Nano 2: Revenge of the Novel

I loved doing NaNoWriMo, but there are two problems with it. The first is that it’s in November, when my life is crazy with birthday, Thanksgiving, and all the work stuff I need to do to get ready for being with friends and family for a week or more. The second is that it’s only once a year.

So for the next thirty days, I’m going to be working on a novel, cranking out 50,000 words. Hey, this is probably the most stress-free time I will have all year; might as well take advantage of it! I’ll be posting my daily progress on this post so as not to completely crash your feeds, but I may make other posts detailing what’s going on with plot, characters, and general writing stress.

Wish me luck!

ETA: With travelling for interviews and other job search craziness, I ended up needing to take a break from writing the new novel. In the mean time, I’ve managed to finish a first draft of my first Nano novel and am working on a second draft. Then I’ll pick up again with the second Nano project. My aim is still to write a first draft in 30 days, but there’ll be a gap in the middle.
