I haven’t been writing any novels for the past month. As I have explained before, I write during NaNoWriMo months: April, July, and November. They are intense months, but I spend a lot of the rest of the year editing what I have written during past events.
One thing I did this year was commit myself to publishing 1 book a year. That means, these three months of intense writing may mean I work on revisions of old projects. It also means, since there are already so many books in the pipeline, I can try other things.
I am beginning to plan what I work on during the three events this year. I am spending the next few months editing and submitting PAP for publication. I have novel #3 ready for a re-write. I have Harry Potter fan fiction I have always wanted to flesh out and write. I have novel #4 that could be ready for editing and fleshing out a few elements. It may involve illustrations… it may be awesome.
Actually, these are all things that I plan on working on over the next year’s two months of Camp NaNoWriMo. I am going to write most of my Harry Potter fan fiction in April. I am going to pick up some elements of novel #3, but that is a project that will be more of a focus for July’s Camp NaNoWriMo. By then, hopefully, PAP will be under contract with someone and I will need novel #3 to get me through the long wait.
What about November? I am not sure about that yet, but I have nearly a year to think about that. In the mean time, get ready, Harry Potter fans, for my take on Cedric related fan fiction. That’s the main project coming up for Camp NaNoWriMo in April.
