The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
Have you ever participated in NaNoWriMo? If yes, how did it go?

YES! I won in 2018 and 2019 and I’m doing it again this year. The rules are pretty flexible. The goal is to write 50,000 words in one month. Some people write and some people edit. I am doing a combination of writing and editing this year.
In 2018, I wrote the rough, rough draft of my first complete novel. But through doing my book blog (and reading so many incredible books), I just knew my story was missing some very key elements.
In 2019, I basically reworked and rewrote my novel since the key components I felt it needed changed the whole story. That took my story to well over 50,000 words. It is more around 80,000 words. I completed all but 7 scenes during NaNoWriMo 2019.
So, now, 2020 – I plan on finishing those 7 scenes then doing a read through to check and make sure my plot is working with those changes and it hasn’t gotten disjointed in the process. And then I will do a basic edit to get rid of typos and other basic fixes like that.
What’s going to happen after that? 🤷🏻♀️
