The other week I lamented over losing my entire MS. I have begun to rewrite it (yay!) but it’s going a little slower than I wanted. Mostly because I’m lazy. Then I remembered that I wrote this whole thing in a month during NaNoWriMo so surely I should be able to rewrite it in a month.
During the month of April I’m doing Camp NaNoWriMo.
And it will go better than the past 2 I’ve done.
50,000 words by the end of the month. 30 days of hard core writing. Approximately 1,670 words a day. I can do this.
I’ve got just over 14,000 words so far. So if I can do 50,000 this month, it will be a nice sized MS. Luckily I’ve got a nearly finished outline so I kind of know what’s going to be going on. But I’m looking forward to my characters surprising me again!
As I’ve done when I’ve participated in NaNoWriMo, I’ll be posting updates throughout the month. Hopefully they’ll be more than freakouts, whining, and OMGWHATDIDIGETMYSELFINTO like I usually have posted.
One thing I hope this write-a-thon doesn’t lead to is a decrease in blogging because, if you’ve noticed, I haven’t been the best blogger lately. You know, in like the past 6 months. Whoops. Luckily I have a whole list of books to review that will take me into the first of April.
I also hope this doesn’t lead to a decline in reading. But to help not feel pressured to read all the new books, I think I may do a few rereads this month. I watched most of City of Bones last night (hey, I was tired) so now I want to reread that series to get ready for the final book coming out in May. I’m also thinking about rereading the Girl of Fire and Thorns series and His Fair Assassins series. And who knows? Maybe reading these books will help me write!
So wish me luck friends! Tweets, emails, and encouragement cookies are appreciated! 🙂
