Back from the Land of NaNo

Winner-2014-Web-Banner

I’m back from the land of NaNoWriMo 2014. And what a trip is was! I’m already looking forward to Camp NaNo in July. There’s something about knowing your part of a tribe of writers from all over the world that are all together in this journey of reaching the destination of 50,000 words in a month that creates drive, motivation, and determination. And FUN! 🙂

I wrote the first draft of the first book in my Melanie Hogan cozy mystery series, Shear Madness, during Camp NaNo this past July, and during NaNo in November I penned (typed) the first draft of the second book in the series, Shear Deception. What fun to create characters and settings that will continue on, as well as plots bubbling up that can carry over into future books. My muse was very busy!

God willing, I will finish the edits on both and have them completed and out this year.

If any of you that are reading this participated in NaNoWriMo 2014 I would love to hear how it went. Did you reach your goal? What did you work on? Do you have any tips for those thinking of participating next year, or in Camp NaNo in April and July? What was your biggest take away from the experience?

Carpe Diem

  1. I didn’t get to participate as I had planned because life got in the way, or rather a big, unavoidable project came up. But I do hope to in April and July. 🙂 So when you say you hope to have both edited and out this year do you mean 2014? WOW! That’s amazing! And so cool that you are writing sequels! Congratulations! 😀
