Who’s doing it next month? NaNoWriMo, that is. I was in two minds about it this year – only because I still have SEVEN novels to edit and if I write another in November it will be EIGHT. That’s just mental and way too much stress.
But I can’t NOT do NaNoWriMo! I’ve done it every year since 2011 (the only year I failed miserably) and I think I’ll feel as if I’ve let myself down if I don’t do it.
So this year I’m joining the rebellion. That’s right. I’m going to be a NaNo Rebel. A Rebel is basically anyone who wants to do something else besides write a 50,000-word novel during the month of November. In my case, I’m going to edit a novel I’ve already written, and, so I can still put in a “word count”, for every hour of editing/rewriting I’ll add 1,000 words to my total (that’s how Camp NaNoWriMo used to work before they updated the site to be more flexible). So hopefully I’ll have 50 hours of editing under my belt by the end of November.
I’m really excited now. NaNoWriMo here I come! Again.
As I’ve been a Whovian forever, I was also really excited to see the 13th Doctor, Jodie Whittaker, in her debut episode yesterday (Australian time). I think she was brilliant. I loved the episode – I laughed a lot and even cried a little – and was so thrilled when she said: “I’m the Doctor”. I’m really looking forward to seeing the rest of her new adventures.
And finally, I’ve updated my website. I’ve added more book reviews and also snippets and summaries of my works in progress. I’d really love it if you’d click on the link and let me know what you think! I’m always looking for ways to improve.
