Nanowrimo is just around the corner and I’m going to get my butt into gear and win it!
You might know that I started a novel – YA Irish fairy tale retelling – earlier this year but it quickly fizzled out. I still love the idea but I don’t have the inspiration. So for a few months this has been an excuse for my lazy self not to write much of anything other than the odd short fanfic.
But I don’t want to be that person. I want to put my writing skills to good use. I want to write a second novel and be proud of it. I want to one day be published. Not keep putting the stories I want to write off as I’m afraid no one will care. I’m putting that behind me now.
I’m doing world building and prep until the end of the month and I’m putting some things into place. I know what I’m going to write though I also know that I’m a major pantser so will come up with a lot of stuff on the spot. I’m not much of an outliner.
But I have a few goals:
- Be more social when it comes to writing.
- Write weekly catch up posts on how I’m doing.
- Don’t let the fact I’m busy all week stop me from reaching 50k.
I’ve taken the 1st off of my course so I can sit down and get a proper start. A good few hours of writing because the 2nd is my birthday and I know I won’t be writing then.
So wish me luck guys and comment below if you’re also planning on participating.
If you’re interested in connecting or what I’m writing you’ll find me on Nano here. So feel free to send me a friend request!
