The NaNoWriMo 20 Questions Tag!

I found this tag and wanted to take part so I’m doing did just that. It seems you’re supposed to be tagged for it, but I wasn’t, but the creator of this Sophie’s Corner. So she’s to be credited for my involvement despite not being tagged to do so.

The following are the questions she’s asking everyone to answer to give readers and other participatants a better idea of what you’ll be working on for the month of November.

I’m still new to blogging and the people I know taking part aren’t bloggers so I really don’t know how to tag them.


Give me a blurb!

Ely’s family has been indebted to an immortal for generations. Upon the death of his brother his niece, Temperance, comes to live with him. This places her within reach of a killer, the vampire Jacques Germain.

What’s the genre?

Horror, supernatural

Describe your MC in three words.

  • Ely – Broken, caring, and workaholic
  • Temperance – Beautiful, smart, curious

Without spoilers, describe your villain in three words.

  • Jacques – Sexy, dangerous, opportunist

What is your goal? (the traditional 50K? 20K? 5K? or……. 100K?)

A minimum of 50k

Is this your first draft? Second? Third?

First draft.

Are you starting a new project (or draft), or continuing an existing one?

Brand new project

What is your favourite time to write in the day?

Nighttime.

Where are you going to write?

Mostly in my office.

Computer or paper?

Computer and my notebook. I’m also using Scrivener to keep organized.

NaNoWriMo is a huge commitment!! How are you going to make time to write?

I’m dividing my time between other obligations and this event.

Are you going to participate in local or online NaNoWriMo events? (e.g. kick-off parties in your city, write-ins, virtual writing sprints…)

No. I am doing this tag. I’m also going to blog my progress weekly.

Do you write from beginning to end or skip around?

I tend to begin with the beginning working toward the end, but if I get stuck I’ll skip forward to progress on my goal and then work around until the draft is done.

Planner or pantser? (or plantser?)

This project is making me a planner. I’m usually a plantser by nature though.

What will be your go-to NaNoWriMo snack?

Not sure, probably whatever is in the pantry that’s quick.

Choice of caffeine? (or no caffeine?)

Coffee or honey infused tea.

Any rewards for milestone achievements? For finishing NaNoWriMo?

I usually reward myself when a job is completed.

Share a tip for other NaNo-ers!

All I can share is what has been shared with me.

  • Don’t give up.
  • Try your best to make your daily goals.
  • Don’t be too hard on yourself, so take breaks.

How are you feeling about NaNoWriMo? (Excited?! Nervous!? Terrified?!)

Excited!

Share an aesthetic for your NaNoWriMo novel!

  1. Hello!
    So glad that you decided to take on this tag! I enjoyed reading your answers! Ely sounds like a very awesome MC. Hope writing goes well.
    I also like to use Scrivener as well. Usually I handwrite scenes and then transcribe them onto Scrivener.
    Wishing you a wonderful preptober and NaNoWriMo!

    • Thank you! I’m hoping the story turns out well. If it does good enough, I’ll move forward with publication. I have used Scrivener on and off for years, for bigger projects the most, but hoping to get in the habit of utilizing it better. Even using it to organize other things beyond just stories. I started prepping really late, but I think I’m good to go. I hope all goes well in your neck of the internet. Thank you for stopping by my site and leaving a comment, means a lot.

  2. Awesome!! Totally stealing this for today’s post on my own blog! I am super excited to get started, and since I may have decided to scrap my huge outline for another project, this will help me organize my thoughts, too!
