Hello! My blogging is taking a backseat right now thanks to National Novel Writing Month. Anyone else participating?
I have a very ambitious goal this year: two 50,000-word novels by November 30. It means writing an average of 3,333 words per day. I’m alternating between projects day-by-day. So far, it’s keeping the voices clearer and giving me time to think ahead to where I need to go next. That’s the difficulty of my process: I do some light planning, knowing which beats I have to hit, and then when I get into drafting, I power through until I’ve exhausted the scene/chapter/phase and have no idea how to go forward.
I hope to have some more good news in the coming month, as well as a go-ahead from my editor to work on some new manuscripts. But they can wait until December!
