Monday Musings

PLEASE NOTE:  This post contains humble brags.

Ok.  Now that that's out of the way I have some exciting news.  I am actually ahead of the game when it comes to NaNoWriMo. Wtf, right?

I always thought that when it came to writing I was a panster, or someone who goes into their writing with no plan.  Just an idea.  But as it turns out, the way for my to successfully get my daily writing done was all in the plotting.  Who knew?

So I decided to go into NaNo with a plan this year.  I spent the last couple of days of October working on a character list and outlining the first few chapters of my novel in Google Drive.  I figured that at least having the beginning of a plan would be worth it.  And as it turns out, it was!

The only problem is that I don't have the whole novel outlined.  Just the first half.  So I have had to be vigilant about getting my daily writing done, but also getting some plotting done as well.  It's hard, but also a lot of fun!

How has NaNoWriMo been going for you?  Let me know in the comments.

Take care,
Marian
