JanNoWriMo

Okay. I'm starting a movement. Right here. And I'm hoping that everyone who joins can check in on this thread throughout the month.

This year I totally bombed NaNoWriMo. I also had an epic fail on CampNaNoWriMo in 2011. And I have this one manuscript that I started for CampNaNo in June that I abanded for a new project that I wrote in August. Point being: Unfinished NaNo drafts -- I has them.

AND SO DO YOU.

JanNoWriMo is a month-long challenge to finish that draft you NaNoFailed. Whether you reached 50k and stopped but still had more plot, or if you only got 15k in, or if you merely outlined and then got distracted by a shiny thing...this movement is for you.

If you want to join, but are some kind of superwinner, use the month to revise your manuscript. Print it out. Mark it up. Input changes! Maybe even find someone to exchange critique with in Feburary. Let's do this.

So, who's in?

Ten days left, kids. How's the awesome in here? It doesn't look quite like it's over-flowing, yet.

I hope you guys are rocking it.

Oh, lord. I'm so behind. I got to this point where I realized the only way to do this is to cut a POV character and rewrite all her chapters from a different POV...so I could finish a draft by the end of the month, but the last third of the book would be so different from the start it would be more like draft 0.5 than draft 1. SIGH. Thanks ^neurotype for pointing this out. At least I'm further ahead than I was!

Yes, I have been in similar circumstances. Fortunately I only ended up with small rewrites needed. You have my sympathies on that task.

I've really stuck to my schedule... Chapter 20 will be finished by next weekend. Unfortunately, I don't think the plot is going to wrap up nicely at that point, so I'm going to have to add another chapter or two. But that's okay, I guess. At least the end is in sight! Once I get to editing, I'll probably be back to 20 chapters I originally anticipated.
