The Beginning of the End

NaNoWriMo is coming to an end as I write my last SMP Author Blog post of 2019. But this year, I didn’t participate. Instead, I continued with my Happy 100s Facebook Group, and to date, I’ve logged 20,653 words on my work in progress since November 1! It’s also my first contemporary romance/women’s fiction novel. I hope to have the first draft done by mid winter 2020!

I find this laid back group, with minimal internal communications and no pressure other than to write 100 words per day, has enabled me do more than any year I did particpate in NaNo. Most often, I’ve been able to write more because once I get going, the creative instinct kicks in. We’re also able to count editing (at a reduced word count) in our totals, which is great since re reading what I wrote last helps me get into the mood to go further.

I have also found that I needed to limit my participation in other online writing groups because the distraction increases my procrastination and eats up the limited time I have to write due to work, family, and other commitments. So I apologize if I haven’t been active, but rest assured I am very well.

If you’re read my past blogs, you know I’ve been battling writer’s block for more than a year so the fact that my creative instincts have returned is a huge victory, no matter what the word count. And I’ve even got a start on my next project, which will be the fourth book in the Unfinished Business series.

So I wish you all happy writing and reading in the new year and look forward to sharing more good news!

    I didn’t formally participate in anything, but I did promise myself I’d write every day–which I did. I work full-time and have a husband. I have to budget my time, and if I set a number of words, I then beat myself up. If I just say I’ll write every day, I hold to my goal.
