It’s September which means NaNoWriMo is getting closer and closer. If you don’t know NaNoWriMo (or just NaNo) refers to National Novel Writing Month. Writer crazy people like me attempt to write 50,000 words of a novel during November. Like every year since 2011, I am participating in NaNoWriMo this year and I intend to win…again.
(Me, two hours into NaNoWriMo…every year so far)
In order to that, there’s a little preparation I need to do first. So get ready for a September and October filled with writing posts. But I came up with a plan so I don’t spam you all, and so Michelle doesn’t send me angry messages on Facebook telling me to shut up (which she’s never actually done but you never know). I can only post something writing related for every writing goal I get done.
There are a lot I want/need to get done before NaNo starts. I’m hoping this way I can get to all of my goals as well as talk to you guys about my writing more. In case this fails, you should go follow Lori’s writing posts because she’s great. So, those goals?
1. Hit 30k of ‘Ketura’
2. Hit 40k of ‘Ketura’
3. Hit 50k of ‘Ketura’ (the end, maybe?)
4. Research tarot decks for horror/mystery
5. Read through Tied Together with beta notes
6. Plan This Bitter Dark, aka NaNo novel
7. Start research for Celtic Retelling
8. Come up with title for ‘Ketura’
9. Plan horror/mystery novel
There are seven weeks left before November, and so I created nine goals in the hope that I can still do one a week, in case a goal falls through. Some of the goals are easier than others, and no, I’m not talking about the title one (I suck a titles). Hopefully I’ll be seeing you all next week with one of these goals done.
Oh, and you can add me as a writing buddy if you so wish. Are you excited for NaNoWriMo?
