Nano is comming

Yep, that’s right dear reader, next month is November. And, that means it’s NANOWRIMO time.

For the fourth year in a row I’m pretty much shutting down my other projects and doing a straight burn to get a novel done in a month. For the second year in a row I have a personal goal of 85,000 words (I surpassed 80,000 last year). For the first time the book in question is not a Johnson Farm novel.

I’m at one published (and heading for a re issue) with three more books well on the road to being published for this series. Two more are planned, but because of the nature of those books I want the previous books a little more developed before I do the last ones. So, I’m going for something new…

This year I will be writing a fantasy adventure novel, one set in a world that is kind of my own fault (yeah, you’ll get to read about that part too, but that’s another story…).

I’m really kind of excited with the story I intend to do. I’ve already met some of my characters (there are always a few new ones who show up at the last minute…). I sort of have an idea what will happen (but those darn characters always do kind of do their own thing…). I even have a handle on the where (but I haven’t fully explored it yet (at least not that completely)…)

This is my writing blog, and I’ve talked about Nano here before. So, I’m guessing at least some folks have heard of it…

For those who haven’t:

Here’s a link to the NANOWRIMO web site

NANOWRIMO as a Tool

NANOWRIMO is a real opportunity for those of us who are, or want to be, writers. And, if you haven’t tried it yet, I invite you to join us! (And if you have tried feel free to try again (it’s a learning process even when you ‘win’)).

Either way dear reader, good luck in your literary endeavors. And, I’ll see you next post.
