The Annual NaNoWriMo Warning

If you've been following me less than a year, which I suspect the majority of those reading have been, you may not be aware of the way my life changes in November. After warning you this time last year, I felt it was only fair to remind/educate once again.
NaNoWriMo is short for National Novel Writing Month, an initiative in which hundreds of thousands of insane people attempt to write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November. That equates to 1,667 words a day, which in itself is an enormous challenge. However, add onto the fact that most people have jobs, classes- you know, lives, then it becomes a little ridiculous. But absolutely amazing.
I first signed up when I was thirteen years old, and last year, for the first time, I finally won (ie. wrote 50,000 words). As I gushed last December, I was enormously proud of this achievement. Especially as I managed to maintain a first in my studies and keep up to date with the blog. I like to refer to last November as that time I became wonder woman.
Over the past week I've resumed my planning with the enthusiasm only one who has forgotten previous pain can muster. At present I have plans for both a sequel and book three, and my mood currently is ALL about the writing.
This little widget below will show you how I'm progressing, and you'll be able to find it in the right sidebar everytime you come on the blog. If you want to study more fancy graphs, which I obsess over this month, then you can look at my official NaNo page here.
Ensure you're following my twitter and snapchat (sophiemnewbold) for what I'm sure will a hysterical (to an outsider) view of my gradual breakdown.
See you on the other side...
