NaNo - 10000 words in an Instant
Okay, that was a tricky title. :P I was planning to do 90K words for NaNo this year, because that's how long I was guessing my first draft to be. However, while working on outline, I am getting the vibe that 90K might be too long, so my new goal is 80K because that is more reasonable for the story. By the time I am done with that draft, things might change yet again, but I am aiming for 80K for now. And you know what, after worrying about how I am going to write 90K, 80K seems like - well, not easy - but definitely more possible. How do you decide how long your book is going to be? Is it just a random guess based on genre initially, or is there method to the madness?
