Yes, it is just a few hours until NaNoWriMo begins! This year I am actually going to participate, fully. Like writing an entire 50,000+ rough draft. I have all of the things I need in place: Good and Plenty candy and a plan. The only thing I didn’t plan for was Hurricane Sandy to come tearing through Pennsylvania. Luckily, I have power but schools are closed and kids are home. This means lots of kids in the house from the neighborhood and me not having quiet to write. Ah well. I think I will manage!
This will be the last you’ll hear from me for awhile. I have a few book tours scheduled here on the blog, but other than that I will be incommunicado. I will be writing. And thinking. Occasionally I will poke my head onto Twitter and see what the rest of you are up to, but I won’t be there long. Promise.
For those of you writing and participating in NaNoWriMo, I wish you luck! Don’t forget that this is the time to write a rough draft. You will not have a completed manuscript ready to submit to agents in December. Take your time and do this thing right. Find a critique partner. Edit. Revise. Repeat.
