Regrettably I did not write any blog posts last week but it was for a good reason. I was making sure that I had everything prepared for National Novel Writing Month, which starts tomorrow, and I was mapping out my plan on how to go about achieving my maximum word count per day so that I can reach that goal of 50,000 words by the end of the month. This will be the third year (I think) that I have done this and although many might think that it should be easier the more often that I do it, it most certainly is not. Especially since this year my story is a little different for me. I am stepping out of my typical comfort zone and writing a story that is not in the genre that I have experience in writing (which is typical mainstream fiction) but one that I would like to definitely gain some experience in (mystery, suspense, with a little romance for good measure). This year this will be a little more challenging for me, but then again I always like to be challenged. So I thought to maintain my blog during November instead of completely abandoning it, that I would blog about my NaNoWriMo experience as I go along. I hope that you will follow along in my journey this year and perhaps even go sign up this year and take the plunge yourself. Well I better go make sure that I have all last minute details of my characters ironed out before tomorrow. Until next time…Start planning, you have a novel to write too!
