NaNo Week 3 – I give in!


It’s official I quit lol

I have decided that even trying to complete NaNo this year is just a huge NoNo, the experience has not been a total waste of time though.

I realised that the novel I was attempting during this NaNo was not suited to this style of writing, it is the second book of my trilogy and requires far too much concentration to keep it in line with what has already taken place than I can deal with when a clock is ticking.  I know some people can easily keep several timelines etc running at the same time but between work, pets and kids it is just not possible for me.

So what have I learnt… well basically for me I need to do more planning before hand both in terms of preparing blog posts upfront and for the story I intend to work on.  I think for me the best type of story to work on in NaNo will be a stand alone type book and in hind sight I may have fared better had I gone with the Vampire book.

So prior to next year I will ensure I have cleared the deck in terms of other writing commitments so I can focus solely on NaNo and I will do my chapter/plot outline prior to November so I can be sure I have time to do any extra research that crops up.

I am not disappointed… okay I lie I am but not too badly now back to writing
