It’s just past midnight; it’s now officially the 27th.
I have planned (outlined) precisely 0 of my planned projects. (I did sorta plan to plan them tonight, but got held up at work until 10pm, and then didn’t really feel like doing any more work when I got home)
I have taken into consideration all the comments from my previous posts. You all pretty much have something of real merit to say – the million last year nearly killed me, and now I’m threatening to do the same after losing 40+ hours/week. Writing that *does* sound pretty insane, I’ll grant.
And I certainly don’t want to shirk my job and lose it. Not given that I’ve got a year-long lease to maintain.
So, we’ll compromise.
I’ll actually properly plan for 500,000, which I think is definitely possible, given my situation, especially with catch-up times for the weekend. I will also prepare 500k of alternate outlines. (Yeah, that’s going to pretty well pack this weekend.)
I will launch my month with a *goal* of a million.
However, if and when that proves impossible, I will gradually cut back. For those who are worried about my job/health/sanity, I want to preserve at least the first two of those three.
Nevertheless, I want to push myself to my limits this November, just as I attempt to every November. It just wouldn’t be NaNo without.
