are the things I’m hoping to accomplish with my foray into National Novel Writing Month:

1.) Write at least 1,000 words per day.
2.) Make writing every day a habit (that I continue after November, clearly)
3.) Get excited about writing again!
4.) Post “inspiration” picture every day in October.
5.) End goal: 30,000 words (I know it’s not the full 50k, but if I make it anywhere in the ballpark of 30k – which I will, if I’m adhering to the first item on this list – I will be happy).
6.) End the month with: a detailed map of my country; fleshed-out characters; a clear idea of where to go next with the project.

I don’t think this is too much to ask for my first NaNoWriMo. I can’t wait to get started!

How about you guys? How are your NaNo plans coming? And for the veterans – What should I expect? Am I setting myself up for anything unpleasant down the line? HELP ME!

I'm a writer living and working in Cincinnati, OH. I've been writing for ages and ages. Somehow now I'm actually getting someone to pay me to do it.

  1. Yes, definitely realistic goals. I think getting hyped about writing again is one of the best thing about NaNoWriMo, even if you don’t plan to do the 50k.

    1. Yes! That’s really why I signed up in the first place. I’ve been feeling pretty stagnant as far as my personal writing goes after changing my life around so much. Hopefully NaNo can help!
