We all know what tomorrow is.

And, of course, if you don’t know, it’s the beginning of National Novel Writing Month, i.e. NaNoWriMo.

I’m not in a place where I can truly do NaNo, in the actual sense of the thing. (The last thing I ever need to do is to begin a new project. My troubles always have to do with finishing–and revising–what I have already begun.)

And so I set my own NaNo goals. I’m going to try to set out three days’ worth of goals tonight, to be accomplished, of course, before the end of Wednesday. If all goes well, at the end of Wednesday, I’ll put up another three, and so on through the end of the month. Because this is also the middle of the semester and I’m teaching four writing-intensive classes, I’m going to try to be realistic, rather than over-ambitious. But here goes, anyway.

Monday, Nov. 1: Retype 2 pages of handwritten work
Tuesday, Nov. 2: Print & pencil-edit Story A
Wednesday, Nov. 3: Complete edits on Story A & draft submission plan
