No, not the sound of a siren but the sound of a pen scratching on paper. I’m participating in the annual writing challenge to write 50k words in one month. The challenge suggests that it’s quite possible to write a novel in a month, though that’s not strictly true. [Read more…] about NaNo…NaNo…NaNo
Aarrghh… can’t believe we’re into October already! Though Autumn is my absolutely favourite season and NaNoWriMo is approaching so excited all round! How did I fair in September, I wonder…
😋 3rd Edit of Wolf Moon – yay! And gone to for Beta Reading
😉 Rainbow Warriors review – I’ve done a lot on this and… the story has already changed, but for the better I believe
😥 Partake in a couple of writers challenges – nope, I couldn’t keep up with this. I need to accept my planner affliction and well… get them planned in advance
😁 Daily Writing Prompts Monday to Friday – 18 out of 20 and I did some extra scribbles now and again. This is becoming a habit… think three months and it’s hard wired.
😎 Update my journal ‘First Draft in 30 days’ to market for NaNoWrimo – and it’s a yes… need more work on the marketing side.
So for October – as I’ve mentioned, NaNoWriMo starts in November so a lot of this month will be spent preparing for that…
The Big Stuff
✔ Sketch out two more Wolf Moon sequels – for development as NaNo project #1
✔ Revisit snowflake for Rainbow Chronicles – NaNo project #2
✔ Schedule responses to #FantasyWiPOctober – did I mention I’ve passed 500 followers on Instagram! So chuffed and will be working hard to make new connections… you can follow me here
And it would be nice:
- to pick up my keyboard practice… haven’t done any since April
- to resume my Italian listening skills practice
- to get out on the bikes and make it to a cafe for coffee!
What are you planning to get done this month?
