Preparing for NaNoWriMo 2019
This will be my 7th year participating in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo for short). After last year’s challenges, I said I’d take a break this year … but I couldn’t do it. I’m hooked. The lure is too strong.
It’s not winning–because there’s nothing to “win” other than personal satisfaction and a cool banner for social media–it’s the community that is the draw. There’s nothing like it. People all over the world come together to cheer each other on in this seemingly impossible feat.
For the month of October (also known as Preptober) I’ll be dropping NaNoWriMo-related tasks, challenges, and tidbits on my Facebook Page. If you’ve ever wanted to write a novel, this is the best time to get started! Visit http://nanowrimo.org and sign up. It’s free, fun, and there’s cool merch if you’re into displaying your word-nerdiness.
The first challenge
My first challenge is to figure out WHAT project I’m working on. With the Burned series (still) in revision, I’m feeling the need to work on something completely different for NaNoWriMo.
I have five other projects in various stages of progress, but I’m also considering working on one of two other ideas that have been in the back of my mind for a while. I’ve set today as my deadline to make that decision so I can properly prepare for NaNoWriMo 2019 throughout Preptober.
