Good grief, it’s the first Wednesday of the month already, and I haven’t managed to blog since last month! Not even about being featured in last month’s Writing Magazine (Yes, moi!) about Nano, which is what this month’s IWSG post covers (surprise!)
(By the way, here’s part of the reason I’ve been busy – new addition to the family).
So, back to Nano. This month’s question is; Win or not, do you usually finish your nano project? Have any of them gone on to be published?
Well, last year was the first time I took part in nano, so my ‘average’ answer will be based on just the one occurrence.
Last year I ‘won’. That was down to determination. It was part of my target and there was no way I wasn’t going to reach it. This year I doubt I will. It has been a last minute decision, and I mainly intend to use the focus to prep up some short stories. (I think that makes me a ‘nano rebel’ this year).
Nano is good for making you concentrate on getting the words down, and that’s how I plan to use it this time.
As to the second part of the question… Watch this space. I spent a month writing the first draft last November and have spent the rest of the year revising it. Mind you, I did a lot of pantsing, so there was a lot of restructuring required. Maybe next time I should plan more…
