Kiwinowrimo, or the Kiwi Novel Writing Month starts on June 25th, info here. I am severely wishy washy about whether or not to enter.
You see, I really like the idea of sitting down and making myself write so much and the support and competition of the community is very good for spurring me on.
On the other hand I am over halfway through the manuscript for What’s the Worst that Could Happen? and I would feel weird putting it down.
On the other other hand I have put WtWtCH ‘down’ before to do the final draft of Kiki and picked it up again with no real difficulty.
I could use the Kiwinowrimo to write the sequel to Kiki which I have ideas for. I could spend some time planning the issues, themes and basic plot and then write like crazy for it.
But I feel like I will have the first draft of WtWtCH done in a couple of weeks if I can keep up my current momentum. (10 pages per sitting, even if I have to force myself.)
But if Kiki does get picked up by a publisher, they might want a sequel sooner rather than when I get around to it. And if I can get more published sooner then I can really try to make writing my life.
So…..what do you think? Can I get some input about what you think I should do? Kiwinowrimo, yes or no?
PoF: trackies are so warm and comfy
CO: writing is fun
ETA: I have filled up my latest notebook(which says ‘be of better cheer, everything will be fine’ on it with WtWtCH. It is full. Now I can move on to the ‘where did you get that beautiful bag?’ notebook I bought last Wednesday. Kick ass.
