NaNoWriMo is such an exciting time of the year! There are only 3 days left until November 1st.
The weather is getting colder, the leaves are falling. Fall and pre-winter always means nano time!
If you aren't sure what NaNoWriMo is then let me fill you in. It is a month long writing competition that lasts from November 1st - November 30th. The goal is to write a 50k novel in 30 days. While that sounds completely crazy, it is totally do-able! The novel obviously won't be publishable directly afterwards. That's when the revision and editing stage begins but you will have your first draft! Without NaNo, I don't know if I would have completed my first draft in 2011. I stepped out of my comfort zone, met tons of really awesome writers, and was declared a winner! If it weren't for NaNo, I would not be a soon-to-be published author!
Every Friday through November, Thea Isis (my fellow nano-virtuosos winner) and I are posting our NaNoWriMo Tips and Tricks on the curiosityquills blog on how to survive nano 2012!
Two pre-nano entries have been posted!
Thea and I talk about how we outline or don't!
What to put in character sketches!
So how many of you are participating in NaNo 2012? I haven't decided yet. I have so much to do right now that I don't think I can write.
1. Finish Editing ATW
2. Finish recording WF
3. Beta read for Fel
4. Finish reading a novel for review
5. Ongoing NaNo Blog Project
6. Help my minions for the Haunted Writing Clinic and Contest!
So much to do....
