NaNoWriMo Day 23 and 24: I Accidentally on Purpose Quit

I’m not nearly as distraught as this woman.

I still wanted to participate in NaNoWriMo because I like the community. However, I wanted to change my goal. Don’t ask me how I did it but somehow in the process of changing my goal from an unfeasible 50K words to a likely 40K, I deleted any numerical goal. My new goal, according to NaNoWriMo, is to finish Eastside Faerie. That’s as unlikely as hitting 50,000 words.

So, I give up. Today is my last day reporting about NaNo. Am I done writing my WIPs? Nope. I’ll still be working on Eastside Faerie and Warrior Tithe, but it will be at my regular pace of 500-1K words a day.

Hope you’re all doing well! 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.
