NaNoWriMo 2015

I am super excited that another session of NaNoWriMo is coming up soon!

I usually don’t start thinking about it until October, but that’s right around the corner.

I was wondering what I was going to write since I decided that I was going to edit George Florence for the time being.

Last year I wrote a short story a day. Some came out pretty good and some didn’t. However, I missed writing one specific story. So I don’t think I’m going to do that again this year.

Since I decided to post some original novellas on Wattpad, I figured I will work on one of those for NaNo.

I plan on writing those in notebooks first. Then type them up later. That way I can edit as I type it up and that’s one draft down.

So between now and then I’m going to outline one of the stories (I haven’t decided which one I’m going to write yet) and start writing it in a notebook. Since handwriting will take longer than typing, I’m going to start in October or whenever I finish the outline.

I hope to have the story finished by November 1 so I can type it up for NaNo. I know starting early is technically “cheating.” However, if I’m able to handwrite and/or type 50,000 words during November, then I think that’s fine. You guys won’t tell on me, will you?

Have you thought about NaNo yet?

    1. I have to be a rebel! I’ve been so busy lately. I’ve never been a NaNo rebel before, so it’ll be interesting. There’s a first time for everything. 😉

  1. I love NaNo rebels. There are so many people breaking the rules to make it practical for the project they actually want to work on, but being inspired by the thousands of other people attempting a big writing feat at the same time. The camaraderie is honestly my very favorite thing about the month.

  2. I did short stories last NaNo as well, but it was more like a story or two a week – they turned out long. I like the idea of writing in a notebook first so that typing it up it becomes a second draft almost by default – I never thought of it that way.

Let me know what you think!
