This year, we’re happy to announce that all three of The Lady Nerds will be participating in NaNoWriMo! Last year M.E. Hearn and Vivien Chase set goals of 90,000 words, almost double the standard NaNoWriMo goal of 50,000 words! This year, we’re all at different stages in our current projects, but we’ll once again be aiming to hit around 90,000 words each. Read onward to hear more about our individual goals for this year:


Lady Vivien

Vivien Chase (aka Lady Foxcraft) will be drafting The Science of Betrayal, book three of her five-book steampunk series, tentatively titled Files from the Clark Institute. The overall word count goal for the novel is 80,000, but she’ll be thrilled to reach 50,000 by November 30th!



The_Lady_Nerds__ME_TransparentM.E. Hearn (aka Lady Hawkeye) is dedicating this year’s NaNoWriMo to a full revision of her current WIP. The first draft of Vanguard is finished and sufficiently rested, making November the perfect time for a good spit and polish. M.E. will be focusing on everything from closing plot holes and clarifying world-building to tweaking character arcs and ensuring her villains are actually villainous. She has a plan for climbing this literary mountain…stay tuned to find out whether the plan flies or flails starting November 1!

The_Lady_Nerds__V_kandishebert_RevisedKandis Hebert (aka Lady Dynamo) will be embarking on a re-structuring and rewrite project. The Silver Cage is undergoing a makeover to combine what was originally planned as 2 separate novels to become one longer, richer work. The scheming and planning has already started, so the real work of re-writing can begin for NaNoWriMo in November!
