Halloween. Hurrying up to put the final touches on my M&M submissions. Getting ready for a giant yard sale this coming weekend. Trying to finish the last details of signing up for a spring semester of classes. Paying the bills. Weird hours at the day job. A boyfriend. A crazy clan. The Carolina Romance Writers November meeting. All of my critique circle and writer pals being just as busy as I am.
All reasons why signing up for NaNoWriMo is a freaking bad idea, ya’ll!
Yet here I am, joining the throng of crazy people and my fellow Bad Girl Sydney, to write 50k in 30 days. Even though I’ve completed novels before and I know I can do it, it’s still an excuse to bust out my next book as fast as I can. It doesn’t get much faster than that. My rough drafts are normally 50k-65k and another 15k-20k get added in edits. Why? No freaking clue. Plus, I love meeting other writers and exchanging crazy stories about late night push for the final chapter and the weirdest place we’ve written a love scene and- *DEEP BREATH*
My nano handle is ‘drcydrke’ (identical to Twitter) and here’s my little page. Not sure how to add someone as a friend yet, but I will! …If you leave the link to your page, I’ll try to figure it out. *g*
