July Novel Writing Month Anyone?

Revision on the current book is almost finished. Does that mean it’s time to rest and take a vacation?

Not for a writer!

I’m addicted to writing. I admit it. Life doesn’t feel complete without plotting, planning, writing and revising all the stories coming out of my head. Even if no one ever read them, I would still write.

Hey, there are a lot worse addictions to have!

I’m also prolific. When I’m on a roll I can write 10,000+ words on a single full day. The highest word count in a single day has been 18,000 (I’m not aiming for that last number ever again. I suffered for it for days after.).

So, it follows that I have a great deal of fun in November for National Novel Writing Month. Apparently so do a lot of other people…

Because other events have sprung up all over the place. July is one of them. “July Novel Writing Month” was inspired by November’s NaNoWriMo. The premise is similar: 50,000 words in 31 days (1613 words a day). Where the November and July event differ is that JulNoWriMo invites those with previously started projects to join in. The idea is to get 50,000 words total.

And yes, despite life being rather crazy, I’m joining in for the second time. You can find me over at the JulNoWriMo website under the user name “Dreamerscove.”

This works out well with “The E-Book Experiment” premise. I need product, as in plural. Time to create more.

Now to get a few outlines in place…

Hope to see you there!

  1. I have been seriously considering doing this. I’ve completed nanowrimo twice but November is such a stressful time with holidays and family events and stuff. July is just about empty of obligations. I can also get on the laptop outside in the yard and write while my kid plays.

    • Plus it has one extra day! Instead of needing 1667 words per day in November, you only need 1613 words per day. Okay, so that isn’t that big of a difference. It’s more the psychological idea of one more day! 😛

      And congrats on finishing NaNoWriMo twice!
