This year, I am going back to my novel draft during NaNoWriMo rather than focusing on counting my words. When I say novel I am likely not using the right term, but I don’t know what the final form will be. I am using November as a starting point for something bigger.
I’m going to “relive” and rewrite the first two stories/novellas by the end of the year and develop the third one in January. I thought about working on the third first but I feel like getting the first two out of me is more urgent, with a higher understanding of the characters and better craft than when I first wrote them. Parts of them are in hard-cover books, parts on a usb stick. So first I need to get the puzzle pieces in some sort of format.
I plan to revise the whole thing as a unit in February. At least this is my current goal. Ambitious? Yes. But I’ve been postponing this for so long that I feel I need some deadlines. One chunk per month is something tangible. What is your NaNoWriMo goal this year?
