National Novel Writing Month. It’s in November.

I’m attempting it for the first time. Partly because I’ve always wanted to write a novel and partly because why not add a huge project to my already crazy workload. 😄

I wish

Ive tried it. Barely made it through 60 pages. Ill finish one day, I swear.

You can write a novel in a month?

The goal is 50,000 words by the end of the month. Not quite long enough, but it makes for a great first draft. The idea is just to get words down on the page and not worry about quality until you start editing after November.

I’ve always wanted to try it before I turn 30. Perhaps this is the year!

Recently had some recruiters reach out to me about copywriter roles. I’m still pretty new to the industry, 2 yrs in, but I figured I’ll ask for a bit higher than what I’m used to. Soooo I asked for 70k. Then talked to a couple people who said that was too high for an intermediate. So my question is, should I be asking for less? I don’t want to switch jobs unless I get an adequate bump in my salary, but also don’t wanna reach too high and get passed over for someone else. Thoughts? 😫
