NaNoWriMo Ups the Ante...Working Under Pressure


Okay. I announced earlier that I'm taking the NaNoWriMo Challenge this year...50,000 words in 30 days (http://www.nanowrimo.org/). I've asked other authors to join me for the challenge and have about a dozen "buddies" for the journey. I thought it would be nice to have the support and also being accountable generally brings about success.
After corresponding with the wonderful, Gail Delaney, Editor and Chief at Desert Breeze Publishing (DBP), I found out that she needs a historical novel for the month of April. My first novel, an inspirational romantic suspense, will release with DBP in August. You can find out more about DBP on their website at http://www.desertbreezepublishing.com/.
I said in an earlier post that I've been thinking about writing a WWII novel. Gail is holding the April slot for my historical, which I will write during NaNoWriMo. The title of the novel is Queen of Hearts. Good thing I work well under pressure. Give me a deadline and I'll break my neck meeting it. What about you? Do you work well under pressure or do you faint?
