What Does the Fox Say?



Three days in and I’m enjoying NaNoWriMo & Entangled Smackdown over at SavvyAuthors, so far.

It feels good to finally get those scenes I’ve been running through my head onto the screen. I’m definitely continuing my non-linear approach to drafting but I’ll continue checking my outline to make sure I don’t go off on a tangent I can’t rescue myself from later. Plot holes can only be filled so much.


So, I read over my first day’s work, just because. I took note of what I already wanted to fix but didn’t want to edit anything because a) editing as you go is a no-no, at least for me because I find it to be counterproductive, and b) it will wreck the daily word counts and overall totals.

Still, it’s funny what you can come up with when you’re sprinting. I’ve read interesting POVs and quirky dialogue, but I’ve also read repetitive phrases in the narrative that are such rookie mistakes. They even occur within a couple of sentences of each other. Yeesh.


On Twitter, my Entangled Smackdown team for the Ignite Imprint is #Fire_Divas. It’s nice to meet new writers and have the ongoing encouragement throughout the month and beyond.


Now that I’m feeling slightly better, I think it’s time Bilbo Watson and I jammed once more. I wonder how What Does the Fox Say? sounds on the ukelele? 😉

  1. Oh! It sounds like you’re having fun in all the funnest ways! =)

    I am loving my NaNo. It’s my first time with an actual, complete plan.I always thought it would kill the spontaneity, but, instead, I have lots of room to be surprised, and also know which surprises will be the coolest for the story.

    I think the fox says, “Play the ukelele!”!

    • I’m all for being spontaneous, but I would really like to take more time pre-writing to create a more solid plan. I usually have a solid plan of intending to plan then life gets in the way, but I’m making do considering I achieved more prep time than in previous NaNos. 🙂
