National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) officially begins each year on November 1, when participants start working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30. For those of you mathematically challenged, that’s 1,666 words a day — if you write 7 days a week.

So here goes. Wish me luck and good writing!
