NaNo Poster2.47

It is that time of year again, yes ladies and gentlemen it is Nanowrimo again. I have signed up for the third year running for this November challenge.  I have participated in 2011/2012 and this year it also included my participation in the two Campnano’s [May and July] and have been successful in all, completed all the word counts. This coming November, I am a little unsure as to my project, I have been doing a story on my other site and some pre working on it. This project  I am thinking of doing is called……..

It might be slightly cheating but it is a project that I have been working on for a while, I could actually go back to one of my other projects or stories that I am still working on and trying to finish. Rather unsuccessfully I might say. I have four stories, full length stories and managed to finish only two so far. So I do have plenty of choices.

I have not read about any of you doing this challenge,, I would love to know if any of you are participating. Leave me a note,, of become writing buddies for inspiration if we need it.

  1. I was seriously contemplating this but setting aside all internet except for emails to do so. Hmmmm, I would be starting from scratch except for the concept.

  4. It is a good incentive, but if like me one already has two unfinished manuscripts in stock it is a mistake to get side-tracked. Maybe it would be a good idea to aim to add the number of words one would expect from a wrimo book. I know mine are going to be much longer than that in total.

    • Yes Col’ you are right, my first and original story,, has become longer than first intended.. It is however a thought of mine to try and continue to finish, and by doing it on Nano this might be the right incentive. Thanks for your valued point.. 😉

  5. I really thought about it, Gerry, but I’ve been focusing on short stories lately — trying to get a book of them ready before Christmas. So I think I’ll have to pass. But I’ll be cheering you on.

  9. Wow, Gerry ~ I really, really, really admire you for doing this writing challenge. I SO don’t have the stick-to-it-ive-ness to do it! My tutoring keeps me too scattered to focus on writing and even commenting on blogs. I have been neglectful and down in the dumps about it. i am pulling for you to have a fabulous time writing your book in November!!!! SOOO impressed!

  12. I MOST definitely think you should use this challenge to finish “The Parchment,” because I want to know how it ends!!! Oh … did I already say that?

  13. You know, I may have said this before, but I definitely think you should use this challenge to finish “The Parchment.”

    • My early morning you are starting it off for me with a huge smile, and yes you have said it,, Nano has now started and yes I am doing The Parchment’ i have done a few more chapters which I might post, but probably wait now until I finish the story… in the past week or two I have been working on it and getting characters and story line and it looks that I might finish this one as well… will keep updating with a post or two. thanks.. ps will send you a copy if you wish.. did I say you sent the same comment a couple of times. 😉

      Comment by cobbies69 | November 1, 2013 | Reply

      • I would be delighted for you to send me a copy, but I’m not sure if you will put it out in a bound version or for e-readers. I don’t have an e-reader. But if sending me a copy proves problematic, you could always mail a manuscript version as an e-mail attachment. I could read it from there. Anyway, I’m cheering you on. I kept being tempted to get into NaNoWriMo this time, but I just have so many irons in the fire that I don’t think I’d do any of it justice if I commit to that too.

        Comment by sandraconner | November 1, 2013

      • I will let you know when done and arrange to send it.. one thing I ask is for a viewpoint on it.. I find Nano and time scales work for me… 😉

        Comment by cobbies69 | November 1, 2013

  14. Not this time round. Maybe one day I will jump in and give it a try 🙂
