NaNoWriMo begins in a little over 15 days and I am scrambling to get my reviews posted. The slowest part is getting all the fabulous books I have scheduled read. I read pretty fast, but I still am struggling. Of course, if you know me by now, you know that when I struggle to complete a project, I blog. Not the most productive way to handle a deadline, but it is how I roll.
So my calendar is packed with books and review dates when I catch a cold that settles in my head. Oh yes, I am talking about a massive eye pressing sinus headache for 5 days. 5 days without reading a book. As you can imagine, that puts me way behind schedule. So I have been scurrying about with a book on the computer, one of the Kindle, and a paperback in my hand. I am catching up so I have not lost faith in my trusty calendar.
Yet I am rolling around several ideas as to how I want to NaNo this year. I have begun the sequel to The Path of the Child. I am 3 chapters in. I guess less than 10,000 words. So I can set those to one side and concentrate on adding an additional 50,000 words through the course of November.
Another potential plan is to write 2 smaller books that are my secret projects I mentioned recently. I am only afraid there are not 50,000 words between them.
Idea three. Start fresh with no plan, like I have done with the past 3 NaNoWriNo years.
I am not sure if I work on all three project, will I become unfocused? Will I miss my goal? If I start something new, what will happen to That Path to the Past?
All relevant questions that I am asking myself. Of course, I know I will still have reading time, but I will not have a calendar packed with a review or two a day like October and September were.
I am curious as to your ideas, input, and thoughts, on my dilemma. I know I will be participating, I will be striving for 50,000 words. I am just not sure what to work on. Any feedback will be listened to and appreciated. I
