I've returned from my wonderful vacation to San Diego/Disneyland/NYC with my mind refreshed and ready to tackle my writing/editing. I don't think I can put in the effort that I would like to see in NaNoWriMo, but decided to take a smaller challenge. Over at Inkygirl, she came up with the idea that can be used anytime of the year where you can chose to write 250, 500, or 1000 words a day. The rules are pretty much up to the writer, but helps with motivation to have goals. Be sure to check out the challenge page with the "rules" and different word trackers.
Before I left on our adventures, I finished up doing the small editing in my manuscript. I have an idea of things that I want to change during the revision. There were a few ideas that I need to strengthen that finally came together. I also finally drew out a map of my character's world in Rockefeller Center in NYC while we waiting for the rain to stop. I have a notebook that I doodle notes, sketches, and tape in pictures that I took with me everywhere. I can't wait to page through it to rediscover the directions this novel needs to undertake.
Anyone else doing or have done NaNoWriMo or other challenges?
