So I'm Doing NaNoWriMo...

I wanted to participate in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) last year, but for whatever reason I didn't. I was probably working on another project and didn't want to split my time, but I'm not certain. I did, though, tell my self that when it came around next year, if I hadn't done it by then, I would participate--and Lupus Moon would be my project. Well, here we are, on the cusp of November, and I have yet to bring Lupus Moon to fruition, so I guess I'd better keep my word to myself and jump right in.

I have no idea what to expect. I'm daunted by the task of hitting at least 1,667 words a day for 30 straight days (including Thanksgiving). Sure, I could miss target on some days and make them up on others, or take days off altogether as long as I hit 50,000 words by the end of the month, but if I'm going to do this, I want to do it the "right" (read: hard) way. If I'm successful, it will easily be the most writing I've done in a month-long period. But hey, no guts, no glory, right?

I'll be documenting my daily process here. Feel free to join me on my journey. Feel even freer to wish me luck. I'm going to need it...

“Behind the Ink” – Nerds of Prey Interview

I recently had the honor of being interviewed by Shannon Miller of the popular “Nerds of Prey” podcast about “The Life and Times of Abigail Waller,” its origins, and my creative process (which, admittedly, needs a lot of work and a helluva lot more discipline). Check out the interview here and make sure you check out the “Nerds of Prey” podcast!
