My NaNoWriMo novel of 2015--more on what that means in post

Been way too long since I have done a post here. I keep thinking about it but never get to it. Yikes.

Anyway, just wanted to say to you all that I am doing Nanowrimo this year. National Novel Writing Month. They have done this every November for many years. They want everyone to do a novel 50,000 words-which is really very short for a novel. Any type, including personal. Do it down and dirty during the month. Clean up of grammar and phrasing can be done the next month. Some of the novels have been published and pro writers with many published books take part.

Kinda of late if any of you want to do it for you need to sign in by Saturday-Oct 31st-Midnight. But I decided to do it again, I have done five books through this. Last years is the next adventure of NA hero of my "Above My Pay GradeX2" an Indie published book available in E-book and paper version-great adventure, action, suspense and fun for the reader if I say so my self plus three other people.

Anyway I will be doing a steampunk adventure tale about a courier in our time yet steampunk tech world. She is young,  untried even though she has done this for a year or so. There will be adventure, chases of various types, action, hopefully suspense and humor.

It will be fun and work and my time here and writing other stuff will be lowered. I will still work on my serial here on G+  check out #journeyofmystery   and I want to get one certain story ready to send to Beneath Ceaseless Skies. I am half way done with that. Maybe finish it tomorrow but I also want to work on that serial. If I work long enough I might finish the writing part. I am placing revised sections on the serial each week and I am behind with that.  Which means even when I finish the story I will have at least another month of Saturdays to post before I finish the tale on G+.

Anyway I am a seat of the pants guy so I don't know much about what will happen in my NaNo novel this year. I have in mind two or three scenes but I will have to figure out where they go. This means I don't do outlines and plotting papers as some writers do. It would be helpful if I wrote down the names of the characters-I know of-before I start but that's about it for my planning.

Oh yes I had hoped to have last years Nano novel ready to Indie publish next month but it ain't going to happen. If I take a week off for Thanksgiving maybe the next month Jan '16. If I don't it could be another three months after that. 

Two of my pervious novels are still waiting revising and lengthen. I worked on one for a chapter or two and that's it for both. A project for next year.
