“So, how’s it going?” I hear you ask from beyond the internet. Unless that was a ghost. In which case, get out of my pipes.
I started October with the assertion that I would be committing to NaNoWriMo (again) and would be finishing the novel I’ve been working on. Really, I need to finish it so that I can move on to other projects.
Remember my list?
-Reread my novel (currently at 65,000 words) and refamiliarize myself with these characters and their voices (I’ve been away for an embarrassing amount of time).
-Outline (even if it’s vague) the rest of the book ON PAPER. It’s in my head, but it’s not helping anyone there.
-Get my NaNoWriMo.org profile back in shape. You all can follow me on there as the month progresses. I’ve set my “goal” at 50,000 words — not sure that much will be necessary to finish the novel, but it gives me a goal in any case.
-Create talking points for future blogs and secret audio projects about writing.
Prep is going pretty well! I finished that chapter the other day and have been noodling the plot ever since. I’m working on re-reading the book still, but I’m already feeling a little more comfortable with where I am and what I’m working on. And, as I’m typing this post, my other screen shows the work I’m doing right now on the outline. (I’m not going to show it, but I promise it’s there.)
I did also update my NaNoWriMo.org profile. I’m going to do my best to put in my progress on the site as I write during November. Hopefully all of these things will help keep me motivated during the month!
Excited to get started!
