Tomorrow begins AugNoWriMo: August Novel Writing Month. This is and official month, though the website is not nearly as cool as the NaNoWriMo website, and the "holiday" is much more obscure. There is less structure as well. Rather than setting the goal of 50,000 words in a month with no prior work, AugNoWriMo allows you to set up your own goals and continue work on a current project, as long as you finish the novel in 31 days.
My goal, therefore, is to complete the second draft of my novel in 31 days. I shall write 2,600 words and a blog entry each day, and I shall send each chapter of the novel out as I finish each chapter. (If you'd like me to send you a copy, please let me know.)
I will be done with the second draft by Labor Day, as I had originally intended, though I will need to work harder and longer each day. Considering that I have no "real job" at the moment, this may be a welcome change to hours of nothing to do but housework.
