THANK YOU!!! I think I needed someone to 'give me permission' grin

but do I have to log a certain number of words per day?
Will I not be hopelessly behind?

If you want to finish in time, you’ll need to write 2941 words a day, which is a lot but manageable if you’re off work due to your foot. My average per day is 1,875 but I’ve managed 5,195 on days off.

Go for it!

Just go for it! It’s not some sort of awful test or ordeal - there’s nobody standing at the finish line marking you off as a “pass” or a “fail”. It’s a way of building a daily writing habit, and creating a community for what can be a fairly lonely occupation.

Start right now. See how far you can get. If you like what you’ve done, keep going when NaNo is over. And enjoy the journey!
