Yup! It’s that time of year again… no, I’m not talking about Halloween. Although it is coming up awfully fast and I’ll blog about that in another post. I’m talking about NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month for those not in the know)
Every year since November 2005, I’ve participated. And every year, bar 2008, I’ve won.
This year, I’ve decided to not be a rebel and write a novel from scratch. 50,000 words – all of them new. In an effort to kickstart a new series.
So far, beyond the main characters and setting, I’ve done little pre-NaNo planning.
Basically, I’m winging it and pantsing. It’s worked quite well in the past and whatever doesn’t work post NaNoWriMo will be edited out.
I’m thinking I might post snippets every day of November so you can see a little of my progress along the way.
Anyone else doing NaNoWriMo? Let me know in the comments below! I could use some buddies throughout the month.
For those who might want to look me up, I go by Rhiannon Brid on the forums.
