Is this your first year doing NaNoWriMo?
No. This is the second year. The first time, I ended up with 4500 words. During Camp NaNo, in May, I got 25000. Finally, in August, I made it with 50074.
What is the best tip you can give to a first-time NaNo'er?
Write! It doesn't matter what the quality is. You can edit later.
How much preparation do you plan to do before November 1st?
In the past, I have just written by the seat of my pants. In August, I had a super rough outline. This November, I'll have at least the rough outline if not a detailed outline.
Got anything you'd like to tell us about this years project?
It's the prequel to a book I've already written. I feel this will be instrumental in trying to iron out the kinks in my "finished" novel.
Anything else you'd like to share?
Love all the support I get from my family and friends.
I'm a mostly SAHM to 5 kids. We have a small farm and try to have lots of fun all the time. Hope to see you on the NaNo site! My Blog: cropsofmemories.blogspot.com
