Word Count: Zero
For the first time on this blog, a story has emerged that is not from an old idea.
That means, this year, I can participate in NaNoWriMo without thinking that I'm cheating.
However, I'm still cheating.
I have begun the outlining process (since September 17th) and will have a guide to the story. The difference in this outline is that it's super intensive. I didn't jump in and start writing this one with a half baked idea with nowhere to go. It makes me feel like a professional or something.
If the schedule goes well, I'll have everything I need to begin on November 1st. I may have everything ready before then and start writing. My goal is to only have one update for the story, which will be during Thanksgiving. If I can complete this goal, I can prove to myself that writing a novel in 30 days is doable.
When I set out on my writing adventure my goal was a release every 30 days.
That doesn't work for me.
Since then, I've learned a lot about myself and my writing. I hope you'll see improvement in this next story!
