Nanowrimo Complications

I have discovered three things that can interfere with hitting the NaNoWriMo goal of 50,000 words in November:

A 3 month old baby
A sick 3 month old baby
A sick 36 year author

String those together and you end up with a project that is only 30% of the pace needed to get the job done. I will keep up with it and try to catch up. I am however, willing to commit as much as six weeks to this first draft.

Getting Serious About This "Writing" Thing

For the sake of my mental health, I have decided that I should give up the idea of being a career engineer in favor of being a writer with an engineering day job.

In pursuit of that, I have signed on to NaNoWriMo to get my second novel written. I will put my first, Intangible Assets below, (I have yet to put it through a proper word count yet) will go through another draft and I plan to start shopping it around with publishers at the start of the new year. Additionally, I intend to vocalize Intangible Assets as a podiobook after the re-write and getting the recording software and hardware.

Wish me luck.
