In a Pickle

Oh hey there! So guess what month it is... OCTOBER! It's also NaBloWriMo, which translates to National Blog Writing Month! So I decided I'm going to write a blog post about writing and stuff everyday on this blog! Yay! I know I missed three days, but that's because... well, I have no excuse. But ta-da!

So next month is NaNoWriMo and I'm in a pickle. The book I want to write for NaNo is the first in a new middle grade series I have planned, and the word count will be less than 50,000 words. I know NaNo is more about writing a book and all, but I won't feel like a real winner unless I write a book with 50,000. And I don't want to write the second book in the series when I'm done, because I want to let the first book sit for a while so I can edit later, then submit to agents, etc, etc.

The NaNo book I wrote last year was basically a disaster and I hope to never write anything like it ever again because it was bad. Hopefully that taught me not to write as bad. The book was so stupid, and had so much unnecessary detail and was boring until the absolute end. So yeah, let's not do that again.

I have a few ideas could also write for NaNo, but I am just so excited to work on the new middle grade series. What do you think I should do... write the middle grade book even though it won't be 50,000 words, or write a different idea that definitely will reach the minimum word goal?

  2. I say do the middle grade one. If you finish it, you finish it, doesn't really matter if meet the exact word count, you still completed a book :) And who knows? Maybe something will happen and the middle grade one will sum up to about 50000 words! You never know!


Thank you for helping me reach my dreams!
