Very excited that it’s November 1st and I can officially tackle a project I’ve been looking forward to for a while. True, I’ve technically been writing my Pacific Crest Trail book since April, though it started as a blog, but I’ve been waiting for NaNoWriMo to fully jump into it.
It’s flowing very well right now, the words are just leaping onto the page, and I can’t seem to stop writing. The progress bars on the right hand side of the page will give you a glimpse at my status as I chase the 50,000 word mark by the end of the month. As with most of my writing projects, I’m sure I’ll need more than that to finish the book, but it’s good to at least have it as an initial goal.
I love November and NaNoWriMo because it motivates me in a way no other writing process has been able to. My hope is that this blog, and a dedication to getting content up on a weekly basis, will motivate me even further, to finish the book about my PCT adventure and even finish up other projects that have been lurking for two long.
As I continue with this process, and add to the blog every Friday (at the least), I’ll be posting excerpts, inspirations, and photos/images that capture what I’m working on that week. Comments are welcome, as always, and I look forward to sharing my writings and ramblings with you each week.
