As usual, it’s been awhile since I posted, this time because I was a little busy getting married. 🙂 I was also lucky enough to be asked to beta read a book by another author, and that took a good deal of time. But now all of that is over and National Novel Writing Month is in full swing! Awwwww yeah. You can follow my progress here if you’re so inclined. Last year I finished Prayers to the Wind a week early at 68,000 words, so this year I set my own personal goal to 100,000 words in order to challenge myself. Also because I am apparently incapable of keeping a book under 90,000 words at the absolute least. It seems to be working out rather well so far, as Legend of the Wind (sequel to Prayers) is currently about 40% done according to my outline, and I am sitting pretty at 40k words on Day 11. Providing I don’t have any major setbacks, this book should be done by November 30th.
I love NaNoWriMo. I don’t really have any issues with word-count… once I sit down to write, the words flow very easily for me. But I do enjoy having friends who are writing at the same time to chat with and share snippets of story with. So if you happen to be following this blog and are participating in NaNo as well, feel free to friend me, I’d love to follow your progress and share your joys/sorrows as we embark on this journey together!
