NaNoWriMo and JulNoWriMo

Does this sound like gibberish to you?  So most of us are familiar with NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and a lot of us even participate in it.  But there’s an unofficial JulNoWriMo, as well, where we write a 50,000 word novel in the month of July.  And I think I’m going to dive in.

I need the deadline.  I need the push.  The demon story is kick-kick-kicking the back of my head in, and I think a flurried rush of writing would be an excellent way to exorcise it.  So I’m coming in a week late, but I already have 10,000 words written on the story, so there we go.  My struggle right now is to carve out time to write, and this will force me to prioritize or else I shall die a slow, painful, Palin-like death.  And I don’t want to die.

My story “Lady Luck” is out in Bards and Sages Quarterly.  Rock!

  1. Wow. You do like challenges, don’t you? I’m very slowly writing a novel, but I don’t see finding the time to get it done in a month. (Although 50k would actually come close to finishing my 85k book!)

    So when I win the challenge, will your excuse be that you were writing a book?

    That’s right, when I WIN the challenge! Bwah hah ha. Haaaaa!.

    Congrats btw on the Bards and Sages story, that’s very cool! …

    I mean… Loooooser!

  2. Cate- editing is the WORST THING IN THE WORLD. I send my sympathy and support!

    Matt- Your trash talk makes my day. Seriously. If we were in a boxing ring, we’d strut around yelling at each other without landing a punch. Until I go all Waco on your head.

    and Natalie- I’m not scared of you!

    Well, okay. Maybe a little. 😉
