One Book. One Month.

I’m doing it. I’m really actually doing it. For reals this time.

In the month of April, I’m writing an entire book in one month. While the huge 50,000-word goal of NaNoWriMo may be a bit out of my range, I plan on having something complete and whole and ready to be edited and re-written by May 1st.

I’m working mostly with the Book In a Month system (BIAM), but modified as I rarely write in order and BIAM is scheduled to work linearly. There are plans for many encouragement cookies, sessions with a six-pack, and sticker bribery in order to encourage me to work through the numerous writers’ blocks and work stresses that will inevitably come my way.

What’s the book, you may ask?

I’m working on a Middle Grade novel with some minor alternative history twists about a reality competition show where tweenage girls from around the world compete to be the next princess of a forgotten microstate in Europe. It’s fun, light, and a bit of a break from the fantastic dramas of Faehunter.

All of my blog posts in the month of April will be about my progress, pitfalls, triumphs, and successes and will likely be posted every Thursday. I’m counting on your support and encouragement over the next 30 days!

Wish me luck!
