I am sure that every intrepid writer has at some point or another thought about the NaNoWriMo challenge. Many have attempted but few succeed this perilous road to completing 50,000 words in a month. I myself have tried and failed four times.

However, my failures have given me helpful experience. The most important thing being that I cannot spend December-October writing less than 10,000 words a month and then suddenly expect that I can write 50,000 in november. I burn myself out in under 10 days.

Thus! I have given myself monthly word goals for 2015 to gradually build myself up to 50,000 words. I'm calling it. The Road to 50,000, a Perilous Journey Fraught With Danger (procrastination):

  • January - 10,000 words - 323w/day

  • February - 13,000 words - 464 w/day

  • March - 16,000 words - 516 w/day

  • April - 20,000 words - 667 w/day

  • May - 25,000 words - 806 w/day

  • June - 30,000 words - 1,000 w/day

  • July - 35,000 words - 1,129 w/day

  • August - 40,000 words - 1,290 w/day

  • September - 45,000 words - 1,500 w/day

  • October - 50,000 words - 1,613 w/day

  • November - 50,000 words - 1,667 w/day

  • December - 50,000 words - 1,613 w/day

That's a total wordcount goal of about 384,000 for 2015, enough to fit in all my 2015 Projects. I should hit 50,000 words a month in October, this will be my practice month. I'm hoping that if I build myself up to this pace I'll be able to sustain it (or something very close) into the future. 50,000 words a month for 12 months is 600,000 words a year. With that much output I should be able to focus on my original novels AND the fanfiction that is usually distracting me from writing them.

Wish me luck!

The list of fics I absolutely would like to finish in 2015.

1. Lotus Roots: Yes, I want to finish it next year. It haunts me like the ghosts of christmas past, present, and future.

2. Potentia: Because the Dragon Fire universe is like my magnum opus and there are two more parts after Potentia. I should at least finish one part of it a year.

3. Concubine!verse 3 and 4: I should not be the only person subjected to the craziness that is happening in Junsu's and Jaejoong's heads.

4. Not-So-Baby Slytherin: Everyone needs fluff in their life. Also it is basically a bunch of short drabbles and I will be ashamed of myself if its not done.

5. Good Hyungdeul: I have outlined all five parts of this fic which means there is no reason not to finish it.

6. Good Luck Charm universe fics: FOR ALL THE LITTLE DEVILS SITTING ON MY SHOULDER ASKING FOR MORE!! I will give you every single one of the threesomes and the billion YJM shots if it kills me!

Then there are the one shots... I have come to realize that I may not be capable of writing a one-shot that doesn't imply massive background story/world building thus prompting me to want to just make them open ended series. Well, whatever. I want to at least give you 'Perfect Spouses', 'For rent to own', and 'Space Station'. There are like a million universes in my head begging for attention.

The real question: Is this doable? Well, I do have word count estimates for this stuff and it adds up to like 300,000 words. JFC!! Okay, that's a rate of approx 820 words a day. My goal is 1000 words per day which for my is about 1 to 1.5 hours of writing time a day.

It is a worthy goal!!!
