I've never been able to NaNoWriMo because I always write longhand and don't know the word count until I transcribe it days or weeks later. Seems awfully stressful anyway.

You could count a full page of words and multiply it by the number of total pages. That would give you an approximate word count, but for the NaNo site you have to copy/paste the work into their word counter, which means, yeah, you'd have to transcribe it.

If you don't care about an "official" win, though, the above method works pretty well to give you a feeling of taking part in the event.

NaNo can be stressful but it's also hella exciting. I really enjoy doing it, but the past three years I haven't had a story big enough to work on for it.

Even though I know it'll be cold and damp and miserable, I'm so looking forward to winter! Lovely frost and hot spiced drinks and flannel sheets. Plus I can wear all my heavy coats and scarves.

How the hell did I manage to spend ninety dollars at a fabric store without buying any fabric?
