1,667 words a day X 30 days = 50,000 words

Examples of novels that are approximately 50,000 words:

Of Mice and MenBrave New World

The Adventures of Tom SawyerThe Great Gatsby

True GritThe Catcher in the Rye

If the title of this post makes no sense to you, perhaps you've never heard of NaNoWriMo, otherwise known as National Novel Writing Month. That would be when writers all over the world attempt to write 50,000 words between November 1st and November 30th. They (we) will be writing the rough draft of a novel. Some of these novels may eventually be published. Will mine be one of them? Will yours?  I'm in!  Sign up here, if you too want to be a crazy writer.

How do you possibly have the time to keep up with you blog, your daily life and still write 1,667 words a day? It'a a daunting task.
Thanks for asking if I am mending. The answer is "yes" but it's slow. The femur seems to be the least of it ... gettig my energy back is the big challenge !
