Late summer and early fall have been busy, busy, busy. Things are starting to calm down, but when I’m not learning to play pickle ball—so much fun!—I’ve basically got my head down working on my current manuscript.
I’ve found the joy in my story again, and I pretty much don’t want to do anything else but work on it these days. Which is how I just today realized that National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) already started.
I’m not participating this year since I’m in the middle of a project and don’t want to stop (see previous paragraph), but I am trying to lay down as many words as possible before the end of the year.
How about you? Are you trying your hand at NaNo?
If so, here’s one of the many posts I’ve done on how Scrivener can help you hit your 1667 words/day: Winning NaNoWriMo with Scrivener.
And if you need help with anything else in Scrivener, you can find a list of all my blog posts on the subject at https://gwenhernandez.com/scrivener-tips/.
For the next few days I’ll be immersed in a virtual version of my favorite business conference for romance writers (Romance Author Mastermind), and I have a couple of appearances booked for the next few months.
Here’s what’s already on my schedule into the new year.
- Grand Rapids Regional Writers Group, 13 November (Scrivener webinar)
- Pikes Peak Writers Conference, Colorado Springs, CO, 28 April-1 May (two half-day Scrivener workshops, a one-hour Scrivener presentation, and a one-hour discussion on writing for pantsers)
Whether you’re working toward 50K words this month or not, I hope this message finds you well as we race toward the end of 2021.
