No WriMo

Unfortunately, I'm not doing NaNoWriMo this year. First time in five years I haven't. :P

It was a deliberate choice, based on other things going on right now. I'm helping Kit during some of the rough early parts of pregnancy. Also have a couple furry projects going on, including two commissions that need to have time set aside. (And I'm not being paid for my writing time -- yet!)

On the writing front, though, I'm still progressing:

  • I've completed rewrites on "A Place Without Walls" and am querying agents. (Finally!) Will post here if there's any exciting news, obviously.
  • I'm outlining my next novel project. I have a setting and sample chapter; still fleshing out major storyline and characters.
  • Working on a couple short pieces, here and there.

So given the multitude of projects, I'm officially skipping NaNoWriMo. I'll miss the rush and community spirit. But, as you see, I have plenty to keep me busy with my own rush. :)

Best of luck to everyone who is participating, though! Remember my two pieces of advice:
  • Shoot for 2000 words per day. 1667 is just the minimum.
  • Caffeine and sleep are totally interchangeable. Honest. ;)

  • FC 2016

  • NaNoWriMo 2015 - Won!

    I started my next novel manuscript during this past month. I used the momentum of NaNoWriMo to get things jumpstarted. I did not expect to reach…
