I was not going to do this.

NaNoWriMo is just around the corner.

I swore at the end of last NaNo that I would not do this again. Two years, and each time I decided I did not like it. I did not like the pace. I did not like the stress. I would not do it again. Two years was enough to determine that it wasn’t for me, right?


But now it’s nearly here. And I like the jump in the word count. I like watching the word count bar fill up.

This will be my first not-Poseidon related project.

Which reminds me that I still need to revise Poseidon: A Narrative and get that published.


So, the first book of my (desperately needs a new name)Marriage trio, A Marriage of Land and Sea, is finished. I mean, I have the final final going out the door to subscribers edits to finish for November and December, but otherwise, done. I know how the second book will start, but I’m not starting that next.

The title for the next subscription story is The Midnight Circle! I can say that it involves a woman inheriting a yarn shop from an aunt she never knew about, and discovering a lot more about her family than she bargained for. There may be vampires. There will definitely be shapeshifters. And witches. And knitting.

Beyond that, I cannot say. If the stories are well received, there may be a book involved at some point . . .

Also, Igraine’s Flight is one step closer to having a solid release date.

Very mundane post, this.

So . . . anyone else doing NaNo?

  1. Oooooh! The knitting, and the shifters and vampires! Loves it already! 😀

    I’m going to NaNo, but I’m writing songs. So I don’t think I’ll be able to have the word count jumps, but it’ll be good to get some things down!

  2. I usually do, but this year depends on whether I get my current Big Work Project done on time AND still have the brain cells left when it’s done (quite the caveat!) I know what you mean about the word count bar, it’s such a satisfying feeling! And I like the little graph too! Best of luck to all participating : )

  3. I’m thinking about doing NaNoWriMo. I’ve got story ideas bouncing around in my head, but I remember how it burnt me out last year. So right now it’s up in the air.

  4. I’m doing NaNo again this year, but I’m going to steer away from the stress of the word count. I spent more time stressed than writing! On the other hand, the other stuff (visiting the forums, writing soundtrack swap) are a lot of fun.
