With November just around the corner, I’m here to make My NaNoWriMo Announcement! Before you get all excited that I have some kind of secret surprise, I don’t. I’m simply announcing that I’m going to be participating in NaNoWriMo again this year.
I think that part of what made my NaNoWriMo a success last year was accountability. By announcing my goal here – on the internet where everyone can see! – I’m making myself accountable to all of you. I’m making a commitment that I’m going to write 50,000 words of a novel this November, and by inviting you to be part of the process, I know that I’m not alone in my journey.
This year, I’m going to be drafting a new YA Romance that I’m calling Lena and the Crashing Wave Otherwise Known as Dougie. Long title, I know, but it feels right for now. I’ve been planning and plotting for a couple of weeks, and I am so excited to actually start writing. If you’re interested in learning more about the story and the inspiration behind it, click here! You can get all kinds of info over on my author site. And if you want updates on my progress, be sure to sign up for my author newsletter From the Desk of Haley M. Pettit.
Are you participating in NaNoWriMo this November? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to support each other and hear what your story is about!
