#NaNoWriMo, #ARCs, and #Thanksgiving

I’m taking next week off from blogging, so this will be my last post until after Thanksgiving.

NaNo – not going so well.  I blame inadequate preparation on my part.  Hitting 50K was never doable, but I wanted to at least get some words in every day.  As it stands, I’ve got just a tad over 9K – so that’s something.  I’ll have some time over the next week to devote to it, so hopefully that number increases substantially.  Couldn’t they have chosen another month for NaNo – preferably one without a holiday?

The good news is that even though it doesn’t release until February 13th, I already have ARCs of Subject A36.  Be looking for a giveaway the week after Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, and if you’re doing NaNo – wishing you all the words!

  1. The hard copy ARC’s look great!

    9000 is still 9000 just as any progress is still progress. I sort of failed at Nano this year. I finished my book, but it came up short, argh! So I’m doing edits of my last novel. This is not what i intended, so I won’t post a word count at/over 50,000. I am happy, though, that I’ve got the bones of a new novel, yay!

    Happy, happy Thanksgiving!

    1. Thanks, Priscilla! Having the bones of a new novel perfect to build on. Now you can work in all the things you need to expand on – character development, take care of plot holes. I’m always lacking in descriptions after a first draft, so instead of cutting words like most writers, I’m adding them. First drafts are always the hardest for me. Happy Thanksgiving!


  2. Happy Thanksgiving, Teri. Is that a new book coming out???? Excited over here!
    And 9k is 9k. Don’t sweat it. And I agree about November being way to busy to crank out books … how about February? Anyway, have a great break. See you in December. 🙂

    1. I could totally work with February, Diana. I may do my own kind of NaNo since I had some epiphanies about this next book over Thanksgiving. And yes – a new book will be released February 13th! I’ll be giving away an ARC in the next week – stay tuned!
