Yep. It's that time of year again. To commit or not. To Nanowrimo.
I've tried to win for the past three or four years. And I get off to a good start and somewhere along the month, life seems to rear it's ugly head and interfere.
I have yet to win NaNo. The most I've written on a book during November is right around 25K--which is more than I usually write in a month, so that is not a bad thing. It just means I didn't win Nano. As for writing, it's still a win for me.
I have two projects that I'm considering for this years NaNo--if I decide to partake of the festivities.
For the past couple of month's I've been focusing on Pages Of Life and have about 22K written already. If I write 50K on it, I will have a finished first draft to send off to some critique partners--you know, after a round of edits in January.
I love the story of Pages--the reconciliation and reunion of a family, along with a hot romance. Me--writing a hot romance. That should be worth something right there.
The second project is also a romance. It's a reunion rock start romance with a recovering sick child. When I write a romance, I want as many tropes as possible in it. This one even has a bare bones outline. By outline I mean something along the lines of "Chaper One: VMA contacts Claire."
So, while deciding if I can commit and go for the gold,I'm also trying to decide which manuscript deserves the chance to get finished--which basically means which one is the muse pushing at me?
Tell me, is anyone out there in Wrangler Land attempting NaNo this season??
