It’s that time of year again… NaNoWriMo is coming! (I feel like I’m so behind on NaNo prep and everything this year even though I got an early start?!? Like it’s a week away and I haven’t even announced my novel yet!?!? What is happening????)
So. Anyway. What is NaNoWriMo you ask? Well, it’s my favorite time of the year. Aka: National Novel Writing Month. Where, basically, a ton of crazy writers decide we’re going to write AN ENTIRE NOVEL OF 50,000 words IN JUST ONE MONTH!!! You can find out more about it on the site here and also add me as a buddy here.
I’ve been doing NaNo since 2013 when, in the midst of moving, I decided to try out this super crazy thing having only ever written one book before that took me MONTHS to write the first draft of and with a super half-assed “outline” (it was really just an idea. A vague idea at that.) Now, somehow, I don’t know how, I managed to win that first year??? And I’ve done it every year since! And won! Honestly, nothing is as fun and frustrating and stressing as NaNoWriMo and this time of the year would just not feel right if I didn’t do NaNo.
What am I writing this year? I’m glad you asked.
Drum roll please.
Magic In The City of Sin:
So, yeah. This will be a YA urban fantasy novel. I’m so excited because it’s my first time writing urban fantasy! Also, the romance. I’m so ready to dive into writing a book that’s pretty much all about a magic competition and an epic romance between two messes of girls.
I should probably go finish my outline now…
Are you doing NaNo this November? If so, what genre is your project and what element of your story most excites you???
