The Start of NaNoSubMo!

Today is the first day of NaNoWriMo! Good luck to everyone out there trying to crank out 1,667 words each day in the month of November. I’m not participating this year. I have a finished and polished novel ready for public consumption. Well, it’s ready for consumption by agents and editors. They’ll determine what changes ...

NaNoSubMo

I’m not participating in NaNoWriMo this year. It’s not because I don’t believe in the process of encouraging writers. It’s because I have different plans this year! I’ve decided to submit Warmaiden to one agent or editor each day in the month of November. I’m calling this National Novel Submission Month. Or… wait for it… ...

NaNoWriMo 2011 :: I’m In!

It’s already nearing the end of the work day here in Colorado, and I’ve just now decided that I’m going to jump in and do NaNoWriMo this year. I’ve been pondering this for about week, and I’ve decided that the almost twenty thousand words of Warmistress just aren’t shaping up to be what I want ...

NaNoWri…NO

I participated in NaNoWriMo for the past two years and had varying levels of success. Unfortunately, time constraints on me this year are preventing me from even taking a stab at things. *big heavy sigh* I hope to be able to jump into the fray next year!

NaNoWriMo 2009 – Results

NaNoWriMo 2009 rolled to a close last night, and I was writing right up until midnight in an attempt to squeeze out a few more words. I did get a few thousand more of them put into WARMAIDEN, but the NaNoWriMo site cut me off. I went there at two minutes to midnight (there’s my ...

NaNoWriMo 2009 — Status #2

Last night, thanks to the PPW‘s Chris Mandeville and her great organizational skills, I was able to throw a few more words out at the screen. My grand total for the month thus far is 25,726 words. That means I hit my personal goal of 25,000 words. Will I make the 50,000 words for NaNoWriMo ...

NaNoWriMo 2009 — Status

I’m eleven days into NaNoWriMo, and I’ve managed to crank out 20,000 words. That puts me at a grand total of 36,000 for the book. Having reached this milestone is a great one for me. I’m one-third the way through my word count, and an equal distance through my plotline and page counts. I managed ...

NaNoWriMo 2009 — Crushed My Goal Already

I set my personal goal for NaNoWriMo this year at 10,000 words. Thanks to the Pikes Peak Writers and Chris Mandeville for setting up the NaNoTRYMo this year. I spent 3 hours writing at the PPW Write-in and cranked out over 6,000 words in that 3 hours. It’s amazing what you can do when surrounded ...

NaNoWriMo 2009

I’m doing NaNoWriMo again this year, and I hope to do better this year than I did last year. Last year, I cranked out a little over 9,000 words. I’m setting my personal goal at 10,000 words for this year. I’m two days in and have a little under 4,000 words in the bank. If ...

NaNoWriMo 2008 – Results

I fell drastically short of the magic number this year. Of course, the magic number was 50,000 words, and I came up with a “mere” 9,172, but I’m quite proud of that paltry number. It’s not 9,172 words of cranked out verbiage just for the sake of getting ink on paper. It’s top-notch (and even ...
