What in the world, you may be asking, is Nanowrimo?
Most of us in the publishing world know ... Na= National No=Novel Wri=Writing Mo=Month.
Every year, thousands sign up, committing themselves to write a first draft novel. This means it's not quite ready for publication, but all the bones of the story have been set in place.
I did this one year. And only one year. The best made plans of this mouse ...
But this year, I'm back in the game. I have to be; I have a novel (novella) due at the beginning of next month.
Today is November 3, which means I have 27 days to write 30,000 words of my very first Christmas novella. Now, I'm going to be upfront with you--I've already written 4,166 words. But, before you go thinking "that's not fair ..." let's just say it's "grace words." Because, in all honesty, I've got lots of other things to do this month. Turkeys to bake ... pieces to edit ... Christmas decorations to sort through ... companies to run ...
But keep up with me, okay? Each day I'll try to give a little update, to tell you more about the novella I'm calling "Charlie's Christmas Carol."
Here we go!
