STOP LEAVING WRONG ANSWERS FOR YOURSELF.

Also, you don't have to do 50K. You can make a smaller goal, or just do what you do.

I really want to try for 50k, especially since I wouldn't be trying for a novel. Hmm. Would it be cheating to count the essay I should be writing?

Pfft. Make your own Nano. It's like a Choose Your Own Adventure only more better.

That's what I did my first Nano. I'm slowly evolving and may eventually write a novel, but at least now I'm planning 2 semi-vaguely-related short stories!

And I mean "bitch" in the nicest way possible. And by that, I mean "Can't you count your schoolwork during the month of November toward the 50K goal?" (:

Well, the essay I should be writing is about Jungian theory, so that counts as fiction, right? :P

I don't see why it even has to be limited to fiction! I think any 50,000 words you write, whether for academia or employment or pleasure should count. Frankly, I would be surprised if I do not write 50,000 words of non-personal-communication in November, though it'd be incredibly hard to add up word counts of work emails and memos and spreadsheets and code and and and...
