NaNoWriMo 2019

I’m participating in National Novel Writing Month this year — loosely, at least. My goal is to do something writing related every day through November, whether it’s actually writing or something more adjacent like revising, editing, or submitting. I’m going to hold myself accountable by posting my progress here every few days.

November 1: I got some work done on my current novel, which is still in its infancy. I transferred some handwritten notes to my Scrivener document and organized them so they’d make actual sense. I also started a new chapter and got about 600 words in.

November 2: I was out most of the day, so I didn’t get any writing done, but before I left the house, I submitted my recently-finished CNF essay to a couple of journals. My Submittable queue looks less anemic now, and I’m valiantly resisting the urge to check it every five minutes.
