Six Down, Six to Go! (Holy crap, we’re halfway there!)

First of all, a quick shout-out to my 12noveling sister. This was her last month of the project, and she did an amazing job, especially considering that she never wrote anything nearly this big ever before and she chose actual genres for each month. I barely know what genre I will write in until the day I begin writing! She’s finished up the year with 3 manuscripts and I am totally proud of her.

Secondly, what a month! I’m so tired I can’t even feel it any more. And yes, that is partly because I got myself in a time crunch and had to write 12,000 words today. If you ever want to know what it is like to be truly without a clear thought in your mind, give this a try. So you can all forgive me for the rather nonsensical and teensy post tonight. It is 2:30 in the morning where I am, and I have decided to stay up late with a celebratory glass or five of wine. Ok, a celebratory bottle of wine.

Don’t look at me like that. I earned it.

  1. Thank you so much! I wish you all the best in the next 6 months. It’s amazing how quickly time flies, isn’t it?

    Well, I’m back for round two; if I wasn’t crazy before, I’m absolutely certifiable now. It’s been tough, there’s no doubt about that but I’m hooked on the creative process and the constant plotting and outlining of new stories.

    I can’t wait to see what the next 1/2 year holds for us both! Good luck to you!

  2. This is a great accomplishment. Experimenting with different genres must be mind bending as well as confidence building!

  3. you know how you say that sometimes you write 6k words a day (or probably more than that on most days)… do you plan your novels in advance? so you know at least a basic idea of what happens and why it happens? how do you not get “stuck”? or do you just use random nano dares just to get a word count? good luck and thanks for being so inspiring!
