Hey, remember when I pledged to write at least 1000 words a day for the entire month of May, and somehow managed to pull it off? Well, I’m doing it all again – except this time, 1000 words a day won’t be quite enough.
I’ve attempted NaNoWriMo many times, and never made it past the first week. But this time will be different. This time, I’ve got the story all planned out – none of this seat-of-your-pants bullshit. This time, there’s a defined structure, and I know all of my characters. It’s almost as if I’ve written this story before. Because I have, just not as a novel.
Taking A-Z and transitioning it from a story meant for the screen to one that lives on the page will be tricky. I’ve already made a lot of changes, and I’m sure I’ll make many more. But this is the first time I’ve gone into NaNoWriMo with such thorough preparation, and I’m determined not to lose.
Are you signed up for NaNo? If so, let’s be writing buddies! You can find me here.
