It’s 8 days into NaNoWriMo, also known as November, the month between Halloween and Christmas, and (my personal favorite) “what the fuck is wrong with me? Why am I doing this to myself AGAIN?”
But eight days in and I haven’t quit. I’ve got a bit on the NaNo Rebel side, and added a short story of approximately 4K words to my count, but it was completely written within the last 3 days, so it counts as new words. Today, I’m caught up to my word count goal for NaNo, but a hair behind what I wanted my personal goal to be. But that’s OK. I have several days this week where I know for a fact I’ll have 6 to 8 hours of work time. And more where it’ll be around 4 hours. That’s the advantage of being a full time writer, I suppose.
How is everyone else doing on their NaNo? I have a few friends who are doing it for the first time this year, and they are rocking it out! I’m eager to share our projects at the end of the month. That is, if they’re not too shy!
In other news, in addition to working on NaNo and our secret short story project, I’ve also been maintaining edits on the Parliament of Twilight: Episode 2. It’s looking to be done before the end of the month. Then it’s just sending it on the rounds of beta reading, editing, re-betaing, editing one more time, and the final read-through before it gets formatted and published. Fingers crossed that it will be out for Christmas, but at least the pre-order will be up by then with the Episode itself being out just after the first of the year.
Soon, we will be doing a cover reveal. Not sure of the date, but watch our Facebook page for details!
