NaNoWriMo Update

NaNoWriMo starts in 2 days…I’m really getting nervous and excited!

I’ve hooked up with a very nice group of fellow “Rhinos” (Dallas/Ft. Worth area NaNo participants) for some “prep-ins”.  I’m hoping to visit them again for some “write-ins” over the next month.

I also attended the kick-off party in Ft. Worth this past weekend and met some more wonderful fellow participants.  We played a pretty fun genre-writing game together and I got some swag (score!).

I’ve finally got a basic plot and an outline of my main characters.  I also put together a sample book cover for my upcoming bestselling novel.  I’ve also purchased a new notebook computer (squee!) and downloaded yWriter software to help me organize things.

Now…I’m visiting family out-of-town for the first week of the event.  Still, I should have time to get my word count quotas in while my wife, sister-in-law, and brother-in-law play WoW.

I’ll keep you posted on my progress…

About Shedrick

I am a professional librarian and a part-time writer that's working to do that the other way around. I currently live in North Texas in the lovely city of Denton (“The Home of Happiness“) with my lovely wife and the obligatory demon-spawn cats. When not writing, gaming, or watching cheezy kung-fu flicks, I can sometimes be found in a pub (or the American equivalent) enjoying a fine brew.

    I was in the fantasy group (grime-fighting unicorn and fairy duo takes on vampire-goblins with fixation on being glittery like Edward Cullen…). I was the confused-looking guy with a cowboy hat. Lots of fun had by all!
