Fourth time is the charm for NaNoWriMo?



NaNoWriMo 2008


I've decided to try doing NaNoWriMo again, even though last year's effort was dismally inadequate.

I have many more plot bunnies than I had this time last year, plus they've had time to simmer in the back burner of my brain for quite a few months, so I'm hoping I'll do better than last year. (It would be hard to do worse!)

As I've done for the past two NaNoWriMos, I'll be writing Potterverse fics, a series of short stories, some of which will be connected to one another or to previously posted tales. At this point, it looks like most will star Fenrir Greyback, with several being Malfoy-family-centered. Some won't be though, since I want to add more to the "Contingencies" plot that I started during the 2006 NaNoWriMo and also the Snirius AU "Chewtoy" that has proved to be surprisingly popular among those who read me. I've been suffering the slow death of plot bunnies nibbling at me constantly for the past few months, while real-life swirled around me and made it difficult to concentrate long enough to write anything. This way at least I'll have a chance to clear out some of these untold tales that have been niggling at me for so many months.

I have no clue as to whether or not I'll hit the 50,000 word mark by the target date of November 30th, but at least I'll feel better with less of a backlog to deal with.

For those who wish to follow my progress, my author page is here.
