We have just one month until NaNoWriMo 2012. One month until everything comes to a grinding halt so that we can focus entirely on our creation. I can bash out anything up to 5 thousand words a day but simply knowing that NaNo is approaching makes that daily 1700 seem like an awful lot of words.
I now know what I’m going to be writing; it has a working title and a basic plot outline. It’s an idea I had for a novel some months back and jotted down for future development. I feel comfortable knowing that this is the work I’m going to be doing. I was beginning to wonder that I wouldn’t make my daily total with what I had planned to do.
It’s going to be great fun and good discipline and at the end of the day I’ll get a shed load of work produced so even if I don’t make the 50 k, nothing will be wasted.
Onto other news.
My current work in progress is nearing completion and will be approximately 50 k words. It’s written in first person POV which I’ve found hard but enjoyable. It has made it hard for me to make the story as long as my other novels though, so I may write a second story with the same character and published them both in a collection in a similar way that Stephen King did with 4 Past Midnight.
With 50 k words apiece, 2 or even 3 published as a collection might be a good idea, rather than as separate novellas. Not sure yet; still musing on this.
