In case you guys didn’t know, November is National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo for short. This means that thousands of people participate in writing a 50,000 word novel. This is an event I used to take part in back in high school, but lost track of it after failing miserably. But now I’m ready to come back with vengeance!
I’ll admit, I’m not much of a planner with this. I have a general overview of what I’m trying to write about but I have no plot specifics in mind. I’m just going to start writing and see where it takes me! I originally wanted to try to plan a little bit, but I didn’t want to commit to a major plot incase I didn’t like the way it was turning out. So, I’m going into this pretty blind.
I was thinking of doing NaNoWriMo updates once-a-week, in order to update you guys on my progress. I will definitely be tweeting along the way (shameless plug to that here). But I was thinking about devoting one post a week to either how I’m doing, how I’m getting through it, my playlist for writing, etc. If you have any ideas, please let me know!
The genre of my novel is Young Adult, which I think is pretty boring. But I don’t think I’m creative enough to create an entire science fiction or fantasy novel. I don’t even have a title yet! That’s going to be something that just comes to me along the way (I hope).
If you’re also participating, and want to add me as a writing buddy you can find me under the username lifewithkendal.
Are you planning on participating in NaNoWriMo this November? If so, how is your planning process going, or do you know what you’re writing about?
