Some of you may know that I’ve been slugging my way through the (hopefully) final revision of my Work In Progress (WIP). I’m hip deep in ripping-and-revising, but progress has been slow going (for lots of reasons). I knew if I stopped to dash off a new project for NaNoWriMo, I might never complete this WIP, and I wasn’t willing to take that risk. So, what to do? I needed a dose of serious inspiration. Then I realized…
When revising gets tough, the tough do NaNoRevMo!
I learned about the National Novel REVISING Month cavalcade from Young Adult Author, Elana Johnson’s recent blog post. My immediate reaction was, “Sign me up!”
I’m late to the NaNo starting gate so I’ll have to charge ahead to catch up. Especially considering how much work still needs to be done on this revision. It’s borderline insanity. But that’s ever stopped me before.
So, here it goes. From this day through the end of this month, my goal is to revise the following until they shine:
- Young Adult supernatural mystery WIP
- The query letter for this project
The Charge of the Write Brigade!
As I embark upon the Charge of the Write Brigade, my blog posts may be less frequent. But with so many folks participating in NaNoWriMo, I know everyone will understand. My motto for the rest of this month is going to be:
Sleep when you’re dead!
