Tips for Surviving NaNoWriMo

AFEF6F0A-4D90-44AC-9B0D-2E4402E999C9

Yes. It’s October and you know what that means. NaNoWriMo is coming.

It’s October 15th which means there’s just over two weeks until November is upon us.

Eek! Don’t ask me what I’m writing cause I don’t know yet.

Having participated in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) since 2005, I like to think I’ve picked up a tip or two along the way.

So, I’ve decided to share.

Tip #1: Pace yourself. Writing 50,000 words in 30 days may seem like a massive undertaking and leave you feeling completely overwhelmed, but the truth is it doesn’t have to. 1,667 words per day is completely doable, and if you break it down into even smaller goals… say 834 words in the morning and 834 words at night it’ll be an even easier goal to smash.

Tip #2: It’s never to early to kill off a character. In NaNoWriMo… anything goes. I once killed of a main character in the first chapter. Surprisingly, it worked and pushed the other characters forward. Death scenes take up a lot of words. So, does sex.

Tip #3: Editing is for December. Turn off your inner editor. Yes, it’s hard, but completely doable.

Tip #4: Turn off distractions. Procrastinating is the worst enemy to any NaNoer. If it helps set a timer, and turn off the WiFi. Research is fun, but time consuming.

Tip #5: Have fun. Because if you’re not having fun while writing, there’s really no point.

And there it is. I hope you find these tips helpful.

Motivation Monday

 

New Monday = New Week!

Monday’s are for fresh starts! Who is with me?

Currently, I have Pendragon awaiting further edits, A Rueful Equinox sitting at just over 2700 words and… A Curse of Thorns & Roses is in the planning stages. And that’s just my writing projects. I’ve also been editing short stories, creating various content which I hope to share with you soon. As for my little Monday ritual it usually involves coffee and cake.

I’ll be sharing future progress and if you happen to have made any of your own, please do share in the comments… no matter how big or small it was!

And don’t worry if you didn’t make much progress today is a new day and the start of a new week.

WIP Wednesday

It’s time to SHARE what you’re working on!

The rules are pretty simple, if you want to play along.

Just share up to 500 words in the comments from something you’ve been working on.

This is taken from something new I’m working on.

 

The ladies of the house were versed in all the fine arts. Music, dance, flower arranging and necromancy. Nowadays there wasn’t much call for raising the dead, but once my grandmother said, it was a perfectly acceptable line of work.

I’d never had reason to want to bring someone back from the dead until now.

Except that, wiser heads in my family forbade it. Too much could go wrong.

As I sat on the floor, at the center of a circle of salt with four candles burning at each of the four directions and began to chant, my black cat, Raven, darted into the room disrupting the circle of salt and setting back my spell work.

“Raven!”

It’s not much… but its a project I’m very excited about.

 

Motivation Monday

 

New Monday = New Week!

Monday’s are for fresh starts! Who is with me?

Not to mention all the new goals and new plans waiting to be unveiled.

So, what did you accomplish? Good things I hope.

I did a lot this past week and I’ve got a lot of balls up in the air to get on with over the next week.

We’ll see how productive I am next week.

What’s your Monday ritual? Did you make one? 

I did!

What about you?

I’ll be sharing my ritual along with weekly progress reports in subsequent Monday blog posts.

Share the progress you made in the comments no matter how big or small it was!

And don’t worry if you didn’t make much progress today is a new day and the start of a new week.

Just work the steps from this post and you’ll be on your way!

Pendragon is DONE!

pendragon is done

The beast is done! Alright, so once I got into it the story itself was a lot of fun to write and hardly a beast, but its definitely been one hell of a journey to get to this point.

It’s been over a year since I’ve even talked about this story in any depth in my blog.

Though, I did share a bit of a sneak peek with you guys the other Wednesday.

So, what’s next for this little 5k Arthurian tale? Well its currently in the queue awaiting deliberation as to whether it gets accepted or rejected into an anthology. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I did it justice.

If not, well I’ll tweak it a little and drag it up to 6k and it be edited again before I self publish it and it becomes the third and final installment of my teensy Camelot Saga.

And if you haven’t read Morrighan and Le Fay? Now’s your chance to catch up.

You can pick them both up in the digital only duology, Raven Conspiracy Available Here!

That’s over 12,000 words for only $2.99!
