NaNoWriMo 2014, I’m ready for you!
Friday, 31 October 2014

Hello Mister Kapre! Guess what? I’m trying my hand at a full 50,000-word NaNoWriMo this year! Take a look at my preps:

Preps for NaNoWriMo 2014

Yeah, I know. I’m obsessive-compulsive that way! I tried to wing it the first time in Camp NaNoWriMo, and failed miserably. I only had to write 15,000 words, but I still didn’t make it. Second try at Camp NaNoWriMo, success! And yep, I prepared for that. Like, scene-by-scene outline level of preps.

So now, I’m trying my shot at finishing 50,000 words in one month. From November 1 to 30, I’m going to write daily to make the word count. I really do want to complete it this time… The novel I’ve been working on had been on hold for so long, it’s about time I complete it. Besides, January is submissions month! Best time to send out all those queries when agents and publishers are open to submissions.

Of course, I can’t submit anything if I don’t finish it. Hopefully, NaNoWriMo will give me the push I need! 🙂

Wish me luck, Mister Kapre!

    Good luck. I haven’t done any preparations whatsoever because I’m a SOTP writer. I’ll just drive my way through November in full throttle, no outlines or plans or character sheets.

      Good luck to you too, Adam! 🙂

  • Hey, you’re doing Reverse NaNoWriMo also! Did you see the Excel file I uploaded that will do the math for you? You can also download it here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/umlpx1aw6ljcrso/Reverse-NaNoWriMo-Tracker.xlsx?dl=0

    Good luck to us! And don’t forget, just write, write, write! Fixing things is what all the other months in the year are for. Haha.

      Yep! I got a copy 🙂 Haha, the “just write, don’t edit” is going to be the hard part for me 😛
