I just signed up for round two of 70 Days of Sweat. The following is the comment I left there which delineates my commitment:

I'm in again. I will be working with the same story world as last time. The work I did during round one helped me figure out that it was most definitely not a single novel. But the story arcs of several of the characters are so entwined they keep wandering in and out of each other's stories so I need the freedom to roam among them which NaNo doesn't give.

I am still planning to participate in NaNo concurrently with 70 Days if I can settle on a story arc for which I've not yet done any substantial scene work but is (or can be) thoroughly prepped by 11/1. Which is the rub, if I stay inside the same story world. Because of of the work I did for round one and the last three NaNoWriMo few of the potential stand-alone novels qualify on both points.

My main goal is to add something of value to this story world every day. Sometimes that will be narrative or dialog that can be quantified by word count. Not always. Though I would like my average to be 700 wpd. As for a completed rough-draft--that depends on what I do for NaNo. I could conceivably complete one of the novels already in progress by Jan 15 if I didn't have to commit 50K to a brand new project.

I was going to elaborate but I'm wore out. I will at least clarify that I am referring to my Fruits of the Spirit story world. And that the novel for which I see a glimmer of light at the end of a very long tunnel is the one I worked hardest on for round one of 70 Days and the one that I've been posting excerpts from for Friday Snippets. Faye's story AKA The Substance of Things Hoped For.
