It's nearly time...

Today, like thousands of others, I sat with my cursor on the 'refresh' symbol, waiting for the NaNoWriMo site to relaunch.

Although I'm still in love with the thought of "The Twelfth Princess Dances", I've decided that finishing "The Roadkeeper's Daughter" comes first. 50,000 words will see it finished and ready for editing, so I'm going to blitz it and enjoy the feeling of having completed an entire novel again! I'll either work on "12th" in December/January while I'm letting "Roadkeeper's" settle, or I'll do it for NaNo next year.

I'm now all set up on the NaNo site, complete with a sleek new cover mock-up design. Feel free to add me as a writing buddy! Ready, set...

  1. I am nothing if not a succumber to peer pressure.

    I don't exactly have a novel (and I certainly don't have the time) nor do I have an interest to do 1600 words/day -- I want to do 400/day -- but I have decided to go ahead and sign up my 400 Words, since it's been languishing a bit, but I've still been building up the ideas.

  2. Yay! 400 words/day is an excellent amount for keeping up a year-round writing habit.

    I'm going to have to read your Quadringentaverba when I've got some time. The bit I've skimmed looks absolutely fascinating and compelling.
