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.
