I am so looking forward to NaNoWriMo this year. Not only have I got a solid rough outline, which is something entirely new for me, but I am enthusiastic about the story line. I love my main character and can’t wait to write her story.
In the past I haven’t bothered with an outline. I’ve had some vague scenes in mind and worked from there. While I’ve been successful in finishing the challenge, I have not gone back and worked on the drafts. I wasn’t involved enough in the novels to bother. This year is different.
I have a number of writing buddies this year. In past years, I’ve sometimes dropped in to the forum, but I’ve never had so many buddies. Should be good for incentive and encouragement to make the 50,000 word count.
I am actually aiming for about 75,000 words, but that may not happen until a rewrite.
I’ll be interrupted by realtors as my house is going on the market November 1st, so I will have to write around showings. But that’s okay. I am psyched. Oh, and of course, I will have to find a new place to live. I love to move to, and decorate, a new place.
For any participant who wants to add me as a writing buddy, I am faerieblu at NaNoWriMo.
