National Novel Writing Month is an event I usually honor in the breach; I begin a new novel when I have time, energy, and an idea I’m sufficiently intrigued by to want to chase for six months or a year. On top of that, the idea of completing a novel in one month is looney tunes; I seem to do most of the interesting work in my back brain, and that requires time for stuff to simmer. I usually manage one to three writing sessions a week, which three being the least usual; but I don’t necessarily get more down in three sessions than in two.

All that said, I’m glad to say that I’m now over 70,000 words into my current work in progress, Very Truly Run After; and that I plan to be working on it regularly throughout NaNoWriMo.
