NaNoWriMo

I’ve decided to do NaNoWriMo once again. Haven’t heard of it? It’s the National Novel Writing Month that takes place every November. During that month, you write a novel of at least 50,000 words.

Piece of cake you say? Do you have school, work, family? Do you want to visit family or friends at Thanksgiving. There will be other demands on your time.

This year, I’m going to make it easier on myself. I’ll have a detailed outline to work from. Last year it was seat of pants writing. I didn’t do badly though, I won by the 26th.

My novel is Red Maslem and the Pilots of Anzu. I haven’t gone back and edited it, but that’s not an issue with me. I did write a novel in a month. After that, I wrote a 577 page book in December, then between January and March of 2013, I wrote two more books.

I’ve published two books on Kindle and one on CreateSpace, in between everything else I have to do. I hope to have the third one edited and available this fall.

I want to have the one I write this November to be of high enough quality to be published commercially. I’ll vet it with agents after I write it instead of going straight to Kindle Publications.
