Is June 12th too late to join JuNoWriMo?
I hope not because I just did. (See the countdown on the right? That means I’m legit.)
Here’s why: I’ve got another idea! For another book! I never thought this would happen to me. But I’m already 5,000 words in and I thought this “contest” would be a great way to motivate me to keep going.
I’ve started a new habit. Instead of going to blogs and reading about what’s going on with these authors NOW I go back to their very first month of posts. The beginning of their blog journey. And it’s been WAY inspiring. But also I’ve learned, not many people get a hit out of their first manuscript. And I’m learning that maybe the timing on my particular piece of fantasy may not be right. And I’m seeing just how much work I have left to put into it. And while I’m still planning on doing that work, I have something else in my head now.
The other day while I was driving to pick up my daughter, a new idea hit me. Sparkly new. Exciting new. And oh my goodness it’s been fun to write. I’m not even done with chapter one, but I know where I want it to go, who my MC is, and exactly what I want to happen.
We’ll see if that’s really what happens.
Anyway, here I go. Only 45,000 more words to go before the end of the month to get my winner badge. Think I can do it? Anyone else on the forums? (For more info on JuNoWriMo go here ).
How about you? Any goals this month? How’s it going trying to reach them?
