It’s almost that time of year folks, that time of year where writers across the globe all try to hit that magical 50k by the end of November and this year I am absolutely determined to hit the 50k. I don’t view not hitting it as loosing because words were written and thats always a good thing. This year though I am GOING to do it! Last year I got just over 42k and this year I’ve become quite active in my local NaNo group on Facebook and not only have I found a group of friendly and welcoming people I’ve made friends. This group is great for waving the pom poms and cheering each other on and I feel blessed that I live in this area and have found them.
Am I ready for NaNoWriMo 2014? Hell no! lol But I have an idea, I know how it starts, how its ends and the fuzzy bit in the middle is becoming a little clearer each day. As time goes by I do think I am a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants writer but something I’ve learnt from brainstorming with both Chrystalyn and Owen is that having the background details thought out can help and what I’m going to be writing this year is the second book in a trilogy that I’m planning. The first story is what I wrote for NaNo 2013, Earth, After Liberation. I may have mentioned it a few times 😉 And guess what, if all goes to plan the final instalment will be written during NaNoWriMo 2015!
So I am more confident this year, I have a week off from work booked so I can put in a few more hours into this and I haven’t got a weekend away or anything which’ll mean I’m not travelling for two whole days, bonus!
Are you doing NaNoWriMo 2014? Are you ready?
