NaNoWriMo 2014!

So who’s up for doing NaNoWriMo with me this year?

This will be my third year, and I use October as a time to plant the seeds for November writing. πŸ™‚ My plan this year is another novel, more literary fiction and using some devices I haven’t used in my previous two novels–I don’t think, anyway. I have a bunch of “seeds” of ideas, but I’m not sure how they will all come together into a cohesive whole.

I write best when I’m on deadline, and NaNo is a great way to impose a deadline, to get those ideas out and onto paper. If you’ve never done it, I encourage you to try, because it’s an AMAZING experience. The first year I just had an idea; I didn’t do much more than that to “prep.” As I went along I did research into how you’d appeal to the Supreme Court (go lawyer friends!), Korean food and time zones, andΒ Eugene Onegin, but really, the main thing is just to sit your butt down and WRITE. Make it a priority. Make it happen.

If you’d like to get a taste of what I wrote about the past two years, you can go here. Use the drop down menu at the top for things on specific novels.

  2. I’m doing nano as well. I haven’t decided if I will start something new that I came up with in the gazebo or rework the plot for another project. Good luck and have fun writing. Dancing Thunder from nano.
