NaNoWriMo, here I come….

Uh oh, here we go with another attempt at National Novel Writing Month. Though I don’t believe i will be as successful as I was last year due to time constraints, but I’m not here to win. I’m here to write. I doubt I will be able to complete the 50k words that NaNoWriMo considers a win, but if I’m lucky I’d like to be able to do at least half that.

I am trying to challenge myself a little this year by writing in a point of view I am not totally comfortable with. Most of my books or long form stories are told in the first person, so I’m going to try and toss that out the window this year. Wish me luck.

My title this year is tentatively called “Perhaps, Mina.” If I had to classify it, I plan for it to be a paranormal romance, though I’m hoping it will have some other elements to it as well. We’ll have to see where the characters take me. The story will start off with one of the sentences from my recent “Seven Days Of Sentences,” but I’m not saying which one….yet. 😉

Now something I won’t be able to do this time around is post what I write everyday. I will still let you know of my progress as much as I can, but I won’t be able to post the story as it’s written, as I did with last year’s entry “Time Of Our Death.” However, when the month is over, depending on how much I’ve actually accomplished, I will get to posting the story I hope. Still, because it has a vampire theme, I may wait until my other long form bloodsucking tale “vampire boys of summer” is complete and posted to avoid confusion between the two. Well just have to wait and see, I suppose.

Ok, so anyway, I hope you all will wish me luck this year, and if you are doing NaNoWriMo as well, feel free to let me know and I’ll try to help cheer you on as well. Have a great Halloween night and I’ll see you in November. 🙂

  1. Best of luck on NaNoWriMo!! I think the real goal is to get writers inspired and to write. The 50,000 words is an arbitrary number to help push people to write as much as possible. I think if you’re participating, as long as you’re writing, you’re achieving the intent of the challenge. Can’t wait to hear how it goes.

    1. Thank you! I agree with you on the goal. I completed it last year but I became obsessed with word count, and I think in some ways it altered the story’s flow. This year I just want to write something that keeps me wanting to write for the telling of the tale. Thanks for the well wishes 🙂

  2. Good luck with NaNoWriMo!

    I considered doing it this year, but I have two off-line stories that have been sadly neglected while I’ve been busy with Ambrose and Elsie. If I start another long one, those two off-lines will start sending me harassing e-mails. 😆

    1. I know what you mean. I’m wanting to finish Vampire Boys Of Summer, but because it is so involved I felt like I couldn’t finish it off as part of NaNoWriMo. Instead, I had another idea I had considered for vampire Boys, but it requires a more traditional vampire, so that’s what I’m working on this month. I hope I don’t get confused, lol

      1. That sounds intriguing. I’m looking forward to when/if you share it over here.

        On a side note, if I were to do NaNoWriMo, I know what story I’d write: the whole Raven and Miss Farlington backstory. Of course, I’d have the unfair advantage of certain parts already being pre-written as flashbacks in my Ambrose and Elsie story. But I think I’d rather save that for after I finish Ambrose and Elsie’s story. 🙂
