Is anyone taking part in National Novel Writing Month this year?  Maybe you even have a book with a permaculture theme?  

I'm not a fiction writer, but November is a very good month to write.  We could have our own International Permaculture Writers Month.  InPerWrMo?  

Anyone interested?

I'm doing NaNo this year.

Don't know what I'll be writing yet. I'll probably decide on November 1st. :)

Thought I'd post a quick update.

1. I am indeed doing NaNo.

2. I ended up working on an unfinished humor novel. Don't know enough to write anything worth reading about permaculture yet, I'm still a baby at this.

3. No chance of hitting the 50K but that's okay. As long as I get closer to finally finishing this story, I'm good.


Anyone else writing this month?

I'm up to my armpits editing and working on the rewards for my kickstarter.

But I'm also gathering materials together for the next book. I'm fleshing out the outline and also trying to decide what I can cut from the book.  It's all about balance - if I write too much then the book will be more expensive to print.  Write too little, and the book won't be useful.  Trying to find a ballance between my rants and nitty-gritty how-to guides.

Your book is going to be awesome! Yes it's a lot of work, but there's nothing quite like the feeling you get when you hold your book in your hands--especially the first one. Totally worth it in the end.

 
They gave me pumpkin ice cream. It was not pumpkin pie ice cream. Wiping my tongue on this tiny ad:
