NaNoWriMo + November Goals

Sooooooo, after a lot of back and forth over whether or not I should do it, whether or not I would have time, whether it would help me along or stress me out…I have decided to do NaNoWriMo!

This is my first year to participate in NaNoWriMo. I did Camp back in July (and failed miserably), so I’m pretty much counting this towards my first.

I’ve been working on two novels for the past two months. The next book in my series The Homeschool Kids, and a dystopian novel (that I do not have a for sure title for). And wow have I been busy! I’ve written maybe a third of Will, and only 3,000 words of the dystopian. Yeah. It’s crazy.

So, my goal for NaNoWriMo is to put a dent in, if not (hopefully) finish, my dystopian novel. Why this month should be any different than the last two…I don’t know. But I am determined! It needs to get done. Needs to.

If you want to hear more about what I’m writing, you can find some more info and the synopsis for both stories here.

Here are a few of my goals and some upcoming events for the month of November.


  • Complete my dystopian novel (and win NaNoWriMo!!)
  • Complete Will
  • Finish Pride & Prejudice 
  • Finish A Time to Die


  • My first basketball game
  • Our annual heritage festival 
  • Thanksgiving 
  • Getting ready for Christmas & watching Christmas movies & decorating for Christmas & just Christmas!!!
  • Another interview on my blog

So, this was a short and sweet post that could technically count as a Writing Update. But there’s what I’m doing for NaNoWriMo! 

What are you writing for NaNoWriMo, and what else do you have going on this month? Happy writing! I hope everyone reaches their goals!!

  1. YAY NANO *throws confetti* I’m so happy you decided to do it! Even if you don’t make 50k, It’s a great motivation to try and squeeze more writing in 😀

    My month should be pretty uneventful, besides nano. It’s the first week in December that worries me. I have finals for some classes I’m taking and a CLEP History exam. I’ll just ignore those this month though 😛
