Why I will not be doing NaNoWriMo 2018

After some consideration, I’ve decided not to take part in NaNoWriMo 2018. Although I enjoy it – and the energy around it – greatly, there are just too many other projects waiting to be finished or get started for me to completely stop to write something else for a month.

The projects, or, I think my plate is overflowing

  • The projects I’m currently busy with, include:
  • Finishing and editing The Knowledge Stones
  • Editing Grove of Graves
  • Finalising the outline of and writing Porselein
  • A ghost story which will be about 7 000 words
  • The outline of a radio drama
  • “Not the Chosen Ones”, part 2
  • “Forgotten”, part 2

So, instead of having a slow and relaxing November, it will still be a very busy month (in which I may just write 50 000 words in any case…), especially taking into account that I have blog posts to write, a Christmas Market where I have a stall, making Christmas gifts and, you know, a day job!

Still, I’m not complaining, I just wish I could work faster!

Plans for October

That said, I’ve now managed to open up October a lot more, as I usually use October to prepare for NaNoWriMo. So, instead of doing that, I will spend all my time editing The Knowledge Stones to get that out by the end of November. That is the final deadline I’ve given myself!
