What is NaNo WriMo?

I have had a few people ask me, “What is NaNo WriMo?” To be honest, I never really thought to write an explanation of it. I thought it was common knowledge, but it’s not! So, I’ll explain it.

NaNo WriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, and it occurs every November. During the month, writers will go on a writing frenzy, dedicated to writing a novel at least 50k words in length. If you finish by the end of the month, you win! This was my first year participating, so I wasn’t aware of a couple things I will take advantage of for NaNo WriMo 2018.

did finish my novel, Missing, which came out today. My original plan was to put out a new novel in the series every November, but due to my Beta readers’ outcry, I’ve decided to continue writing the series now instead. That does mean Fire of Southland will be put on the backburner. Because I was struggling a bit with it, I think it’s a good decision anyway. Perhaps things will come more smoothly when I start it up again. I will probably do that series after I finish Faith in Concordia.

Since I have Rose of Petrichoria books still coming out in February and May, let’s plan on having the untitled book two of Faith in Concordia out in August. K? K. Cheers!
