It’s almost time for that epic month of nonstop plotting, writing, lack of sleep and maybe a little monkey business: National Novel Writing Month. Woo-hoo!!
Even when I don’t officially sign up for NaNo, I try to write as much as possible in November. It’s a good kick in the butt and an excuse to ignore the cooking, cleaning and laundry (because I’m so on top of it the rest of the year!).
The thing is, I write middle grade novels and none of them has ever been 50,000 words. This year though, I have a story idea that could very well end up that long. I’ve done a little plotting, written a couple chapters that may or may not end up in the final novel. We shall see.
Is anybody out there doing NaNoWriMo this year?
