June is Just Around the Corner


Can you believe we are gearing up for yet another 50k challenge?
The call went out and the troops are responding. Yes, once again we have some fearless writers ready to put butts in seats and write or type their fingers to the bone. Oh, did I forget to mention that?

For now, you have a month, to plot or finish your current WIP ready to write or edit in June. I am going to work on two novels I started with Paula Roe’s ‘A Novel in 3 Months’ Blog. I am also editing a few finished WIPs.

While I know we are not suppose to edit what we write during the month, I am finding if I do as my wonderful CP, Heather Brown does, and edit the previous day’s work. My finished draft is a lot easier to edit at the end, and seeing, as I hate editing, I am willing to try anything to make it all easier. The big question for me will be ‘Can I write 50ks working this way?’ Only time will tell.

If you have never done a 50k in 30 Days challenge, you are in for a ride. It is important not to over extend yourself. If you do not think you can write the 50ks, aim for something lower, 25 or 30ks the object is to get you writing, find a comfortable writing routine (my sucks at the moment.

I am looking forward to seeing how you all go this year.

It's come by too soon! How does this happen? June is going to be very full on this year. I'm glad I'll (hopefully) have lowered my work hours so I can up my writing hours (& find time to organise my engagement party LOL).

Will I or won't I. Can I or...maybe not. Yikes. No idea if I'll be there-yet!

I've tried a few times (lost count,actually) to write 50ks in a month. I've gone in mostly blind and tried to wing it.

This time, I'm going for a different approach. I'm aiming to get to know my characters and the world they're in and create a detailed a road map. If I can get that done by the end of this month, I'll be in for the challenge in June.

Thanks Sandie.

I'm hoping I can get SOMETHING started. That would be an achievement for me.
