NaNoWriMo is kicking my butt, as usual.
But one good thing has come out of it ...
The rough draft for Book 4 in the Montrose Paranormal Academy series is complete!
Staring at a blank screen and trying to fill it with beautiful words is always a struggle for me.
I much prefer the self-editing phase of writing a novel.
Writing the rough draft for Book 4 was particularly grueling for a few reasons:
A traditional NaNoWriMo challenge is all about writing 50,000 words of a rough draft in 30 days.
On that front, I've already kicked NaNoWriMo's butt!
Being the overachiever that I am, I went and customized NaNoWriMo to fit my current goals.
Book 4 is due to my editor on November 30th. That's only eleven days away!!
Maybe if I edit 3 chapters a day I can meet that deadline.
But I have a feeling I'll be asking for another extension.
I'll be sure to keep you, my favorite readers, posted!
In the meantime:
I'll be offering Montrose Paranormal Academy, Book 1: The Nexis Secret for FREE next week, 11/24 - 11/27.
Look for the special announcement post next Tuesday!
Barbara Hartzler is the debut author of The Nexis Secret—the story a girl with a gift to see the unseen world of angels. And the two secret societies vying for The Seer's allegiance. The Nexis Secret is inspired by Barbara’s college experiences and peppered with anecdotes from her teen missions trip to New York City. She’s always wanted to write, not necessarily about angels, but the idea was too good to pass up. As a former barista and graphic designer, she loves all things sparkly and purple and is always jonesing for a good cup of joe.
