National Novel Writing Month 2022

It’s almost that time of year again and I don’t think I’m ready for it.

To be honest, I don’t remember the last time I participated in NaNoWriMo but I do want to participate this year. I think I’ve gotten better at time management. Saying that, I’m not sure what I’m writing just yet. There’s been a few ideas bouncing around in my head lately, but I also have two projects that I’m currently working on. Adding a third project into the mix might be a little too much for me.

The goal is to write 50,000 words in thirty days. Technically, it doesn’t have to be towards one projects specifically so maybe I can distribute those 50k words between projects? It’s definitely taking liberty with the spirit of things but it would definitely make me write more than I already do.

We have 8 more days until the event starts. Who knows? Maybe I’ll end up finish a one project before the start of November.

Social Media

As part of Wattpad’s Creators Program, I made an account on Instagram to help build an audience. I’ve managed to post some content but in reality social media is tough. Once I’ve gotten a bit more comfortable with the platform, I might do more with it. For now, I’m experimenting with the kind of content I want to post.

I know it’s important to have social media as an author and I need to be better about it. To be honest, I might need to dedicate time out of my schedule to post something about my progress. While blog posts help, I’m not too consistent with it, but I’m trying to do better now.

Let’s Keep on Chugging

Me

All that’s left for me to do is keep on chugging. I’ll somehow manage to figure it out. Most importantly, I can’t lose track of my goal for this year: send out query letters before Christmas break. While I don’t have much time left, I believe I can do it.
