Happy hump day. If you haven’t figured it out, the month of November will be filled with nano gripes and highs. This is as good as any opportunity to really see inside an author’s head and watch their process. Obviously so much more goes on at the back end when the story is done but…

   
Its week 2 of nanowrimo and I’m pretty sure its my worst nano year ever. LOLOL. I can’t dig into the story like I need to but I’ll keep pushing through. So far I’m at 5k. 🙁 Ugh. Here’s a tiny peek at all the rough glory of my work in progress. Before she could…

   
It’s been a little over two weeks into nanowrimo2020. I’ve been up and down with my word count but I wasn’t worried since I’d planned a 40k novella anyway. It is now done!! LOL. 38k actually but once it goes to my beta reader and editor, I’m sure I’ll add a couple of thousand words…

   
Well, there is one week of #nano done and 3 weeks to go. Its been an interesting first week of November to say the least and I’ve fallen behind. It’s not too bad so I’ll work on picking up the pace this week. Current word count on it is 12,121. I’m still in the game…

   
I got a lot on my plate with 2 books in progress so why am I even LOOKING at NANO. I admit its because NANO makes me feel lucky AND its a time when everyone is uniting in an effort to explore and enjoy the world of writing. So there you have it. I’m going…

   
And I bombed. Yep, complete crash and burn. I have lots of excuses. Rydak’s Fall released, Trial by Flame released, I’m self editing a February release and I worked on two books that were difficult to find my groove. As a result without doing last ditch acrobatics, I’m pretty sure I’m finishing the month with…

   
I guess one could say I’m 10 days in though I technically didn’t start until 11/3, I think. At least that’s the story I’m going with. I have made good strides from that disastrous 500 word sprint. I’m currently around 9k and some change. Nothing to write home about but the story is finally moving…

   
What was I thinking? That’s the question I’m asking myself the 3rd year in a row and here I sit people. Doing nano 🙂 🙂 Wish my luck. I’m doing a sci-fi romance…yep. LOL. My hero today is a government agent, tomorrow…who knows. My heroine is a villain. *gasp* Why? I’m so glad you asked. I…

   
This is the final stretch my nano brethren. Almost a full week left to rev the engines and bring your project home at 50k. How are you doing? Stressed? In a panic? If you’re in the US, the holiday this week could be a plus or minus. A plus if you get extra time off…
