Okay, it’s official. I’m going to do Nanowrimo this year. I haven’t done it seriously since 2006, which is when I wrote the first, very rough draft of Demon Princess. Since then, November and my writing schedule haven’t really lined up perfectly. Nano only works if:
1) You don’t mind writing an underdeveloped idea really fast that will need A FREAKING LOT of work to fix, or
2) You’re about to start a book that has already been brainstormed and plotted and is ready to rock.
Luckily, this year I’m falling into category #2. I’ve found that while I can write pretty darn fast, I need to be ready to rock. I can’t be second guessing plot or characters. Their motivations and goals need to be pre-planned. When all that lines up, then start yer engines.
I’m going to be writing the first draft of STORMY WEATHER, my second Harlequin Blaze. My goal is 55K words.
If you’re also participating and you’d like to friend me, you can find me on Nano under the incredibly original username of Michelle Rowen.
