I’m taking the plunge and joining the madness.  I was a little wishy washy about it, because I hate setting myself up for failure.  However, I need a kick in the pants, and NaNoWriMo is always so fun.  The energy is contagious.  I need some of that!

So I’m staying up until midnight tonight to get a good start.  As needed I’ll be doing timed stints, because that has really worked for me.  I did four sessions this morning and netted 1419 words on the Zombie Category Romance.  I’m not sure if I’ll try switching back and forth between projects yet or stick with one until I finish, but my main goals in November are:

1. FINISH the Zombie Category Romance.

2. FINISH Phantom.

Both projects are entirely plotted and well built, already started (around 3-5K on each).  I just need to FINISH.

If I can get to 50K by Nov. 30th, then all the better.  If by some miracle I finish both of them but haven’t yet hit my 50K goal, I’ll work on brainstorming for Mal’s book or Lord Regret’s.  I don’t lack for projects — it’s simply staying organized and focused that challenges me.

So here’s to a crazy month!

  1. Best of luck Joely with Phantom and ZCR!

    As for me, I will be cheering you on from the sidelines and using November to brainstorm my current project and try to get my commission samples and list pricing up before December.

    1. Thank you, SJ! When you’re ready with your samples and links, let me know. I want to share!

      1. Absolutely! 😀 Thank you Joely.
