My NaNoWriMo Plan // I am going to die


November has begun! And with it the horror we call NaNoWriMo.

If you like competitions, (me) then this is perfect and you will have a tone of fun challenging your friends to Word Wars!

If not, then get ready for stress, tears and a chocolate overdose.

 Or, you could just not do NaNoWriMo... 
 There is one downside to being a book blogger abstaining from NaNo. And that is, during November, almost all the bloggers disappear.



I, for one, am going to abandon my blog so that I can write "in peace."

But not really.

You see, this post you are reading was written the last Friday of September. I normally write my blog posts in advance anyway (though normally we're talking the Saturday before and not the month before) so why should my blog go dormant?

Granted, I probably won't be quick about getting back to you in the comments and, for those of you who blog, I probably won't get a chance to read your posts...

But I'll try and find time once in a while to check my blog. (Make sure it hasn't exploded, etc)
And if that fails, I'll get back to all of you in December.

[Wow. This was supposed to be a quick note at the beginning. Oh well]

NANOWRIMO PEOPLE!

It has begun! And by the time you read this, I will probably be typing away furiously.

But I also plan things out FAR FAR FAR in advance, so my plan to beat NaNoWriMo is...

To write an entire chapter a day (3K or more) and on select days write two chapters.

The goal is to finish a 81K novel before the 23rd.


Because I am insane.


And....(if that wasn't bad enough)

  • I'm going to finished plotting my next novel. (Which I am starting the first draft in December) This means a rough plot, detailed chapter by chapter, scene by scene plot. Character development. Brainstorming...
     
  • If I finish in time, I might start my December novel...
     
  • Plot a couple other novels.
     
  • Read a least 35 books
     
  • Carry on with my crazy life


What are your NaNoWriMo Plans? Finish up an old project? Start a new one THAT YOU ARE SUPER EXCITED FOR! Sit back and laugh at all the people dying from NaNoWriMo?

  2. Yikes! Is it bad that I read this list and thought the least ambitious goal was writing a 81k novel? 'Cause that's the case. But have fun with your goals. Make sure you take care of yourself and we'll see you on the other side of November!

    2. This sounds way creepier than I think you intended...

    3. Ghosts aren't creepy. (Ok, maybe a little creepy)

      Delete
    4. I was thinking, "Personally, MK, I'd rather you didn't??"

      (I'm not sure - do you think you'd be a creepy ghost?)

      Delete
    5. I'm sure I'd be a bomb awesome ghost.

      And I probably wouldn't talk to you PERSONALLY, I'd probably just keep blogging.

      And you'd never know.

      (Maybe I'm dead now???)

    1. Whoa, wait, I thought it was decided I would dominate the world and she would have a mountain cabin filled with books. XD

    1. At least you're not in literal tears.
      Just keep your chin up and drink lots of coffee. (The chin thing is so that the coffee won't pour down your shirt)

    2. Gah

      Why is it so hard to talk to you?

      YOU ARE A BRAVE AND MIGHTY WARRIOR AND I BELIEVE IN YOU!

      Delete
    3. Aw, I'm not hard to talk to, am I? (I'm actually socially awkward in person, but I [hope I??] manage to hide it over the internet.)

      THANK YOU I'LL TRY NOT TO DISAPPOINT YOU
