NaNoWriMo 2007: And so it begins… sort of. ^_~

  • Post category:Writing

Okay, so NaNoWriMo 2007 is around the corner and it’s time to try another way of approaching the 50k goal. This year my plan is to actually try and map out the basic story before I start, then breaking it into 1,667 word chunks. That way I have thirty days of posting planned out and I can just hop back and forth filling the bits in as the Muse strikes. ^_^

Of course this doesn’t mean that things will stick to plan (just look at Hushed and White With Snow!) but it’s worth a try. Heck, 2005’s just hop in without a plan didn’t work, and 2006’s hop in with only a rough plan didn’t work, so maybe the ‘plan like crazy’ will! ^_~

My name is Martha Bechtel and I write fantasy and science fiction stories, paint small model horses silly colors, cast resin and plaster magnets, code random code (and Wordpress plugins)... Come on in and join in the fun!

    yeah… i don’t know if i’m even going to be able to do it this year… but i do have a laptop and I didn’t last year… i just don’t know what my schedule is going to be like.

      Well, it can’t hurt to try, yeah? ^_^

      Or you could go the route instead. A bit slower going, but you’d still have a novel before the year is out! *grin*

    I’m gonna take a shot at it again this year. Which means I totally need to get my act together soon too…

    I know I did it with flying colors last year, but this year I have the added stress of college and a job…

      Yeah, real life always manages to get in the way for me… I’m a little overloaded this Nov which is why I’m trying to plan ahead! ^_~ At least I have the car ride to Buffalo, NY and back for Thanksgiving to play catch-up! *grin*
