My First NaNoWriMo!!
I am excited to announce that I am participating in NanoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) for the first time! I am a bit nervous, because the idea of Nano is to write a novel in one month. The month they have chosen is November. The only worse month they could possibly pick would be December. I have put Nano off for the last two years, as I was busy with other projects. This year, I was certain until October 15th that I would not be doing Nano this year either. Then I unexpectedly finished edits early for The Hunters. Even though I have several other projects that need editing and a lot of other work: a friend was telling me how she participated in Nano last year, and this year she got to post her book that was published this year as a Nano book. Sales tripled. Hard to say no to free marketing like that! But, I have also had this Infection story eating at my brain (no pun intended ;) ) for the last two years. I decided that if I simply took a month off to write it, then moved it to the back of my to be edited pile, then it would give me motivation to get through my other two projects, AND this one before November next year! That would be awesome!!! At the very least, the story can get out of my head and stop distracting me from all my other projects! So, I will be laying pretty low as I have calculated that I need to write 5,000 words a day to keep to my goal! Have fun in November and be good!
