My NaNoWriMo 2017 Writing Project

Another year has come and gone. And no, I don’t mean 2017. I mean NaNo is just around the corner.

I’m excited to get back into NaNo. I feel like my writing has been short this past year. I’ve really only written anything during the NaNo months. I’ve slowly been fixing that, but NaNo is when I’m the most productive. I think it’s the “competition” of my writing buddies that really makes me go.

My NaNoWriMo 2017 Project

While I have so many novels written that need editing, I feel weird not writing anything new for NaNo.

I’ve been on Wattpad for a long time now. I’ve been wanting to post a story or two on there and I just… haven’t. So, I plan on writing a novel/novella during NaNo. I’ll give that one or two rounds of edits and then post it on Wattpad. My goal is to have it published sometime in January.

“Special”

This past August, I posted an interactive Short Story Sunday where you, my readers, got to vote on what should happen next in the story.

I got a lot of positive feedback on the story and a few people have asked me to continue it. It was a story idea that I had debated on expanding. I’ve decided I’m going to continue it.

Meredith’s story was wrapped up in those four parts, but I know how it will continue with her roommate, Paige, and the Professor.

I plan on outlining it in October, writing it in November, editing it in December, and then publishing it on Wattpad in January. We’ll see how well that works out, but that’s the plan for now.

“Special” is a working title where the Professor will continue to pawn off his special notebook hoping to choose the “correct” person to handle its power. The power can be good or bad, depending on how who uses it and how they use it. Where the notebook came from, no one seems to know. The Professor seems to know more than what he lets on. We’ll just have to see what Paige decides to do with the power.

I’m still outlining the story now so more information on the story itself will come at the end of the month.

I’m looking forward to expanding on this idea. I hope it turns out well and I hope you’ll all read it (and enjoy it) when it’s on Wattpad.

Are you participating in NaNoWriMo next month? What will you be working on? Let me know in the comments below and we’ll chat!

  1. I can’t wait until NaNo this year. I’ve been working on the same story since last NaNo and I’m ready to work on something new. Like you said, it’s a lot easier to get those words in with so many others working on the same goal as you. It keeps you going when you would normally quit.

  2. I’m also working on my book during NaNo. I am just going to rewrite last year’s book and actually finish it this time! It’s tempting to start a new project, but this one needs to be finished first.

    1. I almost always try to start a new project during NaNo. It gives me something else to think about. But I do typically continue already-started novels during the Camp months. Good luck with your novel! 🙂
