I’d thought it was a vague sort of “National [insert thing here]” month observation by our one and only Portsmouth Public Library, not an actual thing you register for, with a concrete 50,000 word count goal to reach!
In spite of that, I committed anyway and overshot the daily goal that evening by more than doubling it!

It’s now Day Ten, and although I’m not QUITE up to par, I’m doing fairly well considering I’ve had a few “0” days and even a “9” day… Write-In Tuesday accrued me almost 6k!
I have added a widget to this blog to further incentivize my progress.
My NaNo name is “cfparadis.”
Let’s DO this!
