To NaNo or not to NaNo?

Shall I? Shan’t I? This is what I’ve been asking myself over the past few weeks. I think I vowed not to do this again at the end of last November. I’d made hard work of it, although I didn’t need to; not that I signed up for the ‘real deal’, just a modest target of 30,000 words. However, in the end, I did get half a novel almost completed within the month.

So it was worth it!

That novel is now complete. Song of the Sea Goddess is due for release early next year and, in the meantime, I shall be offering advance reader copies to any of you who’d like to read it and review it. More about this soon.

So, NaNo again?

You bet! But on my own informal personal terms like last year and the year before:

– Target 30,000 words.

– Write at least 5 chapters each week.

– Enjoy it!

That won’t be a whole novel. It will be a good start.


and Sinead and Moonsprite’s saga will continue too!

My Monday warm up with Sadje’s What Do You See will continue




Good luck to all NaNoWriMo participants!
Especially those who have committed to doing it properly.

    • Thanks for the good wishes, Irma. I set a lower bar for myself knowing that I couldn’t meet the real target. I won’t be sharing this time because I’m writing the sequel to the novel I’m about to release. The advance readers copies of that will be coming out in the next week or so.

  1. Good luck with NaNoWriMo! Me and my sisters usd to participate when we were younger. It’s unfortunate that I’m too busy this year with my studies to join in but I’m hoping to do the equivalent to this in January which is when I have my holiday.

  2. I love your plan! I think I’ll attempt something similar next year. It’s just too nutty this month for me to give it a go, but I do have a couple goals with Princeborn Book 3 and my NaNo project from last year that I want to tend to. If I can tackle those goals and stay on top of the whole teach/mom thing, then I KNOW I can do NaNo next year! xxxxxx
