It’s here, kiddies! NaNo time. Fifty thousand words in thirty days or less. I got my plan, a pseudo plot, my Write or Die and my NaNo account reset for my fourth year. I plan to win again. Here’s my strategy, not 100% how NaNo is supposed to be done but I don’t care. As long as I get 50k, I’m good.
WIP 1: Purely Relative (The P.U.R.E. #1.5) — Needs about another 5000 words
WIP 2: Succubus Steam (story #3 in Lila’s Succubus Chronicles) — needs about another 7000 words
WIP 3: Cruise Ship Mistress (no groaning! I’m going Mills and Boon here!) — remaining 38,000 words to get it started. I’d like to eventually get it to at least the full 50k as a stand-alone novel, but we’ll see.
Let the games begin in a few more hours!
Novel edits are ALL DONE!!!! Yay!
My alter-ego’s anthology releases 12/9. Yay!
Plenty of blog posts this week so I handily met that goal. Yay!
And…I’m heeding the siren’s call and writing that short story that gels a little more every time I sit down and start to write and in those quiet moments in my shower, my car, gazing out my window….and oddly enough watching Deadliest Catch with the Silverback. There’s a hint in that last bit.
I’m leaving the NaNo win “stamp” up for a while longer cause I just like to look at it. I got my winner’s t-shirt the other day and wore it on Friday, chill in the air be damned on my short-sleeve covered arms. It’s a very soft, comfy t-shirt if anyone’s on the fence. (I got the unisex one, not the skin tight ladies one.)
My goals and current stats for this round are on my ROW80-4 page.
