Since InAdWriMo last year was a huge help in getting my dissertation written, I'm going to rejoin this year to get me moving quickly on Manuscript #2. I have serious doubts about writing the whole thing in a month, especially since the last one took so long. But, the thing is, I'm not doing much more research on this one, and I'd be happy with a decent draft. I don't need a whole done manuscript until mid December, but something that I can send out to friends for feedback by the end of the month would be fabulous. I'm guessing 8,000 words is a fairly challenging goal.
I've got a few more research things to do on this paper, so there may initially be some waiting on the wordcount for the next few days, but I hope to see that wordmeter on the left moving pretty soon and pretty quick.
