it’s november so that can only mean one thing – it’s time for national novel writing month. a time when people around the world sit down and try to write a 50,000 word novel. i’m participating again this year, though i’m not really expecting to reach the goal of 50,000 words. but it’s still fun to sit down and just write knowing that it’s just for you, not to be seen by others. of course you always have the option of sharing what you write with others. this year there seems to be a lot of problems with the nano page. it’s very slow and information on how it all works is not as clear as it could be. last year you would upload a txt file and it’d count your words and update your account on how many words you had written so far. but this year you have to put them in manually. i think it just gives you a bar with the number(i’m somewhere around 1600 as i write this) not a breakdown by day as it did last year.
