Facing public humiliation worked so well for me to get in shape, I’ve decided to give it a try with my writing.
By the end of November, less than 30 days away, I will have completely written the manuscript for She’s Losing It!
Ok. It’s out there now, so if it’s not done you can hunt me down and call me a total slacker. I even entered the
National Novel Writing Month online competition, fondly known as nanowrimo.org. (You can sign up too if you are crazy enough, like me, to think you can write an entire 50,000 word book in a month.)
I’m supposed to write 1,667 words per day. This is the seventh day of the month, so my count should be 11,669. To date I have written 463 words…
But that’s ok! The day is young! And I will cross that 50,000 word finish line because, as they say at nanowrimo, “The looming specter of personal humiliation is a very reliable muse.”
