What is this blog post about?

Oh, yeah. JanNo.

My word count for today: 336
Total word count: 662
Goal for Month: 50000 words

I had a hard time getting going on this. I have this spreadsheet page I got over at JanNoWriMo, you can get it here, it's for tracking your progress on the word count. And so I'd write a couple of sentences, check the word count, and enter it into the spreadsheet. I was updating it every few minutes. Silly, but it kept me going longer than I thought it would.

Yesterday the hard thing was that I had to name some characters and that can take me a while. I decided to name the main character Makie. Not sure why that popped into my head, I think it's a character from the manga 'Negima'.

this really should go in the sidebar, but Blogger's being bad again.

Today's JanNo Progress

JanNo word count for the day: 326
Total JanNo word count: 326
Daily word count should be: 1667

Well, at least I wrote something today. Maybe tomorrow will be better.

Missed NaNo, and so: JanNo!

I confess: I didn't do NaNoWriMo last November. It just wasn't a good writing month for me. I did drop by the NaNo web site recently and found links to other NaNo-like events, which I have put into my link list.

In particular, JanNoWriMo--- January Novel Writing Month. The main difference between NaNo and JanNo is that in JanNo, you can bring an already-started novel into the game.

I'm thinking about using JanNo (which is more than half over) to work on an old novel idea of mine. I'm not going to tell what it is at this time because I don't want to jinx it. I will update this blog to report on my progress, if any.
