Since I’ve been
pretendin g to be hacked by Czar Spiest this month on Twitter, I haven’t really been able to talk about the upcoming NaNoWriMo much. I considered joining discussion, but, ghooosts…
Anyway, like the last two years, I’ll be writing 50,000 words (or trying–this is the first year I have a job along with it, presumably, so I have much less time, but also I can focus all my time at home on it instead of having schoolwork and essays to do) in November. Like last year, it’ll be a novel I plan to publish later (last year was my next novel; this year will be the one after that. Because progression!)
I don’t want to reveal too much about it yet, but there’ll be some info about it on my NaNo page; it’s currently titled Wandering Fortunes and features a brand new cast of characters and setting, though it remains in the same universe as Slubes. And I don’t know if it will be done in 50,000 words–my rough estimate is 80,000, but I won’t have a good estimate until I’ve written a few chapters and can know how long they will be on average (as, unlike my first two novels, this one will have chapters).
Like last year, I’ll be posting updates on my word count on Twitter (assuming that ghost gets outta my account!), along with how many chapters I’m through and maybe the names. I may have a chart up on this site; I’m not sure yet.
By the way, I’ve been meaning to actually make a front page for this place so the blog isn’t the front, but I keep forgetting. MAYBE I’ll do it tomorrow? Sunday would basically be my last chance until December.
Anyway, to NaNo! Anyone else going for it?
