NaNo and the art of being unorganized

Hi Everyone!

Long time followers of this little blog would remember that last November I did NaNoWriMo. From the 1st of the month I panicked, pleaded with the muses, tapped my little heart out, and managed to walk away as a winner.

I decided to sign up for NaNo again this year. When I did, it seemed like a great idea. Awesome! A month to put aside editing and excuses, and just write. Yeah. That was before the release date for Through the Fire was set for 31st October, and before I set the release date for Happily Evan After for 13th December. So instead of getting straight into NaNo on the first, I actually started on the 12th. Actually, scratch that, technically I really started yesterday because I've been getting through end of month at work. So instead of 50,000 words in 30 days, I'm going to attempt it in 16 days. Yep, you heard that right. I'm still doing it. I'm way more disorganized than I was for last years, but I think I have a decent excuse for that. Truthfully, win or not, I'm actually looking forward to the challenge.

The last two months have been a roundabout of edits, revisions, proof reads, formatting, and ramping up promotions, so it's actually been refreshing to be getting back to basics. It was almost cathartic when I hit 1,500 words last night.

Going to head back into the writing cave now. Wish me luck!
