NaNoWriMo -- Yeah I'm in!

I have been learning so much stuff it only seems appropriate that I also participate in the National Novel Writing Month. It is 30 days of intense writing. I was intimidated by all this at first - but I got a buddy on another forum that is doing this also. I don't know if I will be able to complete the task - but I am up for the challenge.

This also means book two is on hold. Which is fine for the moment, but I need to be careful that I don't loose interest in my characters (as I have in the past) I already have "fans" anxious for the second book. YIKES! Which makes me feel real good, but I don't have any reviews posted anywhere on my first book.

It makes me a little nervous.

Most everyone that reads the first chapter (as the sneak peek) was very anxious for the book, and those that have the book have said that the first chapter has a lot of information. Goes back to that telling and not showing I suppose. Again still learning! I have expanded on my short story that I submitted into a small competition, and I am trying to figure out how to create an Anthology or Series of sort for it. It is a fun piece, and I am curious how far it will go.

I still need to work on a timeline - and get my characters and places set up for my NaNoWriMo or I am going to waste time. hmmmm guess I should do that before the NaNoWriMo starts!

  1. I've signed up too. I'm very excited, and nervous. It seems a little daunting (okay, very daunting), but we can do it :)
