Major revisions are out of the way for Fey Moon. Where do I go from here?


This Week:

I’m going to go over the first scene again, using feedback from the latest Secret Agent contest. Then I’ll polish my query, update my outline and synopsis.



Submit a batch of queries for FM before The Muse Online Writers Conference, where I’ll be pitching to a publisher.

With those edits out of the way, I can return to writing Trinity Coven. Don’t want to make a solid word count or chapter goal, as I will be attending the aforementioned conference.



NaNoWriMo! Honestly, with TC still in progress, and not “winning” last year, I was leaning towards not participating this year. What changed my mind? Scrivener. When I first heard about this writing software, I got super excited. I love lists and having everything organized. I have dozens of documents filled with characters, world info, drafts. All for one manuscript. I would love a way to keep all that managed. Bad news? It’s only been for Mac. Better news? In Jan/Feb 2011 it’s coming out for Windows! How do I justify to my husband that I must have this software?

Anyone who participates in NaNoWriMo this year and achieves their 50,000 words (and has them validated) will get a 50% discount coupon which they will be able to use when Scrivener for Windows is released next year. (source)

I think I had a writer-nerdgasm while watching the preview video. So. NaNoWriMo 2010. I’m in. Are you?


  1. Oh, oh, me me!


    I have a few friends that are doing it too. We should keep in touch, help keep each other on track for the coupon! Rawr!

  2. Awesome! We should totally be NaNo Buddies. :-)

    Now I just need a plot...

  3. I joined for the Scrivener discount. I've been wanting it for a while too.

  4. I'm Feywriter on the official site if anyone wants to Buddy me. :-)

  5. So cool about the Scrievner. Best luck with your pitch. I'm purplume at Nano too and I am in although I'll be out of the country until 11/3 and starting late.

  6. Thanks, purplume. I'll add you as a buddy for NaNoWriMo.
