#ROW80 Rd 4 — wk 5, rpt 1

NaNo has begun!

I am off to a GREAT start.  Day one closed with my having logged 3115 words over two documents–one short story (and a very strange one at that) and one… I don’t quite know what to call it, but it’ll be the “glue” or transitional text to hold all the other short stories together in my anthology.

I also edited several chapters of my novel on day one of NaNo.  I think I have about 8 more chapters to go, then tackle the edits for the three added scenes, then do an overall review of my edits, then ship off.

Did I mention I get to reveal my novel’s cover and back blurb on November 14th?  I do!  I can’t wait to share it.  I think my publisher, J Taylor, did an outstanding job capturing the tone of the novel and in helping me with the back blurb, never mind who did most of the heavy lifting **cough**J Taylor**cough**.  A little less than two weeks to go.

My goals and current stats for this round are on my ROW80-4 page.

The Linky site lists other participants’ progress reports.  Give them some encouragement too.

  1. Congratulations! I can’t wait until I’m past this editing period and can rip it up with new work myself.

    Looking forward to seeing your cover.

    • THanks, Camille. I would like my editing out of the way so it’s not hanging over my head but I think my pace with both is manageable so I allowed myself to do NaNo again this year.

    • No worries, Eli. We’re only a couple of days in. There’s plenty of time to jump on the wagon and drive that mule train. Alas there’s plenty of time to fall off it. I don’t really relax a little until I hit 35k.

  2. Woo hoo! A great NaNo start.

    And what exciting news about your novel. I’m looking foward to 11/14, too.

    Hope the words keep flowing. Just consider me your personal NaNo ROW80 cheerleader. Although I’m writing, I’m not NaNo-ing this time.
