NaNo starts November 1.
I completed (I won!) NaNo last November. If you aren’t familiar with NaNo, “winning” means that I completed 50k words in the month of November of 2011. That manuscript later became Nelson and Cora: The Beginning.
Then, I completed JuNoWriMo – same concept, but in June.
And, then …
I haven’t even looked at the draft I wrote in June. That’s four months that 50k words have just been sitting there.
What have I been doing? Well, I have managed to edit and publish Rich Fabric, which is amazing and wonderful and has been such a great experience and the profits all go to the Twilight Wish Foundation. And, I’m proud to share that when the first royalty payment comes in, a donation will be made for over $100.
But, that’s not a new novel, and that’s not a completed manuscript, and that’s not a lot of other things.
NaNo starts the day after tomorrow.
I have NOTHING. No story brewing, no notes that can spark an idea.
I have a blank page.
But, I’m giving it a whirl and we’ll see what happens. Yep, that means I’m back to my pantster tendencies.
