There’s an awesome giveaway at the end of this post with two prize packs perfect for writers, so make sure you scroll to the bottom after you read about my current WIP story dilemma.
Plotting in Progress…
I’m getting pumped up for JuNoWriMo. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a novel writing challenge to pen 50,000 words in June. Warning: participating in JuNoWriMo may result in a finished first draft of your book! Only the brave should join.
I am knee-deep into prewriting, but I’ve come across a slight dilemma. I’m plotting out a book that comes after the book I should write in June. Sigh. I’m apparently just not good at doing things the “right way.” What a rebel I am.
I should be plotting Flawed #4, but instead my writer brain jumped ahead to the sequel to Convergence (which is, for all intents and purposes, Flawed #1.5). Yeah, I know that’s confusing, but Convergence isn’t technically a part of the Flawed series… it’s actually the beginning of another, related series with characters that overlap. It’s more urban fantasy and less thriller. I really should figure out a better way to brand these, but I’m still working on that.
If things go well this month, maybe I can prewrite both books and have two outlines ready to go – one for June and one for NaNoWriMo in November. Wish me luck!

You can copy and paste this post, create your own, or do a combo of the two. If you choose to write your own, have fun with it! Share a little bit about what you will be working on this June, talk about your favorite part of JuNoWriMo, share your favorite recipe for a late night snack on those nights when you need to stay up and write all the words, the sky is the limit. The only must is please include a link to the JuNoWriMo website.
2. Join the linky list.
Once your post is live, join the linky list below. That way everyone else participating can visit and help promote your post.
Visit a few of the other participant’s blogs. It’s a great way to meet some of the other writers before the event.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with JuNoWriMo, it’s a month long writing adventure in the style of NaNoWriMo, complete with word sprints and plenty of other writers to cheer you on. The goal is to write 50,000 in one month (1,667 words a day). You can write whatever you want. Fiction, non-fiction, the final 50k to something you started five years ago. Anything. We’d love to have you write with us!
