I meant to let my blog readers know what was happening before it happened, but life got crazy and it didn’t get done. So here is a catch-up-and-announcements post.
First of all, I finished Camp NaNoWriMo! Woohoo! 50 thousand wards, and just a few hours before midnight on the 30th. Why did I finish so late, after going so fast? Well…. Continue reading
A new novel of mine! I’ve learn so much since I was writing True Freedom back in NaNo of 2011. Writing technique is coming slowly to me, and I’m learning about story structure and other things.
So this novel is one I am going to stick with. I am very much a plot-first writing. I don’t do well with not knowing where I am going or how it’s going to end. I ponder my ideas long before I start, and then I set it down to a detailed plan with a specific ending.
This is what I am doing with this novel. If I know where to go, I can finish it.
For me to write like crazy! 😀
Now, you’re probably wondering what I am talking about. I’m always writing, just not usually at this pace. That’s because Camp NaNoWriMo has started.
Camp NaNo is just like regular NaNoWriMo – a writing program with the goal of 50,000 words in a month. Usually it takes place in November. But there’s this wonderful thing called Camp NaNo. The same thing, only in June and August. Continue reading
I know this post is delayed, but oh well… Here it is anyway. =)
I finally got 50k on NaNoWriMo. That is the farthest I have ever got in writing a story. My story isn’t finished yet, but it’s really nice to get that far, and I really loved the NaNo experience. If you are a new writer and thinking about doing NaNo, DO IT! You’ll still probably get more writing done in a month then you ever would have before. =D
Have any of you young writers out there heard of NaNo? (http://www.nanowrimo.org/en/about/whatisnano) If not, you should! It’s a program for writers, a challenge to write 50 thousand words in just the month of November. This is my first year doing it, and I’m at 21260 words. I’ll be posting regular updates on my progress!
