The second Monday of NaNoWriMo is here.
Last week, I was ahead when I posted. Now, I’m just right on track. I hate that. I loved being ahead and not having a lot of pressure. But, my niece was around this weekend and I didn’t have time. I knew that was a possibility.
I know, I’m a big advocate of making time to write. Well, this weekend I was guilty of not. If my niece visits again before the end of the month ( I think she is…), I will have to make time. There is no way I’m not going to succeed in NaNoWriMo.
I love November. I really do. I don’t know why I never thought of participating in NaNoWriMo before. I’m getting such a rush from it! All four of my main characters are driving me insane, but hey, characters are supposed to do that, right?
I have almost 18,000 words for my NaNoWriMo project. Just 15 minutes is making all the difference, it seems. I’m doing a lot of it late at night, but I won’t be able to tonight — not when I have to be up at 5:00 tomorrow morning for work!
I’m not sure what the end project will look like, but I do know it won’t be that great. Quantity over quality is the rule for NaNoWriMo. The editing comes later.
I will be buckling down on editing Days of the Kill after NaNoWriMo is over. I’ve tended to make The Healing a priority this month writing wise. After November is over, I probably will put it away until I send Days of the Kill off to an editor and work in it while I’m waiting for Days of the Kill to come back with edits.
Well, I guess that’s it for Monday. Stay tuned next Monday for another NaNoWriMo update…and be sure to check out The Road to Being Published on Wednesday!
