NaNoWriMo 2014

Last year was the first time I officially participated in National Novel Writing Month, and it was tiring but also a lot of fun. Most importantly, although I felt burnt out by the end of it, I was happy that I got so many words down on the page in such a short amount of time. So I’ve decided to participate again this year!

Please feel free to add me as a NaNoWriMo buddy if you’re also participating! You can also check out what I’m working on this year here, only there isn’t much information up since it’s the third in my trilogy. (I can’t exactly post a synopsis for that one before people have even read the first and second, can I? ^^)

I’m also going to be honest: I’m not starting a brand new project on November 1st, as the rules of NaNoWriMo require. I did that last year, and that was a true “win” for me, but I started work on NEVER VEIL 3 last week. My goal is to hit 50,000 words in November. I’ll be tracking those words from 0 on November 1st, even though I’ll already have some of the manuscript completed before that. After basically taking the summer off from writing brand new material (I did write 3000 words of a new work that’s on hold for now, revise NEVER VEIL 2, make small revisions to NOBODY’S GODDESS, and beta read/edit for a friend, though!), I need to work my way back up. I’m excited to get back to these characters I love, although it feels weird working on book three so long before most of you have a chance to read book one!

  1. Added you as a buddy. Also, there is nothing wrong with continuing to write a manuscript for NaNo that you started before November. The only thing they ask is that you only count the words you write in November. So you are not breaking, or even bending, the rules. If you write 50k+ words in November, on top of the words you start the month with, then you have another true win.

    Good luck!

    1. *phew* Thanks for explaining that. I really did think at some point someone told me it had to be a brand-new manuscript, which is why I didn’t even officially participate until last year! Sounds good to me–I definitely planned to only count that month’s words.

      Thanks for the add–I’ll add you back! Good luck to you, too!
