Since the November question is about NaNoWriMo and I’m participating this year, I decided to focus on that for my ISWG post this month.
Win or not, do you usually finish your NaNo project? Have any of them gone on to be published?
This is the third year (of on and off participation) that I’ve taken part in NaNoWriMo.
I won in 2014 with my novella, Demon Hunt. I definitely finished that one and published it before the end of that year. It was a rush (pull-your-hair-out) kind of job with that one because I wanted to give it away free as a Christmas gift to all my new readers. For a rush job, it turned out pretty well, but I’m doing re-edits on it. I might even re-release it with a new cover and print version as well in the coming year.
I missed 2015, but I did both Camp NaNo’s and the big event in November of 2016. I won both Camps, but not the big one. That year I mainly worked on my Shadow Stalker serial, which is still ongoing. I’m up to Episode 21 now, but I’ve put it on hold while I work on my new novel series.
Which brings us to this year. I did Camp NaNo in April this year, but brain fog kept me from winning. I worked on Shadow Stalker then as well, and never finished the episode I was working on until after April.
Now is the big event. I’m working on the first book in my A God’s Deception series, Defender of the Chosen. Since I only write Monday through Friday, I’m setting my goal at 2500 words a day. Today was my first writing day, and I wrote 2588 words, so I’m off to a good start. Wish me luck!
How about you? Are you participating this year? If so, feel free to add me as a buddy: RScatts and I’ll add you back. We can help each other through the craziness! 😀
I’ve decided I’m definitely participating in NaNoWriMo next month, so the rest of this month will be spend preparing.
I’m going to start writing the A God’s Deception series, so I’m planning the entire series first. So far I’ve got all of the main characters worked out, and I’m plotting events at the moment. They’re all out of order, so it’s going to be fun trying to put them in some kind of order, but once I do that, I’ll have a good idea of how many books the series will be.
They’re all out of order, so it’s going to be fun trying to put them in some kind of order, but once I do that, I’ll have a good idea of how many books the series will be. I’m estimating between 4 and 6 at the moment, but depending on how things go it could be more.
So it’s safe to say that Shadow Stalker and my other serial are on hold for the time being… at least until December. I need a break from it though to get my creative juices flowing again. Then maybe I can get over that hurdle and finish it.
While I’m writing for NaNoWriMo next month, I’ll be posting occasional snippets on Twitter and Facebook using #AGodsDeception, so save the hashtag and check it out beginning November 1st. I’ll post at least once a day as I’m writing. Also keep an eye out here for my Saturday Sneak Peeks where I’ll share some of what I’m writing.
It’s going to be a crazy, exciting month. I hope you’ll join me!
