NaNoWriMo, Round 2

Tuesday, November 1, 2011

November is officially upon us, boys and girls! I can hardly believe it. November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and this is the second year in a row that I will be participating. Although last year I procrastinated for much of the month and finished in a down-to-the-wire sprint, I'm hoping to be a bit more on top of things this time around.

I highly doubt that I will be posting regularly around here over the next 30 days, but I hope to give updates on my progress as I suffer through this crazy endeavor. I'm going for my first steampunk story, which I'm very excited about (even if I don't know exactly where the story is going yet). The plan is to try and front load my word count as much as possible so I don't wind up spending my entire Thanksgiving break holed up in my room glued to my laptop. My goal is 2,000 words a day. Fingers crossed!

Any other NaNo participants out there? Want to be my writing buddy? Or maybe chat with me on the NaNo forums? Then check out my NaNoWriMo profile page! I'll also be tweeting my misery (@loganturner) and getting in on those excellent @NaNoWordSprints motivational writing sprints.

Basically, don't worry if you don't hear much from me this month. It means I'm holed up being creative...or crying in a corner at my failures. Either way, it's bound to be interesting.

Best of luck Logan! I will definitely be around for misery tweeting. I'm also up for misery emailing, should that need occur as well.


Logan and Amanda- I'm doing NaNo, this is my second year. It's going well today. But it's a little harder with a busier blog. Still, I'm confident I can make the word count. It's whether or not anyone will want to read it! That's what I'm sure I won't reach!

I'm breaking out my pom-poms and motivational chocolates for you! I still want to read your last NaNoWriMo book. :)

I will miss you! Don't be gone *too* long or I will go through Logan-withdrawals.

Yay! Good luck Logan. It's the best when you don't know exactly where the story is going, you'll be in for a few surprises for sure!

I can't not be your NaNo buddy. That would be so very wrong. I will hold your hand while you cry if you hold my hand when I go through my crises of confidences. I hope to see you around a little though, because I miss you already.

Steampunk! I'm so excited for you! Hope everything goes well and I look forward to updates.
