* Day 9 – Have you told anyone else you’re doing NaNo this year? Who? What was their reaction?

I told my Facebook friends in a status and my Creative Writing class. That’s honestly about it, haha. Most people seem to think I’m crazy but also seem to respect the fact that I’m somehow keeping up with the crazy workload it requires.

I also get a lot of “Only 1,667 words a day? That’s like…three pages, right? That’s not bad at all!” And I want to ask them why THEY’RE not doing it, then. It’s easy until you hit the fifth day or so. Then you realize just how horrific that goal is.
