NaNoWriMo day 1

01 Nov

Looking forward to todays word count.

First, let me just say…. I’m TIRED! We went to a Halloween party last night, and got home at a reasonable hour (11pm). But then I kept waking up. I also had to get up at 6am to drive my SO to work. I was already awake, and had been for a couple hours so I didn’t mind that. But later, sitting at my desk at work, sipping a steaming cup of coffee…. boy did I want to be home in bed.

On the plus side… I loved my costume.

I have had several people encouraging me to write a full length (80k+) novel, so that’s what I’m shooting for. I’ve been mulling over this story for the last few weeks, trying to iron out some of the kinks in the plot, and figuring out sub plots to add substance, not just word counts, to the story.I am prepared, I think, for NaNo. I have a full plot, it’s all set up in scrivener for easy writing.

It is a romance set in a fantasy land with mermaids, men that turn into hawks, giant squid like creatures with massive tentacled arms, and magic, lots of magic.

This all sounds fun to me, and kind of scary to be trying something so massive so soon after finishing “Forgotten Ones”. But the end result will be so worth it!

For an 80k+ word book I will also be getting an editor, one way or another. Which means it won’t be out any time soon as I will want to take my time and do things right. But it will be out eventually, and hopefully be a the best quality product I have put out.

But… I think I’ll put the first chapter out sometime after NaNoWriMo and a complete edit. So at least you can look forward to that.

      I am wondering if it would be appropriate to put it up on wattpad or not. (I could use $2k, and feedback). But I’m afraid feedback would be too distracting if I got it too soon. I am less worried about the publishing aspects since I’m doing self publishing…

      Too tired to decide right now.

        The feedback could also give you a good creative boost too, though. šŸ™‚ And yeah, that 2K is a great incentive. šŸ™‚

    PS- Very cool costume. Love how the hat just hangs there on the side of your head. šŸ™‚

      Ya, for how cheap the hat was, it was really cute. It’s just got a little elastic string holding it there. It was my favorite part of the outfit I think.
