The race is on! Every November for four years now, I have signed up to write a 50,000 word novel by November 30th at midnight. It is an exhilarating, crazy, madcap dash to the finish line with over 150,000 other writers. We kicked off at midnight and I'm 1,192 words in. Wish me luck! (And send me motivational goodies!)

Do you usually get to the big 50k? :)

I did win for my first two years, and then last year I lost miserably. I think I managed 3,000 words before giving up. Jack was 1&1/2 months old and nursing and I had just returned to work, and I couldn't figure out how to fit 50,000 words in without caffeine!

50,000 words with a baby on the boob... now that would be epic.

(Not to mention, the caffeine would get through to him...)

Melissa said... see my dilemma then!
