The last thing I know, NaNo was just starting. It seems like I blink and not only is NaNo over (and won) but Christmas is less than two weeks away (do I have to put up a tree?) I swear, every time I blink another week has gone by.
Nearly a week into NaNoWriMo ‘15 I’m not doing great. My back has been giving me fits for three weeks now, and I’ve been going to the chiropractor since early this week. I am finally getting better but I’m still pretty sore and not sleeping all that well. Earlier this week I was doing my best to function on only 3 hours sleep. Now I’m doing better but it’s a slow climb. My story is good, I’m just having a hard tuning into my characters. I’m sure it’s more than a little bit due to the lack of sleep and the crazy busy schedule we’ve had over the last week. I’m hoping that some good rest and a calmer schedule will help me get some extra work done over the weekend and into next week.
How is your NaNo going?
The start of NaNoWriMo ‘15 that is. Are you ready? I am. I’ve spent much of October working on characters and settings, figuring out just what the plot twists are (at least some of them) and where I think this story is going. You know me, it’s a romance, but it’s never just a straightforward boy meets girl, there’s always some difficulty they have to deal with and get around to make things work. I won’t say I’m not busy, I am. but then that’s a way of life for me these days. At least this year we’re not making 60 plus pies for the old man to sell at work (for work profit, I got nothing out of it.)
I’ve got my scrivener all set up and I’m ready to get busy. But first we have a kick off party on Saturday (oh, yeah, did I mention I’m co-MLing for my area this year? The prep classes went amazingly well, now we just have to get through November.)
Are you doing NaNoWriMo this year? Are you ready?
As I get ready to head out to teach another session of Creating Cool Characters for our NaNo Prep classes at the library I feel the need to drop in with a quick up date.
We’re still on release week for Wicked After Dark. We’ve had a ton of help and right now we’re even featured on Free Kindle Books and Tips. So far, I’ve managed to get as high as #46 on Amazons bestselling Paranormal Romance Authors list, and let me tell you, I’m so excited I can’t sit still.
