Today marks the first day of November, which means that it is also the start of National Novel Writing Month. It’s a month where writers are encouraged to meet their own goals and deadlines to finish their personal projects. I’ve done this twice before and I must say I was pretty good with reaching my goals. However, I’m all about improvement, growth, and progress, so I will definitely be raising the bar for myself during NaNoWriMo 2013. I have started to put together my first collection of sorts, but I do have other projects underway that need some TLC, not to mention the notes in my phone full of untouched ideas. So, this month, my goal is to finish at least one of my bigger projects and get some other projects started. My number goal is 40,000. Yeah, it sounds like a lot, but it is doable if I dedicate myself. I hope you all have put some thought into your goals for the month and I wish you the best of luck!
