Unfortunately, I will be bowing out of NaNoWriMo this year. I haven’t really written since that first burst of writing during week 1. Usually, my characters and their motivations write themselves, but since I had zero planning, my characters didn’t have any motivations.
It’s hard to write like that.
I will be shelving my project for next November, doing a little bit of research and development in the meantime so that I’m ready to write 50,000 words next year. It is already on my resolutions blog. (Can you believe I’ve started drafting a resolutions post already? I have almost 30 drafts for blog posts, so… I need to get to publishing!)
