I've never participated in NaNoWriMo before, so this will be a first. I will also be known as a NaNoWriMo Revision Rebel, too.
In a nutshell, the rules are you set a goal to write 50K words during the month of November, which translates to 1,667 words per day. If you want more information, then check out NaNoWriMo here. Honestly, if you're able to get through 10K words as a novelist, then you've won. I've heard many writers swear by this technique to get your butt in the chair, so I thought I would give it a shot--sort of--too. One thing I caution against and that's thinking you've written a masterpiece. If you've been at this a while, then you know that the 50K words is most likely a first draft and probably something you don't want to put out in the general public.
For me, I really need to do revisions on another trilogy I've been working on because I've FINALLY figured out how it's going to end and it's awesome!! The problem is I also want to make sure the first two books support that ending, which I'm sure 90% they do. But...I need to make sure. That's where the revisions come into play. I probably won't be writing 50K words to make NaNoWriMo, but I'm pretty sure I'll be reading over 150K for this trilogy and revising around half of that. That's where the "rebel" comes into play.
So what's this trilogy about? Here's a hint.
