In the last few days I have been busy with revising an old manuscript, completing another draft of my current one, reading lots of books, as well as finding my way around Twitter. Amidst all these hectic activities I was unable to plot and outline my new story with which I wanted to join NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month).
I had a feeling that if I had a decent outline I may have been able to complete the first draft (that is write 50,000 words) in the 30 days of November.
Unfortunately, my previous manuscript, research for the current one, Diwali celebrations and my joining Twitter waylaid my best laid plans. I consoled myself that I would take the NaNo plunge next year. That for the last two months of the year I would work on Scavage (remember my book on street dogs) and get it ready, complete with a query letter and a synopsis and start querying for it after a couple of months.
On my regular morning walks I suddenly remembered that I had another manuscript in my laptop. Hope you all remember the trilogy that I had mentioned. I have written quite a few scenes, even the ending, before I abandoned it last year.
Well, throughout November I will be working on Scavage, getting it into a kickass shape (hopefully, my fear of dogs has not affected my writing) and seeing where the first book of the Sorequil Trilogy is heading. I hope to get a lot of writing done in November.
As for Twitter, I am quite enjoying it. I completed one and a half months of Tweeting.
What about you all? What are your November plans? Anything special you are working on next month?
