Preparing for NaNo

It's that time of the year again. November is racing towards us. After my first, fabulous attempt at NaNo in 2009, I am really looking forward to 2010. There is just nothing like the feeling of thousands of obsessive writers rushing towards the deadline.

This year's NaNo is going to be different from last year. Instead of having a goal for a complete draft (90K) as I did in 2009, I am going to aim just for NaNo goal which is 50K.

There are three reasons for this:

1. Editing my current book is also a priority, and I can't focus on that as well as writing 90K, along with all the other stuff I have to do - like go to work

2. I want to try for a better, even slightly edited-as-I-write first draft, so the pace will be slower, which makes 50K a better target than 90K.

3. New expansion for Sims 3 is very unfortunately coming out on 29th of October, which means, I am gonna have to play it in November.

NaNo 2010 Project

I am going to be writing a second book in the series for my Fantasy WIP that I wrote for NaNo 2009. I considered various projects, but since I am going to be editing this story, I figured better stick to the same world. I am still brainstorming, so the actual outline hasn't started, so that's going to be bit of a push to have it done in October, but hoping for the best because I would really like to have a proper outline done.


  1. All the best for your NaNo! :-)
    You are my heroine!

  2. Wow. Good luck. NaNo doesn't work for me- but I wish it did. :)

  3. Nofretiri,
