This year, I’m starting an entirely new novel for you, dearest NaNoWriMo. I’ve prepared with an outline. Character studies. Writing partners. A new music playlist. A writer’s retreat for when I hit that mid-November what-the-heck-was-I-thinking slump. And caffeine. Lovely, lovely caffeine.

Though we’re only six days into November, I’ve already amassed 11,000 words. Now that all that remains between me and victory on December 1st is another 39,000 words.

I can do this.
