NaNo No Go #NaNoWriMo2016

Like I do every year, I participate in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).  It’s been good to me in the past, it helped me write Stealing the Wolf Prince, my RONE award winning debut novel.  Book 2 in the series, Deceiving the Bandit Lord, was also a NaNoWriMo winner.

Have I Outgrown NaNoWriMo?

I’ve participated in NaNoWriMo for 12 years and this year will mark the 10 year anniversary of my first win.  It’s been a regular in my writing routine that there is never a question about whether I’ll plan a novel for November.  But now that I’ve won more frequently than I’ve lost, do I need NaNoWriMo anymore?

Hey folks, we are hitting mid month and I’m behind but if I can write 2k a day, I should be ok.  I took a day off from work toward the end of the month I plan to use to write like a maniac.

As you can see by the graphic, Breathless Press is having a NaNoWriMo Critique weekend.  I’ve participated in a past event with Stealing the Wolf Prince and got some helpful feedback and a fast pass.  So follow the instructions, keep writing, and have fun.  I’ll share my critique when I’ve received it.  ❤

NaNoWriMo 2014

The Rocker Next Door

Rocker Next Door-001It’s November and that means National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo.  It’s been a writing tradition for me for the past 9 years.

This year I am writing a paranormal romance called The Rocker Next Door.  To the left you will see the mock cover I made using some free stock photos and some scrap booking software.  To the right, in the side bar, you’ll see my word count.  I’m already behind!

But no worries.  Unlike past years where I stressed and freaked out about the task of hitting 50k words in 30 days, I’m really chill.  My biggest goal is to write every day and complete the story.  I have my outline and my character profiles to keep me moving forward.  I’m still waiting on edits from my publisher so if those arrive this month, that’s ok too.

Good luck to everyone that’s participating.  It’s crazy, zany, and ludicrous but tons of fun.  Remember, it’s all about getting the book written, you can edit and perfect it laters.
