This November, I’m attempting 3 goals at once: Win NaNoWriMo (by writing 50,000 words on my novel in the month of November), raise $1000 for a cause I’m passionate about (click for my fundraising page), and get at least one list item sponsored (will be accomplished if the fundraising goal is met).

Currently, I’m a little behind where I should be at NaNoWriMo. By the end of today I should have 20,000 words written, at the time of this writing I have written 15,885 words. However, the story itself is coming along nicely and I’m enjoying the process of writing. (You can follow along with my progress by looking at the widget in the sidebar, or by following me on Twitter (@GoalListTweets).

I am not meeting my fundraising goal at all. So far, the only money donated through my page is the $11 that I donated. National Novel Writing Month, while a funny name, is a legit organization that helps with children’s literacy and self-expression. In a world where suicides, school murders, depression, and poor self-esteem are so prevalent, I am very excited to support an organization that tells people their story is valuable and helps them learn the skills they need to express themselves in healthy ways. Please join with me in giving at least $1 to support their efforts (it’s tax-deductible).

Goals to complete by the end of Wednesday, November 19:

  • Catch up, then stay on track with my NaNoWriMo word count. By the end of November 19, I should have just over 31,600 words.
  • Raise $500 to support the nonprofit organization National Novel Writing Month, helping them continue their work in classrooms and online. Click here for my fundraising page.
