Lose Weight, Write Book

November is when NaNoWriMo takes place.  NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month.  The idea is to write a novel in 30 days.  While that may seem a little daunting, a novel is defined as 50K+ words.  The first Harry Potter novel was roughly 73K words, just to give you some perspective.

I tend to write 1000-3500 words a day when I'm on a project, unless it's the weekend.  Weekends I can knock out like 5000-7500 words a day, no problem.  I'm currently sitting around 15K words for my book and I'm only gracing chapter 3 at this point.

If you are working on your own NaNoWriMo project, let me know.  I'll be your writing buddy!  You can find me HERE.

I do get pretty...well I'm concentrating.  I've learned that quoting Jack (see below) gets you in big trouble, even though he is absolutely correct.



Since I'm planning on being fairly sedentary for the next month, I am planning on going to the gym more frequently in the mornings and eating healthier.  This is a great season for it too.  There's lots of pumpkin around and nuts.  I have a couple pounds of frozen cherries.  It will be great.  I've started out by changing my lunch primarily to chopped salad.  I'm really liking them.  Actually, my favorite is the Bacon Bleu - it's extra awesome if you add in a diced apple or pear.
