What is NaNoWriMo? It is National Novel Writing Month. Embraced by novelists, authors, and writers. The goal is to write 50,000 words in a story format. Formatting does not matter, genre does not matter, and neither do your typing skills or grammar. This is a goal each person sets for him or herself, and all milestones should be celebrated.
My goal is to write 50,000 words in a new genre. The new to me genre is romance. Romance has a formula and to have a romance novel that means I have to meet the expectations of the industry. To reach the word count is doing what I do already, type 2,000 words a day. My stretch is writing to market and catching all the beats anticipated by the reader and demanded by the publishers.
