NaNoWriMo Eve: Are You Ready?

November is National Novel Writing Month, where you write 50,000 words (The technical word count of a complete novel, albeit a short one.) by December 1st. I’m going about NaNoWriMo differently this year. I’m already 30k words into my rough draft of Eastside Faerie, so I’m going to write 50k and update my progress here.

I’ll post where I am in my plot as well as word count. I encourage writers who are participating to engage in the comments. The more the merrier.

If you don’t think you can write that fast in uncertain times like these, that’s okay. I still wish you luck and happy writing!

Tammy loves to build worlds with words, exploring themes the effect of diaspora on the generations born elsewhere than their ancestors with the backdrop of tech or magic and dragons (sometimes both). These stories are inspired by her own family's immigrant experience. She's queer and many of her characters fall somewhere on the LGBTQIA spectrum (though that is not the focus of her work). She's married to an engineer who dances. Together they are raising three precocious teens in the Seattle suburbs. Two of her children are neurodiverse. Her experiences have taught her much about the world, its beauties and its injustices. All of this comes through in her fiction with a healthy dose of absurd humor.
