There’s no doubt that NaNoWriMo rocks. Just thirty days of work in trade for a complete first draft? Awesome. But that doesn’t mean NaNoWriMo is for everyone. To succeed requires the perfect storm of story, determination, temperament, and an open schedule. Cranking out 1,666 words a day (yes, I did the math) is not for everyone.
When Hunter first put this post out, I shared this infographic on Twitter etc showing how to write a book in two years. The whole post is worth a proper reblog as there is so much gold in here! Thank you Hunter: particularly from someone who hates long term projects and likes things done and dusted. This is a good reminder to pace myself. http://cateartios.wordpress.com/2013/05/12/atozchallenge-y-is-for-2years2abook-infographic/
