100K typing writers must be crazy

Okay, so I don't know how many writers have actually signed up for NaNoWriMo, but 100K sounded good. 
 
I'll be madly writing this month is many others in a challege to produce 50K words in a month.  Notice, I didn't say a 50K word novel in the month of November, because that's not my personal goal.  My books are way longer than 50K words and therefore, completeing a 50K word novel from beginning to end isn't much of a benefit for me.  So, every year, I continue to work on my current project during National Novel Writing Month.
 
This year's project is Dawn of Redemption, the sequel to the upcoming Dawn of Love from Champagne Books.  I started writing it about two weeks ago.  The current wordcount stand at a shade under 30K.  This means, if I successfully complete NaNoWriMo this year (and if I remember to actually add the appropriate figures to my wordcount chart on the NaNo site) I should have an 80K word novel by the end of this month. 
 
That's the plan.  Actually... a bit more.  I want the final word count to be roughly 90K because there's a good chance this book, as well as it's predecessor, could see mass market paperback and if I want to see it in print, it must needs have a certain word count.  Any shorter and it will in e-press exclusively, and I kinda like the idea of a book being available in both formats. 
 
So... it's time for me to get to work.  I have 60K words to write!
 
Peace,
Marjorie
