With National Novel Writing Month coming up soon, here are five tips for writing through November.
Recently, I finished drafting, revising, and editing my manuscript for The Witch's Uprising, a medieval-inspired fantasy for teens, young adults, and adults. It took me more time than I wanted, but it was worth every bit of effort.
At 90,000 words, my manuscript is longer than I originally planned. I'm proud to say that I've finished something of this magnitude, and I hope it will be one of many projects in years to come. . .
As I research and study several avenues of self-publication, online publication, and author-related social media, I notice that I often daydream about writing new pieces outside of my mainline series. It would be nice to draft a quick 50,000 word novel, if only to have fun writing with others. I'd like to reconnect with the joy of cooking something from scratch / partially prepped.
Here are my questions to you:
-Are you thinking of participating in NaNoWriMo?
-Are you already prepping for November?
-Are you working on something else?
Share your thoughts in any case! I WANT TO KNOW.
