NaNoWriMo 2012

It’s November 1, 2012, and that means National Novel Writing Month has started. I’ve been writing a novel in November every year since 2003, but I’ve only ever “won” NaNo once. That also happened the the only year I had an outline. Imagine that.

This year I’m going for it again, and I’m writing an erotic novel in the tones of Fifty Shades of Grey. For the record, I don’t like Fifty Shades of Grey. I think Ana is a doormat and Christian is a stalker.

So that prompted me to write this one, because the premise of 50 lends itself to something more: a woman is intrigued and scared of a powerful man, and has to decide if she’s going to pursue a relationship with him. It could have been a lot more than the inner goddess and the control freak.

Want to see how this progresses through November? Here’s my profile on NanoWriMo.

  1. Good luck! I did NaNo in, I think, 2006 and finished it. I tried the next year and gave up. (Basically I’m a lousy fiction writer) There was not the NaNo web site like you linked to when I did it. that might have kept me going.

  2. The website is much nicer now, and there’s a lot more time wasters on it. I’m finding it hard to focus this year, I’m so not used to writing.

  3. I’ve always wanted to participate in NaNoWriMo, but I haven’t had the time. I plan to participate next year because I love writing and I have a lot of ideas! It’s awesome that you won once!

  5. I’ve never heard of NaNo before, but I think it’s amazing your writing a novel, you have to be very disciplined. šŸ™‚
