With NanoWriMo 2021 officially over, I can report that during the last 30 days I not only managed to edit one novel to its completion, but two. And then I started working on a third.
Because why not?
The two novels I edited took about a week and a half a piece, with dedicated writing times that ran past dinner and forced me to get creative with feeding the family. (One must never, ever besmirch their slow cooker.)
This success has led me to prepping for the infamous #PitMad that will happen on December 2nd. I will admit that this is my first real attempt at the Twitter party. I want to say I tried once before with Melody of Bones, but didn’t fully understand the rules. I only pitched it once that day and apparently you’re allowed 3 pitches per book during the allotted timeframe.
For those who are unaware of #PitMad, you can find all their information here.
I only recently learned of this neat little Twitter party last year or so, but I’m sure there are more people out there who hermit themselves away as much, if not more, than I do. If you’re one of them, I promise to report my findings for this party and you can decide for yourselves if you want to join in the next one.
To all who participated in NanoWrimo this year, I salute you. Win or lose, words got on the page. Maybe they’re bad words and you only keep 10% of what you wrote, but the page isn’t empty. Let’s work with that.
Oh, and just for the fun of it, here are the “placeholder covers” I used during Nano. (Yes, I’m still in a love affair with Canva. Eventually the novelty will fade.)
