Several people have asked: nope, not doing NaNoWriMo. Not officially, anyway. What I am doing is continuing to write on my novel with the goal of having it done by the end of the year. This means I’m going to be doing a lot of writing this month, and if any NaNo people want to get together and do so with me, all the better.
My novel will likely be around 50K (actually I am aiming for between 60 and 75K) as it’s a YA. And I would enjoy motivation. This is why I have the Chapters for Chocolate program. Anyone who wants to see my chapters as I complete them (in 5 chapter chunks) must give me good chocolate in return for them. That’s all.
Also, Nina Kiriki Hoffman and I have this thing going on. A word race, if you will. Each week in November we will see who has more words for that given 7 day period. Whoever writes less will have to buy the other a Kindle book.
So, I have some great motivators. And a novel that is (finally) behaving itself. So November will be a good month.
Anyone interested in NonNaNoing with me?
