I once participated in Nanowrimo (Nation Novel Writing Month). I wrote Back Home which was originally with an old publisher and is now with Totally Bound.
I haven't done it since, 2012 was the Silver nightmare and last year was the start of my burnout which lasted until February this year…
So, it has come to November and I realise actually there is no wriggle room in my schedule to stop and write something different to what I had planned… so this is my November writing list:
Angel In A Bookshop – 40,000 words
Alpha book with not title as yet for AllRomance – 20,000
So, my targets for writing are 10k above Nanowrimo. Potentially 20 working days in November, 60,000 words = 3,000 words a day. I can do this, it appears to be a nice level amount of words that I can accomplish in a day… so fingers crossed. There will also be some editing on Texas 6, and maybe even some additional writing.
December early is my MLR storm book, but I am hoping to get some of that into November as well… What I might do is use my Nano profile to keep an eye on word count.
Are you doing Nano this year?
