NaNoWriMo 2014

After recommendations from friends and authors alike, I’ve decided to jump on to the NaNoWriMo bandwagon!

For those of you that don’t know what NaNoWriMo is, it’s basically people all over the world spending the month of November writing 50,000 words – i.e. a novel. Which is about 1667 words a day – reachable but definitely difficult.
I’m hoping to write the first draft of The Descendants of The Month Children trilogy. I’m still deciding what to call the first book, but I know everything that happens and have already started planning.
The point of NaNoWriMo is to get people writing and managing to get a huge bulk (or all) of their book written in a month. You don’t edit during November – only write! And as someone that is always editing, I think it’s going to be a bit of a challenge for me but I will try all the same.
Another challenge is NaNoWriMo starts 1 November – my new book, Searching For Katherine, comes out 31 October. I HAVE NO BREAK! I also have a lot of assignments due in November so I’m trying to get them all done and handed in early so I don’t have to worry about it.
If you’re taking part this year, let me know and we can support each other! If you’re a Canterbury local we can even do writing groups and coffee meets.
Add me on Twitter @melissaholden94 and we can tweet each other encouragements!
