The idea is to try for a 50,000 word novel in the 30 days of November. With everything else we have going on in life that can be difficult if not impossible. Figure out how much you can comfortably write in one day and give it a try. Doing that minimum each day can also give you a sense of accomplishment and if you have time for more then add to you own daily quota to up the ante.
A minimum of 1667 words a day gets you to 50,000 but with a full time job that takes ten hours out of my day and health concerns that leave me drained along with the volunteering I'm committed to I don't always have the energy.
I may give it a try, though. Don't know for sure yet.
