My Double-NaNo Plans

I think November is going to be an interesting month for me. I have 50 thousand words left in order to finish I See You. I’m also going to work on the Create A Character Clinic this month, with my objective being to finish it.

ISY is moving along well. It will be my first work every day, because it is the must-finish project — it has to be in my editor’s hands December 1st.

I’ll work on CCC second, and only if I finish my ISY work in a reasonable time. I’m already going to beat NaNo. It would be fun, though, to see if I could clock in 100,000 words or two finished books this month.

Starting point for the day: 49783
Finishing point: 52033 or better

You’ve heard of keeping up with the Jones’es – well, there’s no way I’m keeping up with the … uhm, keeping up with Holly! LOL! I will be pushing all my available free time to the max to finish 50k.

Good luck with both!

Lol, sure they will.

But Nano words can be edited – most of those participating who do aim to get their Nano novels published, use it as kickstart and deal with the ensuing suckiness later. It’s about shutting up your Internal Editor and just get the words out (and no, mine never really shuts up).

I bet Holly has potty trained hers by now so it won’t get in the way of the words. 😉

Yeah NaNo looks pretty sad in comparison! And the kicker is that your 100,000 words will definitely be better than most’s 50,000 words.

Sometimes reading your this is like waching a really good double play – it _looks_ so easy for the people involved but you _know_ how hard it is. Amazing.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
