November Writing Plans

The obvious fact is that November is on its way, which requires plans of action to be made for the tasks of writing throughout this next month.

For me, I don't think that NaNoWriMo would be able to find time to run its course for me this year. What I'm thinking about is still having November to be a month full of writing... it just won't have a 50k novel at the end. So...

Anyone remember last year? To re-introduce the idea: I invited anyone who wanted to join me, to each create our own personal goals of what writing we would like to get done through the month---so that we're not totally left in the dust of our NaNo-ing friends! Well, I'd like to do MyWriMo again for this year. I have some stories I've been thinking about for a while, and I sure would love to get them on paper! I was wondering if anyone else would like to do this with me? The more, the merrier! We could each have our own "MyWriMo". We'll all have different goals. Mine is to finish some stories, so that I'll have some completed projects from this year.

{If you have some ideas for stories (or something bigger like a novel)--maybe you already have something in the works that you'd like to finish up, this could be your motivation. You don't have to commit yourself to the entire month of November either--just take whatever time you'd like in November to do anything you need with your writing.}

If you are going to be posting (or have already posted) about your November writing plans, you might want to come link your posts in my monthly event Sharing Our Bookshelves, and you might find other people doing the same. New links can be added all month long.

To wrap up, if there is anyone up for MyWriMo 2011, I'd love to hear what you plan on doing yourself!

    Well, Tarissa, I might just be joining you again this year. It's a wee bit hard being left out in the cold by all the amazing NaNoers out there. :P

  2. NaNoWriMo sounds absolutely amazing, but, unfortunately, with the semester finishing up, I won't be able to come up with a 50K novel at the end. Still, I love the idea of setting some goals since I plan on doing a great amount of writing/editing work during December! What a wonderful warm-up (can you tell I love alliteration, LOL). Thanks for the inspiration, Tarissa! :)

    I do plan on working through Lara's Story, making a bigger dent in the first draft. I probably won't get as much done as I'd like to, what with studies and Christmas sewing and quilting, and teaching, but I'm sure going to try. ^.^

    Thank you for heading MyWriMo up again this year!

  4. I will like to join as well. I have a historical novel that I would like to finish before Christmas. But I don't know if I can accomplish that with school and being sick. But I shall try.

  5. I don't know whether or not I'm going to be doing much writing in November. I've been thinking about it and I even looked into the NaNoWriMo site and what it has to offer, but my schoolwork is my main focus right now. As I'm trudging my way through my second year of High-school I don't have much time for things other than schoolwork. Tis a sad thing, but something that must be dealt with. I am convinced that Geometry and Chemistry are going to be the death of me this year! I've been so occupied with that and my other activities that I haven't had time to devote to my writings. I would love to get back on them (actually I long to get back to them), but for right now, they will have to wait. I haven't even had time to read! I'm trying to start Pride and Prejudice, but I'm afraid I will have to put that down soon and continue with my schoolwork. Mom said I was going through a rough spot right now (and I believe her!), but that I should just keep going and do the best I can. So that's what I'm trying to do right. Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog, I really appreciated it!
