Of course the main significance of October 31 for thousands of people all over the world is that NaNoWriMo starts tomorrow. I’ve decided not to do it this year, but I’m also having pangs of regret as I feel the excitement mounting all around me.
So I’m going to compromise and set myself a mini-NaNo challenge:
1,000 words a day throughout November.
I won’t be creating a new novel, but I’ll try to use the NaNoWriMo energy to increase my writing speed as I work on several projects that have been clogging up my brain and computer for far too long.
If you’re using Halloween as an excuse for a party – have fun!
And if you’ve signed up for NaNoWriMo – good luck!
