Nanowrimo 2013.

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’m in Gerry and really looking forward to the challenge!!! My NaNo handle is the same as here if you’d like to look me up! – Cathy G

  2. 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.

    1. 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.. 😉

  3. 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.

    1. Hello Rob,, reading your blog, I would say you have the knack,,, you might surprise yourself if you give it a try… Thank you for your wanted support,, hopefully will do updates here.. welcome 😉

  4. 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!

    1. Kate thank you,, i seem to be able to write when a time limit is given,,, I have been doing a story on my Sitting on the Porch blog called The Parchment’ and it will be this one I intend to complete with,,, will do updates…appreciated and welcome. 😉

    1. No problem Rob, it is still in the writing mode, but is being posted in parts on the Sitting on the Porch blog of mine.. thank you for this .. welcome always 😉

    1. 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. 😉

      1. 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.

      2. 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… 😉
