Watson, the Game is Afoot…

Today, NaNoWriMo began. I’m already behind, as I haven’t had a spare minute (until now) to actually write anything creative. Well, I guess I’m technically still on schedule–I’m shooting for weekly word counts. I am a grad student, after all. I have to prioritize.

Also, if I sound a bit defensive, it’s because I’ve just recovered from the worst bout of writer’s block I’ve ever had. EVER. In my entire seven years of writing, I have never been blocked this badly. I’m sure my film noir professor can attest to this fact–she’s probably grimacing over some poorly done reading responses, right about now.

Anyway, here’s the game plan: I need to write 20,000 to 30,000 words before the end of November. Real, coherent, part-of-my-novel words. I know, that’s not quite 50k. Don’t rub it in. I’m crazy enough to be attempting this at all. That divvies out to be 5,000 to 8,000 words a week. Two to three chapters. Should be cake…
