So NaNo is almost here again! How exciting.
This year I completed Camp NaNo in August and wrote 70k (plus 58 words!) and had a ball. I didn’t plan it at all, which is something I now realise I should never ever do because everything goes to shit and I’m left scrambling about for any kind of direction. It was terribly fun, but not something I want to repeat any time soon.
For November’s NaNo I’m going to redraft last year’s NaNo. Which is kind of cheating but I am super hardcore like that, yo.
My story features parallel universes and lesbians! It’s pretty fun to write but there are some spooky things in there. When I write at night time I get too scared to go to the toilet because I will clearly be eaten by DEMONS.
Here’s my profile. We should probably be friends!
I also took the liberty of making a super-terrific cover for this year’s novel. I was thinking maybe desktop publishing could be my back-up career.
Hi Alison! First, I LOVE your cover. Well, I love tea too, so maybe that explains my fondness. It looks like a cuppa with a splash of milk, or maybe I’m seeing my tea in that cup, steaming even, yes!
Second, I’ve added you as a buddy. Yeah for NaNo…
Third, thanks for following my blog! I’ll be back to see how things go. 🙂 May October be full of plotting goodness. I’ve pantsed a few manuscripts, and sometimes it works. Sometimes not so much, ha ha.
Hehe, thank you! Ah, yes. It could be anyone’s tea! The steam represents diversity! Or something. It is quite profound, if I do say so myself. 😛
Oh yay, I’ve added you too. 🙂
And a plotting October to you, too! Unless you’re pantsing, in which case I hope there is no plotting whatsoever 😛
I wouldn’t call redoing a prior NaNo cheating, to be honest. Plenty of people are redoing theirs, and last I checked, it worked for Night Circus author Erin Morgenstern. 🙂
Also, I approve of the Awesome Face smiley. 8)
Yah, not that I really mind ‘cheating’, NaNo is what you make it and I don’t really want another first draft I have to do heaps of work on.
