Well, November is NANOWRIMO (National Novel Writing Month) and it starts 11/1 (today for me right now).
I am going to try and participate and taking my story I am writing for Sue Vincent’s prompts and add a beginning and move forward to meet what I have done for her so far. The back story is my plan. I am not happy about the goal because it is 50,000 words for the month and I have to be more ruthless and write every day and I am not great with rules that control my writing.
That’s the plan right now anyhow.

Highlighted chapters are done and ready to be read.
I recently mentioned to an editor that I didn’t expect to enter this year. I was simply not in the mood to write stories. Although I am writing daily Haiku’s.
To my surprise she said she saw no reason why I couldn’t write a book of Haiku’s. So I have thought about it and maybe I will take my Haiku’s and put them together as a possible book. 50,000 words in that form would be harder to accomplish, but even if I didn’t hit the goal, I would have a good size manuscript of poems. I also write Shadormas and a few other types.
I don’t really know how to set something like that up, but November is just to get a rough copy any how so maybe it doesn’t matter for now and I will spend time after it is over perfecting it. Poetry books are fairly popular.
