Published Books Do Happen with NaNoWriMo

Well it seems I have been blogging less to get ready for the Magic Month of November.  You know ‘National Novel Writing Month‘.  How do I prepare?  Pretty much by reading everything available for advice and direction.  Thinking about chapters, beginnings and endings and of course middles.  Its the middles that have me in awe and I am pretty curious as to how I will handle it.

There are those of you that are already wonderful writers – well I guess pretty much everyone in my FITFS group of heroes.  So I got to wondering if any of the NANOWRIMO creations have ever been published.  Guess what?  Lots have so I am including the link here and also listing them below.  Because guess what?

When I need encouragement.  When I need hope.  When I need to know success is possible.  Well – all I have to do is look here!

 

I have copied the list from the Office of Letters and Light as also found in the link above.

    Great list! Thanks for posting. I will reblog on my blog to encourage others. I had no outline when I started and really renjoyed letting the muse take me wherever. I had two dry spells, two days without a clue, and I took my characters to another room and discovered other people there. Spooky and so fun to just get that internal editor out of the way! Best of luck.

    That many? Maybe there’s hope for me yet, I’m not sure I’m up to the task, but I am cheering you on!

    Very cool, and inspiring, Chris! Good luck with your NaNoWriMo. I did it maybe three or four years ago. Had lots of fun, but wasn’t inspired to do any editing, so my creation is filed for now. I would recommend the process for anyone interested in finishing a book , though. (And, according to your savvy information–getting it published, too!)

      I am quite excited Kathy! My son and his wife are going to Montego Bay the first week of November and I am the chief bottle washer. A little nervous about energy requirements so will have to be extra creative!

    But how did they do it. Did they go back clean it up make it better rewrite it then search for years for an agent who then searched for years for a publisher? You know what is hardest about this Nano thingy … Not being able to start yet! I am absolutely gagging to get onto it. Too many ideas and not enough pencils – i want to start to write! so glad you are doing it too! c

      Yes C I think the idea is to get the story down then go back in December to edit. With your talent I can’t imagine there will be much editing and like you I am champing at the bit to get started. One of the links said to do an outline of each chapter before hand so I laid out 34 potential chapter guidelines. Yikes it is exciting!

    WoW! I didn’t know there were “that” many from Nano! I also heard “The Help” was a Nano Novel. If that was on the list…sorry I’m reading quickly on a break at work. :) Are you getting excited!
