National Novel Writing Month a.k.a. NaNoWriMo

Well, it’s that time of year again. I generally participate, but only in the mini-NaNo that the writing group I belong to runs. Instead of 50k words written in November, we pick our own word count. This year I’ve scaled down and am only going for 8k. I’m working on book 5 in my Detective Hodgins series. So far I’m sitting at about 2500 words. Don’t write every day. The plan was Fri to Sun, but that hasn’t worked out exactly as expected.

I’ve been distracted by finishing up the long over-due book 3 in the D.E.M.ON. Tales series. At least it will finally be released on Friday the 13th. This series is a tongue-in-cheek look at demons, criptids and mythological beasties. E-book only, but every two books will be put to print in a flip-book. Next one is schedule to be released early next year.

Working on the words

I’m trying to get the first draft finished for my New Adult paranormal book.I’m a little under 34,ooo words to far.

I managed just over 700 words Thursday night while I was waiting for the Sisters in Crime meeting to get started, and hit the library this afternoon to do some more. Got a total of 1748 words yesterday and today, which is well below my target. Oh well, at least  got something written.
