Hi Cathy from Laura in Tucson!
I write contemporary romance and have actually finished Nanowrimo once although I’ve tried several times. I nailed 50K last summer. August 2020 meant record drought and heat for us in the southwest, so I spent a lot of time happy to be indoors and self-isolating as our COVID infections rose.
Most months, I find 5oo words per day a comfortable spot, and I’m working up to committing to 50K in November.
