Countdown to BuNoWriMo!!!!

HALO, Peeps!!! It's that time of year again!!! Have you been thinking about it? Are you ready?

Ready for WHAT you say? Have you been ASLEEP!?

BuNoWriMo is FOUR this year, if you can believe that. We began it BEFORE they began the summer Camp WriMo, and even during NaNoWriMo, we are a fabulous SUPPORTIVE writing group. During NaNoWriMo in November, it is just a place to talk with people you know better. So you can do this INSTEAD of Camp NaNoWriMo or you can do this on TOP OF Camp NaNoWriMo...

What do you DO? Why write a 50K book in 30 days! (the 30 days of June)  What else.

But we are super bendy and if you want to shake up that goal, that's cool with us. Just look at your MONTH and what needs DOING and set a goal that is a little ambitious... that will get you writing more than you normally do. If you only have part of the month, then only DO part of the month.

What you REALLY need to know is WHERE.

BuNoWriMo is hosted by The Burrow, which is my writing group (made up of 4 score blondes and brunettes between sixteen and nineteen and a half...)

And we host it on Facebook HERE:

There are over a hundred of us there, so it is much larger than just the Burrow—has been from the beginning... and ALL of you are WELCOME!

First year I wrote Kahlotus Disposal Site (currently going through big eval, but this was an ABNA semi-finalist, so it will eventually get out there.

Second year wrote What Ales Me (my current editing project)

Last year I wrote Shot in the Light (or half of it... it is at 120K now and not quite done...)

Not sure what this year's project will be... I may do an evaluation of endangered, restructured as a serial, and try to jam out the rest of that. I am going to miss the last week, as my family is traveling, so I may put a 40K goal instead of 50K... Still thinking... but see... we are flexible that way...

So who's in!?

Hark, hark: I can attest to the fact that this is a fabulous, supportive and super-fun group of people! And I enjoy hanging out at the BuNo FB page during November as well ;)

In other words, yeah, I'm in! And I think I'm going with the 1st idea, and am gonna let the 2nd stew a bit longer, just FYI. :)

Hmm? Tempted.

I don't think I'll participate this year, but I wrote CassaStorm last year during BuNo.

Tina said...

I'm in. Loved it, was it two years ago, even though I only got 17%. at least it was more words than zero. I'll be continuing on my long in process work...Worlds Colliding, which has been dying to get out of my brain but all that mother and wife stuff keeps interfering. I've told people that June is for me to write. They can listen or not, but they all know how to cook...

BTW, thanks for your comments on my blog today on Game of Thrones. It helps to know these background details.

I need to do something like this but I have some June plans that will interfere with a lot of things I'd like to do.

Have fun with it and may everyone be very productive.

I don't think I'll be in officially, but I want to use it as a goalpost for editing, polishing, and finally truly finishing my Charity book.

Jan Morrison said...

I'm in! I just finished the last thing I can do on Bright Angel before beta readers weigh in - think I'll revise The Rock Walker. That's my goal so far!

Laura said...

Okay - so I'm in, but this will be the only blog mention of it! I made it too much about the talking about it last year and worried too much where everyone else was up to... So yeah - I'm playing and may lurk a little on FB... but other than that, no mention :) Also not going to be letting anyone in the 'real world' know :) hehehe

Writing in June-- interesting. I joined the group. Maybe that'll help me get a few more words on the pages this month!
