NaNoWriMo Approaches

And I can't wait to start writing!

I'm almost done with the prep challenge even though the month isn't over yet. I keep doing things ahead of schedule and that's good because I also have other writing to do before November starts. And that writing will help me since I really want to start writing already and writing other things will keep me a little distracted until the very minute November starts, when I plan to start writing.

I have picked what I'm going to write at least.  I picked the Young Adult novel. It was a bit unexpected considering it was one I had put on the "to do later" list with a few novels being set as ones to write first but I'm really looking forward to writing the story. I think even though I didn't win with young adult stories before, this time I'm going to make it.

Plus, I am going to do something different this year. I am going to work on two novels. One I prepared using the NaNoWriMo Prep Challenge and the other is just in my head. No preparation at all. With any luck and a lot of hard work, I should write 100,000 words this year or more, and if I get burned out from one, I can always work on the other, which is something I struggle with when I write 50k really fast; burn out. I even have titles to use for now on both of the novels, Yay!

The current plan is to write:
OttoHahn in E Minor (YA futuristic type novel)
Against the Grain (Adult Romance novel)

Are you ready for NaNoWriMo?
What are you writing?

100k is crazy awesome!

I'm not that ambition--just going for 50k. I'm not ready yet, but I will be come Nov 1st.

I'm doing two novels too. ;) I'll be rooting for you! Not sure if I'd be able to write 100k unless I can do 6k words in one hour...

I can't wait for NaNo! I'm doing a short story project this year, one short story a day (2,000 words) and then I'm also working on finishing a novel I've already been working on (2,000 words a day in that too). It's going to be pretty intense! Good luck with your writing!
