Commonly known as the National Novel Writing Month, what I refer to as November. I didn't join - too much pressure and November is ALWAYS busy for me. The goal "is to write a 175-page (50,000-word) novel by midnight, November 30."
I can manage maybe 1/4 of that, and then only because I now take a lunch where I can sit in front of my laptop, in a home, with no distractions. Otherwise...no.
It's a great idea, and I highly recommend it for others, but can't it be, say, February? Much less busy for me. Or maybe May? June? September? I'm good those months, too.
Despite my goal (which is more of a wish) to write something every day, I wrote nothing yesterday. But I did get some Christmas and birthday shopping done! Surely it counts as something.
