My NaNoWriMo Project 2022

It's here! Well, it's almost here. National Novel Writing Month begins on the first of November which means we're about 5 days out, depending on where you are located and what time zone you are in. And let's be honest... I'm a writer. Math has never really been my thing.

The Decision

To be honest, I didn't realize that I wanted to participate in NaNoWriMo this year until a couple of days. I realized that it was almost November and I felt the need to want to write something. I have a lot of projects swimming around my head right now, but I decided that this month I will be working on the first draft of My Summer With Him, a contemporary romance.

My Project

This month I will be writing the first draft of My Summer With Him, a contemporary romance. I don't have all the details ironed out yet but it's about a young woman who lives in a fictional beach town in Delaware. She works at the restaurant that she co owns with her mother's best friend (her mother has since passed away).

Her life is pretty busy because she helps take care of her four sisters as well as works long hours. She meets a guy at the restaurant one day and they immediately have a connection. but when she gets back to the house she finds out that he's in town visiting her sister, she knows that nothing can ever happen between them.

After a girls night with two of her friends, she decides to go on a dating app and see what happens. As she begins putting herself out there and going on dates with new guys, she keeps running into the first guy from the restaurant. After witnessing a terrible date that she's on, he agrees to help her find someone who is actually dateable.

Will he be able to help her find someone dateable? Or is he the one who she should be dating all along?

My Plans

It's going to be a busy weekend. I'm going down to Rehoboth with my boyfriend so that we can spend some time at the beach and run in the Seawitch 5k. I'll be taking a laptop so hopefully I can finish my plotting over the weekend and add the finish touches on October 31st (Monday).

It's ambitious, but I'm feeling inspired and excited about the upcoming month. Are you participating in NaNoWriMo? What is your novel going to be about?
