For most people what comes next after nano is revision, revision, revision. That may include many things. For my friend in Washington state it might mean determining where one book ends and the next begins for she has been working on three in her series; all of them started during nano.
She also has to see where all the chapters will fit. I think she did better this year, although in the past she has lost oodles of information when she was in the middle of revision when her computer was acting up.
For me, I haven’t worked on revising either of the novels I worked on during nano, although I hope to do so sometime in the future. This year, I have nothing to revise since I took a conglomeration of words for my total count. Granted they were all words put together into sentences for a purpose at the time, usually as I was chatting to one group or another, along with my posts in my many blogs and other things I wrote.
Some of the people that are members of the writing web site are joining a blogging challenge to keep up their desire to write something daily. I did consider joining that myself, but recently decided that wouldn’t be the best for my life right now.
Before I continue with some of what I want to share in this post, I will say that I only intended for this blog to be written during the current nano and maybe save further posts for the nano’s in the years to come. Even if I choose to work on another novel, I could post a little bit here just to keep everyone informed.
So, when this years nano is over I don’t plan on posting anything new here until next years nano begins. If you wonder what I’m up to please feel free to check out any of my other blogs which are all listed on November 15th’s post. That is titled my other word press blogs. I had two posts dated that day, this was the first of the two.
After nano, and then later on this winter when I have more of my bookkeeping caught up, I hope to visit more of your blogs and strike up a conversation.
I decided rather than me worrying about posting every day elsewhere for December, that I need to get going on the bookkeeping for my business as I am behind. I think everything is done until around June or July-my daughter helped me get that far, but nothing much has been done since then.
I still want to write post on most of my blogs, but I won’t have to think about writing 1666 words per day and that should be refreshing. My goal will be to post in each of my blogs at least once ever other week for starters and then once I get caught up at home, maybe I will be able to have time and find things to talk about even more often than that.
I know some of the things I want to discuss will take some researching, whereas other posts will be off the cuff. The ones that I need to research will of course take away precious time and mean I won’t be writing that much then, but when the research is done hopefully I’ll be able to put together a decent post that I may be able to use in a different way later. Or I may decided to save it as an article and put just a small section here to whet your appetite for more.
This post has 606 words and any writing I do after work will not be added to this count as I’m putting it on the official site now.
