Looking Toward NaNoWriMo!
With the second draft of Living Legend done and into the hands of my beta readers, I have a month to fill before NaNoWriMo begins. What to do…
Getting this website looking presentable would be a start! Without a daily word count weighing on my mind, perhaps I’ll finally be able to get my 3 W’s in order.
Secondly, I have a few short stories I’d like to write in October. One of which is a Zombie short that will be on Amazon in time for Halloween.
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, my NaNoWriMo story will be planned out. Yes, I am a chronic outliner. Without an outline there’s not way I’d be able to write 50,000 words in the month of November. Here’s a little sneak preview to what my NaNo story will be about.
In the year 2037, the ultimate vacation is to take control of another person’s body for one week. Vicarious, the most successful travel agent, acquires the most desirable people in the world as their assets.
When Eric Wikstrom, the most popular and highest paid asset in the business, finds himself in the middle of a murder scene it seems everyone wants him dead, including his employers at Vicarious.
That’s right! Sci-fi! I’ve never tried science fiction before, beyond the odd short story that wasn’t very good. What makes me think I can write an entire book when I can’t even make a short story work? Cockiness, and an idea that I’m really excited about.
If you’ve ever though about writing a book, I highly suggest you try NaNoWriMo, staring November 1st. If you make it through the month, and maybe even if you don’t, it will train you to do a little bit of writing each day, and really, that’s the secret of continually finishing what you’re working on.
