NaNoWriMo Updates

Posted 8 November 2016 by Kim in NaNoWriMo / 0 Comments


So just over a week into NaNoWriMo and I can say that it’s going pretty well.  I’m about a week ahead of schedule, which gives me a nice cushion in a month with Thanksgiving in it.  I’ve never been one of those writers who is capable of cranking out five or six thousand words in a day.  My life just doesn’t allow for that on regular basis.  But I’ve had a decent string of what are for me good word counts.  I’ve consistently had a daily word count over the target of 1,667 words, so I’m happy about it.

And I’m loving the story.  I have a cover posted with it on my NaNoWriMo page, but it is just a filler cover.  The true cover is one I bought a while ago from Lonnie Rae Hebert of Cover Crush Designs.  I bought it without a story in mind because I fell in love with it the moment I saw it.  So that cover is the inspiration for The Masquerade.  It’s going to be a young adult novel that explores the reality that utopias never really are.  No idea when I’m actually going to publish it, since I still have to finish it and send it to an editor.  And then rewrites.  So much fun!
