Today’s the first day of NaNoWriMo and yes I’m going to give it a go. But not strictly according to the rules! The aim of NaNoWriMo is to write 50,000 words in 30 days. Well, I’ve got plenty of words lying around so my aim is to do something on my current WIP every day in November. Because of all the other things that happen in my life, this is a challenge. Love a challenge, I heard me say. And what’s worse, I’m going to try and blog it.
Day 1: Current WIP has 50, 083 words. It needs a damn good tidy, a bit like an unruly hedge that was planted straight and went completely out of whack. Part of my problem is that I need to do a bit of research and decision-making about where to from here. I’m onto it, having borrowed books from library and done an internet sweep. Got a bit of a layout problem as well, but I might cheat on that for the moment by simply labelling chapters with characters name (there are two voices in this book). I can work on that some way down the track. I don’t expect to write many words in NaNoWriMo but I want my head and therefore the ideas to be clearer.
PS Sent Mongrel (now known as Wrecked) re-write off.
