Tell me about your NaNoWriMo project this year! Give me a blurb!
Princess Fabia has always wanted to go on a grand adventure. For her birthday, her father gives her just that. She is sent to deliver a sword a neighboring kingdom, but then she is shipwrecked and nothing goes as planned.

 What’s the genre?
Kingdom Adventure/Non-magical Fantasy

 Describe your MC in three words.
Confident. Feminine. Princess.

 Without spoilers, describe your villain in three words.
Nature. Bandits. Injury. 
(Yeah, I don't have a main villain planned at the moment)

 What is your goal? (the traditional 50K? 20K? 5K? or……. 100K?)
Ummm... 50K or until the story is done. 

 Is this your first draft? Second? Third?
Well, technically it's a second draft. I started this book a couple of years ago and got about 10,000 words in, but I made some major changes so this is a restart. However, I will be using some from the old draft. 

Are you starting a new project (or draft), or continuing an existing one?
 Yes...and yes... I am staring from chapter 1, but I will be bringing in some of the old draft.

What is your favorite time to write in the day?
Mid-morning to mid-afternoon

Where are you going to write?
At my table in my writing corner.

Computer or paper?
Computer all the way. I can type almost as fast as I can think so

NaNoWriMo is a huge commitment!! How are you going to make time to write?
Actually, since I plan not to have any other projects for that month, I feel like it's going to be really fun and a break. Besides! I'm so excited to be writing!

Are you going to participate in local or online NaNoWriMo events? (e.g. kick-off parties in your city, write-ins, virtual writing sprints…)
I might do some sprints, but I'm not sure.

Do you write from beginning to end or skip around?
Beginning to end. Always.

Planner or pantser? (or plantser?)
I'll probably have a little planned out, but my stories never go as planned. I'm pretty much a panster.  

What will be your go-to NaNoWriMo snack?
I'm not sure. I don't snack as much as I used to as I'm trying to eat healthier. Probably veggies dipped in ranch dressing. (For my friend that dislikes ranch dressing, I promise to have another option available)

Choice of caffeine? (or no caffeine?)
Tea and Dr Pepper. Mainly tea though because (as I said) I'm trying to eat healthier.

Any rewards for milestone achievements? For finishing NaNoWriMo?
If I finish the novel, I plan to buy myself a month of Kindle Unlimited for December and read a lot of Christmas books.

Share a tip for other NaNo-ers!
Write extra when you can and make sure to take off days when you need to or for holidays. Time off and planning for time off is an important part of completing NaNo

How are you feeling about NaNoWriMo? (Excited?! Nervous!? Terrified?!)
Excited! I've missed writing about Taelis.

Share a picture for your NaNoWriMo novel!
(Okay, this originally said "Share an aesthetic for your NaNoWriMo novel!" but the ramet misuse of the word aesthetic is driving me crazy. Those who I tag, please feel free to change it back)
I have stuff posted on my wall, ready to go!

I tag: 
And anyone else who would like to do it!

  1. I am not doing NaNo this year and never have done it before, for that matter, but I will be writing and working on a project I already have started (That is if I don't finish my first draft before the end of this month. In that case, I will probably switch to another first draft book I have waiting for me to come back to.)
    It is fun to see other writers and their projects they will be doing this next month though. It also gives me ideas and thoughts for how to start or prepare for writing a novel. I am rather new at this whole writing fiction thing and jumped into it quite on my own, so sometimes I am uncertain whether I am doing it write (pun intended) or not.

    1. Hannah,
      One of the things that I learned is that each author has their own method. That doesn't meant that some of us don't process things the same way, it just means that creating a story looks different for different authors. Doing things right means finding what works for you.
      If you need advice, please feel free to ask me questions. I'm passionate about building up fellow authors.

    2. Thanks, Sarah! That is encouraging and helpful! I may end up asking you some questions at some point! :)

  2. I loved your answers! Thanks very much for the tag! :D

  3. So glad I remembered to come back and read your tag. I really enjoyed learning about your project, it sound so fun.
