Week 39: NaNoWriMo

It's almost October, which can only mean 1 thing:


Last year was a massive failure. I think I got maybe 10k words in, even less than that if memory serves.

To be fair, this time last year I was busy with nursing prerequisites (Anatomy & Physiology is no joke, guys), but I still feel like I could have cranked out at least half of the required 50k. But that's neither here nor there. It's a new year, and I will be writing come November. Woo!

In previous years, I've mostly been a pants-er, but I'm going to have a whirl at plotting this time around just to see if I get different results.

I'm also going to be rehashing a novel I've been writing for a while (I swear, I feel like I've been procrastinating writing this one for years now). I love the premise, I love the characters I've come up with, and it's high time I write it, even if it sucks.

I have a Novlr account and plan on using that all month long as well as beyond November. I've been remiss in using the service (oops), so I better get my money's worth! In all seriousness, it's a great program, and I prefer it to Scrivener. Scrivener is too messy and overwhelming to me, so I appreciate Novlr's simplistic approach. They're coming out with new features all the time too, so I see it really being a force to reckon with in the writing world. #notanad

For the next month, I'm going to post weekly (maybe more, depending on how frisky I'm feeling) with my prep progress as well as other NaNo-related stuff, so let's make October a fun month, shall we?

Is anyone else participating? What's your method for success?
