*Just a quick update and change of plans and insight into my life…
NaNoWriMo is a really good idea and gets a lot of people writing who don’t normally write. It got me to write more than I ever have for one project. For that, I am grateful, but it just isn’t working for me in one month.
I have found that it is turning into more of a really thorough outline than a novel. I want my book to have depth and I don’t like how little I can really fall in love with my book with the time I have.
So, I am going to extend it through December (for me), and attempt to finish my first draft in two months in which I will have a lot of time off thanks to the holidays. I don’t want to be pressured into writing words because I want to write a masterpiece. I believe in quality over quantity and I want that to be evident in everything I do.
Thank you nanowrimo for getting me started, now I’m going to take off.
Are you on track to complete NaNoWriMo? What is your book about? YOU CAN DO IT!!! Also, please don’t forget to save and back up CONSTANTLY. I lost 1500 words because my computer decided to force updates upon me and I wasn’t prepared.
