Am I Built for Nano?


So I'm going to attempt NaNoWriMo for the first time this year after the nudging of friends and Jedi mind tricking of Tina Lynn. I'm a little apprehensive about the whole thing honestly. I'm an edit as I go person and tend to draft slower and then have less to revise afterwards. With Exposure Therapy, it took me four months to write the rough draft, but then I only had one minor revision round before querying. (Of course, I had more revisions once Sara signed me and will have more with my editor, but still.)


So the thought of busting out 50k words willy nilly gives me hives. BUT I am going to try anyway (with maybe some editing along the way, lol.) If I end up with 30k relatively polished words by the end of the month and not 50k haphazard ones, I'll be fine with that too.

If you're playing along and want to friend me.  Here's my page:

Also, for anyone who missed yesterday's post, I'm doing a Twitter experiment. If you're looking for a crit partner or beta reader, go on twitter and Tweet your genre and what you're looking for with the hashtag #betamatch to find others to match up with. :)

So, who's joining me? And for those participating--what are you most excited or worried about? Have you done Nano before?

Have a great Halloween everyone!
