Are you ready to get LAFFN?

My plan was to have LAFFN (Let's All Finally Finish a Novel) twice per year: January and July. July is just around the corner, so it's time to start gearing up! I didn't get very far in January, but now that I don't have a day job anymore, I'm ready to finish the first sequel to Bubba Goes National. It's called Bubba to the Rescue, and I have 51,104 words in it so far. I think another 20k or so will do it. I'm still working on reading everything I'd already written since I'd forgotten since the previous NaNo and editing/adding as I go. My goal for June is to finish that, decide where the story is going and maybe add a couple more chapters so I'm well set to finish this sucker in July. I would like to get it published by November 1st, so I'll need to get right on editing, rewriting and formatting and all the rest of it.

As an extra incentive, I'm going to give all participants a prize: a graphic you can post on your blog, facebook, writer's forums, etc. "Winners" will get a second, equally special, winner graphic! How can you pass this up? And all for free, folks. Magical.

OK, LAFFers, what's your goal? Are you with me?

Don't know what the heck I'm talking about? Read my blog post about it to get the scoop.

I'm with ya, Jennifer. I need to finish my WIP and real life has calmed down enough to give me time and energy for some fiction focus. Thanks for doing this again!
