Writing isn’t a career, it’s a passionate hobby that will never leave me alone until I write down every last word of this story constantly screaming inside my head, “LET ME OUT!” So I do. I write. And what happens next always boggles my mind. You actually read my inner thoughts. I hope you enjoy whats coming next because it’s going to be a whirl wind.
WHAT’S GOING ON IN MY LIFE THESE DAYS…
NANOWRIMO2020 IS HERE!
What is Nanowrimo you ask? It’s National Novel Writing Month. Two years ago I wrote my first draft of A Trial of Petals and Poison (Book 2 in the Praetorian Rising Series). This year, I will be doing a little bit different of a process for this Nano, I’ll be EDITING instead of furiously writing. So this year will be a NANOEDMO!
I will be starting at 298,000 words in my third draft, and throughout November I will be whittling down #ATOPAP to get it down to a sizable version for my Editor to take in March. Needless to say that I will be editing through November and well into February so my goal for Nanoedmo will look like this:
Starting at 298,000 words on November 1st
November Goal – Finish second draft of #ATOPAP AND Keep it below 300K words!
December Goal – Edit Down to 250k words
January Goal – Edit Down to 225k words
February Goal – Final notes and prep for Editor hand off
March WRITING BREAK — > #ATOPAP to the EDITOR!
April Goal – Work on MAPS for Five Shores and Aspera
