NaNoWriMo 2017

NaNoWriMo

Hello everyone.  You might have noticed I’ve been not around.  That’s because aside from work I’m participating in this year’s National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), much like I do every year.

There might be an occasional book review but for the most part expect the blog to be quiet this month.

See you in December! (after I’ve recovered)

That’s right, it’s time for 2017’s first Camp NaNoWriMo session!

For those who don’t know what National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and Camp NaNo are, they are each a one-month write-a-thon (I hesitate to say competition since you’re writing for yourself).  The ‘main event’ is in November and is meant to be 50k words of a new project while Camp NaNo is a lot more flexible in terms of goals and projects.

More information can be found here.

My goal this month is 1k a day of words for my long on-going WIP, The Lady’s War (title subject to change five million (more) times).  I’d also like to do an additional 20k on a different project (or projects) to reach a total of 50k, but I don’t know where that additional 20k is going to come from just yet.

But that’s the best part of Camp NaNo – getting to set (and change) your goals right up until winning begins.

Good luck to everyone participating in any way, shape, or form.  May we all have more than we did before April 1st, even if we don’t reach our goals (but I’m rooting for you to hit yours!).

NaNoWriMo 2016

NaNoWriMo

It’s that time of year again.  National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) starts at midnight/12:01 am on Tuesday, November 1.  AKA, tomorrow.  Eek!

I am once again going to be participating, aiming to write a minimum of 50k.  The story I’m working on is a continuation of the story I started two years ago but never managed to finish.  I’m being very careful to note down my exact word count at the start of the month (according to my own word processor) so that I can be as exact as possible when I update my word count, even though I know that the NaNo Validator tends to add words to my count (better than my sister, who loses words off the official counter).

And, like every November, I am of course also in the middle of a play.  So don’t be surprised if blog posts slow to a crawl – or even a halt – while I deal with memorizing lines and blocking, Tech Week, the entire run, plus NaNo.  *Phew*

To everyone else participating, best of luck!  And remember, whether you write 50k or 50 words, that’s still more than you had at the beginning of the month!

Camp NaNoWriMo: April Session

Hello everyone.

I said something a few months ago about National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), found here, and about how I participate both in NaNoWriMo proper in November and also in the Camp NaNo sessions.

Well, it’s time for the April session of Camp NaNoWriMo, and I will be participating, working on a new work that’s been bugging me for about a month or so now.  If any of you are participating, let me know and we can wish each other luck!

For information on Camp NaNoWriMo, check out the home page here.

To those participating, best of luck with whatever your project may be!
