Last year I started ‘The Lady Winter’ for Nanowrimo. I got about 17,000 words into the story and then ground to a halt.
This was still my best attempt at Nanowrimo to date.
However, this year I am determined. I will write fifty thousand words within the month of November and I will complete a first draft of a novel so that I can at least say I have managed that. I will not be starting from scratch though.
It is my intention to continue ‘The Lady Winter’ and simply add another 50,000 words onto the draft that I already have. Since I ground to a halt last year I am going to spend the rest of this month planning out what will happen in the book and doing a little bit of editing on what exists. I don’t really want another incomplete novel hanging around my bedroom so this seemed like the most reasonable course of action.
We shall see how it goes.
