NaNoWriMo Take Two

On November 1, what else can a writer blog about but NaNoWriMo? And yes, I'm going for it again this year. I will confess though, I'm cheating. I plan to finish a WIP rather than start a new manuscript. I already have over 25,000 words down on my YA, but I'm tossing out two plot threads, so I figure that brings me down to somewhere between 15,000-20,000. I'm aiming for a 60,000-word first draft, so who knows? I may hit that magic 50,000 word mark after all.

I've got around 40 buddies so far, but if any of you readers are taking the NaNo challenge, buddy me -- we're all in this together! I'm Judy P at NaNo.

Now, let's get started!


  1. Are we still buddies if we were buddies last year? :)

    I'm in - working on a WIP too.

  2. Bish -- are you Bish Denham at Nano?

    Thanks, MG and MW!

    Robin -- we're still buddies. We'll always be buddies!

  3. Best of luck to J.A., Bish, Robin and everyone else participating! What a huge challenge!

  4. If you can spare the time, I'd love a weekly progress report. G'luck!
