The Loom of the NaNo

Hmm, I figured I'd be a bit swamped this year with a few projects of mine but I'm slowly getting coerced into doing NaNoWrimo. Lol For folks out there not familiar with the phenomenon, this is a widespread movement where writers get their butts in gear, push away all excuses and what have you's to sit down and write a complete novel in a month. 50k in this context (which, yes, is a bit small by novel industry standards but just right around some epubs). The focus is just getting words on the page toward your goal which is awesome cause I'm a complete pantser when it comes to writing. I have a book in mind that I've been wanting to write that I think I may enter in NaNo. I also have a short story to start and finish as well as some edits to still get through so this'll be fun seeing where it goes. :-D

Thanks for the info Rae. Shit I can barely write a short story in a month ... I would be beyond pushing it, but I suppose it's worth a try.

I guess this depends on what month. If they are talking next month I don't see how I'll get the The Gift completed and write a 50k word novel at the same time.

I might have to wait till next year for this one.

Np! Yeah it does kind of sneak up on ya. I almost forgot until someone reminded me. Ack.

Yeah you could def make a note of it next year. Or have a mini NaNo during off season. :-D

Rae Lori said…

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…
