I've done it! I am an official participant in NaNoWriMo 2011! While I am both excited and terrified about the prospect of compiling a 50,000 word novel during the month of November, I know it's the right thing to do. This endeavor will force me to complete my work in progress and rid me of my bad habit of editing as I go. My strategy is to pace myself at 1700 words per day to make things more manageable.

I will definitely keep you updated on my process during November. Wish me luck and cheers to shitty first drafts.
