Well, I’ve learned how to pronounce it at least.
Yes, this year, I plan to devote one month to writing a novel that is not silly romances. It is terrifying.
My main issue is the word count. Somedays I seiously struggle to put out 500 words. I don’t know how or why I think I can hit 1667 a day with NaNoWriMo. Hubris? Probably.
Right now, I’ve got outlines. Four to be exact. One of them is realtively detailed in a 27 cahpter format with 3k word developmental arcs. I really like that structure. Thanks, Katytastic!
I’m super lucky in that this month of writing is being financially sponsored by my husband and my parents. I’m still making my car payments (Thanks, Smut!), but I have no other obligation that will prevent me from true focus on my goals.
Trying to get the tiktok thing up and going is daunting as well. Since I won’t be able to publish anything smutty during the month, I’m working doubly hard to market what I’ve already written.
Imposter Syndrome is real. I learned this while experiencing intense feelings of inadequacy about my writing after seeing some reviews (2.9 stars on Amazon). Let’s face it. My sexy romance writting is not high literature.
But here’s the interesting part of it all. My worst rated story is also my BEST SELLING story—like ever—over any other line (I have three pens currently).
Anyway. I’m starting up the YouTube Channel again. I’ll be posting how to publish a novel from your iPad and iPhone. I’m hoping it will encourage everyone out there to use their products most efficiently as they work their way through life and NaNoWriMo2023.
I'm a technology curriculum facilitator, and I'm excited about integrating technology in the classroom.
