NaNoWriMo Day 12: How it Went

I didn’t meet my word count for Day 12, but the day wasn’t a complete wash. After my morning workout, I revised and edited an article. I also worked on some marketing campaigns for my novella. Those writing-related endeavors took up a good chunk of my time devoted to writing.

I jotted down some notes for two prequels or related stories for Tam Lin: A Modern, Queer Retelling. One will be the story of Tam Lin told from the fae queen’s perspective. The other will be a story about Fergus when he was human and how he became a fae.

For my NaNoWriMo project, I wrote about 500 words, making my total count about 500 words fewer than today’s goal of 20, 004. I’m not disheartened by this, nor do I feel ‘behind.’ I’m over the halfway mark in the novel’s outline and around 47,000 words total.

Hope today went well for you. 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.

  1. Whoa, I wouldn’t feel behind if I were in your position either. That’s a lot of words you’ve got there. Also, good luck on your writing and marketing campaigns!

    (Also, I notice you’ve got a theme of rubber duckies going on. It’s amazing.)
