NaNoWriMo is upon us! I’m not a well-known blogger or author, so I’ll keep this brief for you.
With only a few days of planning and plotting left, I wanted to give you an idea of what to expect from me. I’m not a prolific blogger, and that won’t be changing anytime soon. I will try to post some updates as to how I’m doing, and what I’m struggling with. Might be kind of fun to do a mini NaNo journal. Most likely what you’ll see are periodic updates, maybe weekly, as to how I’m doing.
For those of you doing NaNo, Literature and Latte has a trial version of the excellent program Scrivener for NaNo up and running. If you are interested, head here and check it out: http://www.literatureandlatte.com/nanowrimo.php.
Finally, some hints for you as well. 1,667 words a day doesn’t sound like much. There are times it takes forever, and others where it takes no time at all. When you get stuck, move on to another spot in the story. Come back to that point when you’re ready. Make sure you join up with your region, and attend some Write-Ins! This might be the most important! They are a blast, get you out in a different environment (which can help your writing) and will introduce you to new people. And last, but not least, have fun. Writing is hard work, but if it’s not fun, it’s not worth it.
Good luck to all of you. May the Words be with you!
