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! πŸ™‚

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.

  2. 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:

    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.
