NaNoWriMo 2016: I'm Back!

After a five year absence, I've decided to give the National Novel Writing Month challenge another try. This year, my novel project is Elvenking, the third book in the Dragonfriend series.

As many of you know, the NaNo challenge is to write a complete 50k word novel during the month of November. I fudge just a little on that (Hey, it's allowed!) by saying I'll be writing the first fifty thousand words of my novel, but not necessarily completing it.

I've finished four NaNo novels to date and self-published two of those four (I'm querying a third).

The NaNo "word count/percentage completed" widget is now residing in the column to the right. Starting at midnight on Nov. 1st, you'll be able to keep track of my daily progress. Feel free to praise or mock me, depending on how I'm doing.

If you're looking for a writing buddy, I'm sillyroger over on the NaNo site. There's no obligation to being a "buddy," but I do find it motivating to see how my friends are doing throughout the month.

Are you taking the NaNo challenge? If so, good for you. It's a little scary, but very satisfying. Try it!

p.s. The cheesy cover for Elevenking is just something I mocked up to motivate me. The finished product will look much better!

UPDATE: As of Saturday, 11/12, I'm at 26409. That's just over halfway there!
