OMG… It’s Nano Prep Time!

…or how a November writing challenge actually starts in October. 🙂

Since I am throwing myself fully into the creative aspect of my endeavors and pretty much leaving the political commentary and news reporting in the past for now, I have decided to give Nano another try. The last time I did it, I got my novel. So, what do I have to lose?

What is Nano?

For those who don’t know, It is short for National Novel Writing Month. Those that take up the challenge call it Nanowrimo (nah no WRY moh). The challenge consists of writing a novel in 30 days, and it starts in November, well the writing starts in November.

Let me explain.


With the first book, I just jumped in and started writing whatever sprang to mind. This lead to re-reading it several times to add, edit, delete, and fix any continuity errors. I had fun doing it that way, but finding a suitable ending was the challenge. It needed to be solid. I ended up re-writing it before I published on Smashwords and Amazon.

This year, I am going to start in October and use Dabble to outline scenes, plots, and characters. I don’t quite know what the heck I am going to write about, but I am going to be a little more prepared and a little less hap-hazard this time.

How many of you are doing Nano this year? Are you a veteran, or is this your first time?

Until Next time,

  1. I took part in NaNo for the first time last year, but I lost and only managed 35k. I think this year I will be taking part as a rebel, and use the month to add 50k to an ongoing project
