This year’s NaNoWriMo plan isn’t to beat my record, but to just make it through the month with a passing novel meeting the 50,000 word count. I have a few things that are adding to the challenge.
- Beta Reading
- Parenting/Family life
There’s a few other things in there that add to the time taken from my being able to write. Needless to say, I won’t be able to write as often or in as long of stints as I had been able to the last few years.
In previous years, I’ve posted my daily word count on this site and even included a favorite sentence. This year, I’m going to do things a little differently; you can follow my progress and word counts on Facebook and Twitter, or, if you joined to do NaNo yourself, you can follow and or buddy me. You can also scope out the widgets on the left-hand side of this post. If you want to get exclusives, like teasers/excerpts of my WIP, you can sign up for my newsletter.
I’m pretty excited about this one. I’ve had this story idea running through my mind for several months and have done some planning but not as extensively as I had done for last year’s NaNoWriMo. It’s called: The Last Necromancer. A fantasy, of course! It will be a standalone… I think. That could change once I get started and into the story. But I’ve received some pretty positive feedback over my idea so far which makes me that much more pepped for the actual writing of it.
I have a fail safe for if I end up flying through this year. I have a number of incomplete WIP’s that I work on from time to time. I’ll pick the one that’s calling to me the most and finish that one.
Oh! And I’ve also entered into another contest with my writing buddy, Makayla Yokley (author of The Ruby Curse). Same stakes: Bragging rights and dinner.
Are you ready?
Let it begin!
