Get Excited – It’s Time for NaNoWriMo

Scroll down for printable NaNo Calendar ๐Ÿ™‚

Last year was the first time I actually won NaNoWriMo (won means made it to 50k in the allotted time in NaNo terms) and it gave me unbelievable boost in confidence. Not to mention, I finally witnessed for myself that making time to write is completely viable even for an eternally tired pigeon like myself.

So this year I have been looking forward to November with a mixture of excitement and smug confidence. Been there, done that, I will be totally bossin’ this time around.

Well… that’s complete bs. Last year I had a great outline and impressive amount of research to back me up. I had not one, but two main characters and a few secondary that I loved. And the story – historical fiction about Ancient Thrace – made me flutter with impatience to get tapping on the keyboard.

This year I have nothing but a huge load of confidence. No story, no characters, no nothing. So wish me luck!

Oh, I got one thing I did not have last year! A printable word count calendar, which I want to share with you. Actually I made two. Take your pick between the minimalist oneย (write down the total word count every day) and ย theย girly one (write down daily word counts and compare them to target numbers at the end of the week. Fill in the heart for achieved or surpassed target!)

I hope they are useful and inspire you for great plotting achievements! ๐Ÿ™‚
