So… this year I’ve decided to take part in NaNoWriMo – or National Novel Writing Month – which takes place every year and runs throughout November. I considered trying this last year to kick-start my creativity, but was heavily into editing Hope’s Daughter at the time and so couldn’t commit to being creative and an editor at the same time – there’s not enough room inside my head.
But this year…I’ve done my editing on The Rainbow Maker’s Tale and it’ll be with the people doing their edits and beta reading for the next few weeks, so I thought ‘why not?’ Helpfully, I’m already into Outlanders, which is what I’ll be working on for NaNoWriMo, and so I have a huge amount waiting to be written after months of kicking around the ideas and one-shots. I’m hoping that writing each day – just pouring the story out of me – will help get me into a good routine, that might continue into the new year… but then again, that sounds far too organised for me! 🙂
Are you taking part in NaNoWriMo? What are you going to write about?
