Last year I did two things I've never done before: I completed a story, and I won NaNoWriMo. This year, I found out about a NNWM-like challenge that takes place over the course of a whole year. As I understand it, the rules are essentially the same, except you don't have to only work on one project, and if you started a project before the year, anything new you add still counts. I arrived too late to actually sign up (you have to get in BEFORE the 1st, which I think is unfair and stupid, BUT HEY THAT'S JUST ME APPARENTLY) but I still like the idea and I'm doing it anyway. I'm behind schedule (I wrote NOTHING for the first eight days of the year) but I'm catching up (I wrote over a thousand words today). I'm hoping that this goal will spur me to write in the same way NNWM does, but with a lower per-day target wordcount (411, to reack 150k) it will be less stressful and cause less burnout than NNWM. I'll still do NNWM, of course!

Currently, I've written about a hundred words for a round robin going on among some of my friends at Millers Hollow, a few hundred (five, maybe seven) of roleplay beginnings I might end up playing with my wife, and a few hundred of NecRomance, which I'm hoping to make into my primary project for the year. I intend for either Crossdressing Prince or Kendra's Ghost to become my NNWM project.

Basically, this is my personal declaration: 150k words this year!
