A Certain Light

For the majority of people out there who don’t know, Nanowrimo stands for National Novel Writing Month. It is the website, yearly gathering, or organized madness which challenges people who would like to be called writers to write 50,000 words in the month of November. That is all. 50,000 word between November 1 and November 30. There are no prizes other than the satisfaction of having completed the task. I would like to say that I have been part of it for some five or six years, but that would be overstating my involvement. I have never written more than a few hundred words in any single year.

This year something has changed. I would like to say that it has to with more free time, but that would be a lie. The amount of free time has no changed that much from past years. It could say that past project did not have enough to them to interest me. Also a lie. For whatever the reason, as of November 9, I am on schedule. I’m even a couple hundred words ahead. I just posted a word count of 14,844 words. My posting of this amazing fact was delayed until a week in just to be sure that it was not some kind of fluke. I will attempt to keep any progress updated here at the end of each week.

I titled this post a Certain Light in reference to the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. Time will only tell if it is the tunnels end or the on coming light of a train set to prow me under.
