As most writers know, nanowrimo will soon be upon us this year, in 6 days in fact?! And as soon as one remembers this hardening fact, the heart and mind begins to flutter with gruesome anticipation! This will be my second attempt at nano, and hopefully my last in doing so without completion. But then the hows, and whys start to flood the brain, and you begin to really contemplate on truly making this nano DIFFERENT. I’m at that point in age, life, and understanding that leaves me to think that the time is now, the moment is right, and if not NOW, then never. It truly feels, all or nothing, and perhaps truly is!
I must, have to, and will send something out before the end of this year… well that was the thought anyway. I’m the type of writer and person who simply puts infinite effaces on the beginnings of things. Without the right start, well proper to my perceptions anyway, all else that follows is null and void, plan hearsay. I want to be PUBLISHED! Put the first is pivotal to my mental well being! With the 200%+ rise in published works in the market place since 2007, mostly in ebooks, it has become even more difficult to stand out amongst the crowd. So how then?! It must be a book that is not just well written, a splendid story, an enjoyable read, it must simultaneously be a work of… art, I’m thinking. And in that concept, something fresh, new and appealing in a completely artful way. And I think I have it! *SECRETS, SECRETS* But a new issue has arisen from this lovely 10 minute old insight. In order to have such control over my book thought, as I believe will be needed, my first project may need to be self published. And now this is where I stand. For nano this year I will be writing a fairy tale, that will be of 200,000+ words in it’s final length. I will self publish the book in a only special edition hardcover version, solely in independent books stores of the NYC area in 2013, and in an ebook form. No particulars I’d like to share now, but not only has nothing like what I plan ever been done, but the way I plane to market it will also be new! Wish me luck!!!
