NaNoWriMo Update

Well, 

Here we are. Ten days in. How much NaNoWriMo words have I written this month?

Zero.

Yup. None. But All is not lost!

I have not been idle. I have been working hard getting Lost Hope ready for a 1st Edition release. That just means that I will do my best to get the book edited and such myself then relaunch the crowd funding with some minor adjustments to the rewards offered. 

When that is complete I will be able to send out to an editor using the funds from the CF as well as any profits made from sales. That ensures a better book for second edition AND makes a collector item for those who purchase it as a 1st Edition!

Everyone says as long as you have a great story that doesn’t read like it was written by a third grader, you can be successful as an indie writer.

Well, I am about to test that later this week. Thank you everyone for your continued support!

And it Begins!

Launch Day.

In The Mouth of Madness (hehe appropriate that movie is about a writer!)

NaNoWriMo has officially been going for 10 hours and 18 minutes. 

Are you participating this year? Pantser? Plotter?

Last year was my first NaNo. I had a blast! For the first time in years of wanting to be a writer, I finished a draft. All the way. It was the best feeling in the world!

I strongly recommend it to anyone who has dreams of being a writer but can’t seem to move that one step closer to completing a piece. The whole process teaches you so much about your own personal writing style, when you work best, What motivates you to write and more. 

Last year I learned that the best time for me to write was at night after my kids have gone to bed. I learned that no matter how many books on writing you may read, there is no One True Way with writing. What works for me may drive you up a wall and you would never manage the 1667 words per day needed to reach the 50,000 word goal that is NaNoWriMo.

When do you write best? 

I’ll be doing daily posts as well as a vLog every night after writing is done. Hope to see your comments!
