Are You Ready to NaNo!?


So sorry for a two week skip. That was very bad of me. I am offering myself up for a spanking if anyone feels they must. Not sure exactly where my head has been. But now it's time to gear up for NaNoWriMo, so I need to get with the program.

I've got my victim, suspect, and have planned my inciting event, along with the characters who will be there... I just need to sort my clues and how they will pop up then plop them on a timeline.

For anybody wanting the personal touch, don't forget to join BuNoWriMo in addition to the formal NaNo site. It is a bit more personal—smaller group so we get to know each other.

As for what I am writing—a mystery. My buddy is off a breakup so I offered to kill her ex, but I am planting it in Portland in my Micro-brewery setting—I am starting with the grand opening—going BEFORE the other book I wrote, hoping to figure out the character piece that was off before so people love Kenny like I love Kenny.

So who else is playing? Are you planning ahead or diving in the day of?

I never plan ahead but I'm finishing the book I started last year. I've just been through a very intense time with the Muskrat Falls protest and we've been given a small victory. Since my mystery is set in Sheshatshiu and Muskrat Falls already figures in the plot, I believe I have new energy to finish it. Good luck with yours and I love that you are going back in time to an earlier version of your heroine!

That's a cool setting for a mystery. Go for it, Hart! I'm sitting this year out.

You're a good friend! I cannot wait to read your November mystery!

Nice! Best of luck with Nano.

Good luck. Next month will be frantic for me with three book releases, so not a chance I'd have time to write.

Thought I'd try something different and do a ton of prep for this NaNo. Not sure if it will work, but I definitely need to do something to shake things up.

Good luck to you! :)

I'm so glad you're writing a prequel to the Portland microbrewery mystery (which you'll remember I read and really enjoyed). I'm really looking forward to seeing Kenny again.

I'm doing NaNo, too, for the first time that is, and I have no idea what I'm doing so I'm just going to write blindly until it's done and i'll take stock then. Good luck!
