It is currently 9:30pm on Oct 31, 2017. In no time at all, I will be starting the chaos of November. But I am crazy, and I don’t plan on doing a simple NaNo month. I want to try and to do a double NaNo. That means 100k words. In a month.
Why do I do this to myself? Am I truly crazy? Don’t answer that.
I am writing eight children stories. First up are the five early chapter books that I am writing with my daughter. It is about Evana Sweetland. A seven-year-old who must collect scattered gems around the area. Why would a seven-year-old do this? I don’t know. It is a kids book.
Luckily each book is only 5k words each. I don’t know if that will make it easier or not, but here’s to hope.
After I am done those five books, the plan is to write the remaining 3 middle-grade books that I am writing with my son. The story is about Des O’Neal. A thirteen-year-old boy who must save the space station colony from saboteurs. The station orbits Jupiter. That is 25k words each.
Now I know what you are thinking. Writing that many words each day with kids dictating it? No, It is not being written that way. The plan is for me to put it in prose, but the kids and I have put together outlines for me to work off of.
That’s the plan. 100k words in 30 days. That is 3333 words a day. As I have said before, “If your dreams don’t scare you, they’re not big enough.”
So I may not be posting as much as I have been in the last week or so, but I will not get to the point where I was in the six months before. I will post about once a week, maybe little updates on how I am progressing. We will see what it brings.
Until next time.
