NaBloPoMo Day Sixteen: NaNoWriMo

NaBloPoMo_1114_465x287_NOV_zps8d81cd05Take the NaNoWriMo challenge, and proudly display the Viking crest!Well, I have completed NaNoWriMo in record time. Being the overachiever that I am, I worked on two novels at once.

The primary novel I managed to get a little over 58k in words. The secondary, however, I fell short on. It seems finished, I cant seem to find anymore in my brain to add to it, unless I go back and see if I can fluff the chapters a little. I only managed 41k in the word count. I’m going to step back from it for a few days, and maybe something will come to life for me to add. We’ll see.

During NaNo, I’ve been trying to be a cheerleader to those who added me as buddies. I send, and will still send, little notes of encouragement. I check my buddies word counts and give pep talks. I’ve even made two pretty good friends. One is here in my local area, too!

NaNoWriMo has been a great experience. I will indeed participate in coming years, and be as big of a supporter as I can, and hopefully be an encouragement to others.

NaBloPoMo still has the rest of the month to go! I admit, some days I just don’t want to come up with something to share, but I do it. I push myself. I want to be fun, entertaining and insightful. I love writing, and sharing, but you know, I’m human, I have insecurities and self doubts. I don’t get much feed-back on anything at all. Its discouraging, especially with trying to promote a book. Do people even want to read it? Is it a dud? Those are the questions I tend to ask myself.

But I’m determined not to let it all keep me from publishing. I have so many books to publish. Between the horror genre and the erotica, I have about 20 novels. I just need a fan base and readers…lol. Cant buy those!

So, with the satisfaction of NaNo sitting nicely within me, I aim to work on NaBloPoMo, and working on my other writing. And reading. Blogs and books. I have found a wealth of wonderful bloggers to follow here! So hats off to you all! And if you are a NaNo participant, keep on writing! If you need anything at all…pep talk, idea bouncing, a shoulder to cry on…I’m here!

      You can do it! I’m rootin’ for ya! I know what you mean about learning a bit about yourself through the experience. My toughest challenge was not editing as I went along…lol. Dont do it! Its a trap! πŸ˜€

  2. Holy smokes! You’ve written nearly 100,000 words for two novels, and the month is just halfway over?? You’re a writing locomotive! Congrats on getting so many words out for your two stories!

    I’m well impressed and a bit awed… I don’t think my keyboard has that many words in it… Okay, so I’ve never had a month of not working to try writing in, but still. Well done you! πŸ™‚
