I'm gonna be buuuuusy!!!

I've decided to torture myself yet again..
I love that I can be arm twisted into these things

I have signed up for BuNoWriMo in June..
(stolen from the Tart's blog)

So what IS BuNoWriMo? The Burrow Novel Writing Month.

When: The 30 days in June.

What: Write at least 50,000 words in the 30 days of June.

How: Very similar rules as NaNoWriMo... The traditional version means you can't start until June 1 and you write 'a whole book' (50,000 words worth anyway) in the month, but like NaNoWriMo, rebels are welcome... rebels would be people who continue on an already started WiP, people who write collections of shorts or non-fiction, people who want to set their OWN rules... It really just just a support system for a fast paced writing month.

What we DISCOURAGE is editing as you go. The point of writing fast is to let go of that inner editor so you can get the WORK done. Rewriting can come LATER.

If you are interested in joining us, just go here and join... that simple... then you will get the updates via facebook message (about weekly this month, maybe twice a week in June—we won't clog your inbox)

But for NOW: tie up those loose ends! Do whatever outlining or character sketching you like to accomplish pre-writing... get that brain going on your novel idea...

And resign yourself to the fact that when I am part of the planning committee, you will often hear you need to just get naked.

so.. I am going to be in the rebel category and try to finish my wip that I started last year..

Happy writing! I'll still be busy editing.

Wow, busy busy you! I actually wrote 50K under 8 days 2 years ago for NaNo... I know you can do it, Sugar! :)

Can Alex save Winter from the darkness that hunts her?

Go for it, Sugar. I'll be rooting for you all the way. Oh, and I'll try to stay out of your business for the month of June so you can work.

But, before then, if you have the time, be sure to check out my author blog at: http://ellison-james.blogspot.com

I've finished a paranormal novel involving a demon succubus wanting the impossible-love. I've also got a couple of short erotic pieces out and have promised myself ten short erotic stories along with a couple of free shorts with Azra, the succubus as the main character. I've been keeping busy lately too.

The best to you as you engage in this marathon writing adventure!
