Well. NaNo is upon us, and that small statement has reminded me of a little meme.
Well, I am not sure that is a meme, but a twitter post. But no matter. This is very true.
For those that don’t know, Inktober is when the artist draws a new ink drawing each day for a month. The picture can be as complicated as they want. That means that Inktober can be quiet easy. For those that can draw at least.
NaNo, however, is fifty thousand words in thirty days. That is huge. That can be challenging for some people.
Me, I have gotten off to a good start. It is the end of Day 2, and I am supposed to be at 3333 words. I am at 8000 words.
How am I doing that you ask? Well, I am glad that you did. First is that I type fast. I don’t type properly, but I do my own version of a chicken peek that seems to work for me. And I have started getting up at 5am.
That means that I have close to three hours before I must leave the house to go to work. That is a lot of words each day.
But that is what it takes to do either challenge. Take or make a piece of your day separate for your craft. And then protect it. I get up at 5am to do just that. And so far, no one is crazy enough to get up at that ungodly hour to challenge it.
So until something changes, I may be able to get my double NaNo goal done on time. But it is still too early to tell.
Anyways, I am off to bed. 5 am comes fast. Until next time.
