It’s September! Already? You betcha… This season I am warming up to NaNoWriMo 2020 with some monthly prep prompts. Follow along, and I would like to encourage you to do your own #WIPtember (September) & #writetober (October) which are hosted by Hannah Robinson on Instagram. I will also be hosting a #PREPtober (October) leading up to NaNo2020 on my FLXwrimos instagram.
Social isolation is still dictating most of our lives, but I’m feeling ready to tackle July Camp NaNo! I’m planning a non-fiction piece with a working title of Your Family Business.
Hello, pandemic…?! I attempted April Camp NaNo but ultimately abandoned my project due to personal stressors.
I really didn’t write much beyond social media posts. I am trying to decide how to incorporate my new vision into existing platforms.
In November, I participated in my 1st NaNoWriMo as a Municipal Liaison – and won…my first ever November event, after 14 years of attempts. My novel is tentatively named Remember. I took most of the winter off to reconsider my direction.
As of mid-August, I have begun the planning and research phase of a new fiction work, inspired by true events. There is no wordcount thus far.
In July, I wrote for Summer Camp NaNoWriMo, continuing my latest memoir. I met my goal, but decided that the project was taking a weird turn, so I have tabled it for now.
As of June, I was still writing the 1st draft of my Camp Nano project, working title: IDEK: Letters on Motherhood. I didn’t actually get as much written in April as I wanted, but May was much more productive. I was aiming for a completed rough draft by Summer Camp Nanowrimo in July but decided to expand the stories a bit.
In April, I participated in Camp Nanowrimo. My camp project is an expository collection of short stories based on life after Motherhood. It’s weird and ugly, and beautiful – and not enough people talk about it honestly.
In January, I gave birth to my third child – a daughter – and began the planning of my latest work.
