NaNoWriMo: Day 1

NaNoWriMo is a somewhat imperfect acronym for National November Writing Month.

Starting on November 1st, victims participants start work on a 50,000 word novel, the goal being to complete said novel on or before 11:59 PM EST on November 30th of the same year.  I have a small head start, which I will desperately need if I actually hit the target date for completion.  Use of a pocket calculator will reveal that the minimum word count per day is 1,666; but that's the minimum.  If I'm actually going to make this, I have to produce around 2000.  This is not an easy task, but it's possible.

My novel is entitled The Making of Magic, and is a prequel to the anthology Magic for Hire.  If you haven't read the anthology, you can buy Magic for Hire on Amazon.  Splurge a little, and know that for every copy you buy, you're supporting a starving artist living in an unheated garret with a leaky roof and bad lighting.

And so, to work.
