So I’m back after a long hiatus.
NaNoWriMo: Due to conflicts on my end, I was unable to complete the challenge for November 2011. I stopped at about halfway through, and the story itself will regrettably sit in its folder while I plow through this load of fanfiction and get it all out of my head.
I swear, once it is all written, I shall do a dance.
My plan is to update this frequently. It’ll be nice to talk to someone out there.
I’ll admit right now, that the only reason I’m not taking the daily challenge from the Daily Post at WordPress.com is because I know next to nothing about what is going on at Wall Street, so I don’t think I’d have anything intelligent to say about it. Looks like I have a little research to do…
Anyway, not much progress on the novel outlining because I’ve been swamped with schoolwork, but it is my plan to finish the outline by Tuesday. Assuming that the story doesn’t extend beyond forty chapters, which I’m hoping it won’t because forty chapters is a handful for me. Especially since I’m juggling numerous other writing projects at the same time, and will continue to do so during November.
But I have been exchanging emails with one of the NaNoWriMo administrators, mostly over profile and story-related information. Story profile has been updated to include the story’s title, synopsis, and genre. I’d include the book cover too, BUT that is one of the things I talked about with the administrators, since there is no spot available for it. Once November starts, I’ll include a link to that particular profile.
I guess that’s all, I promise tomorrow’s will be a little more exciting 😉
Welcome to the unofficial National Novel Writing Month blog of an aspiring writer.
For those who are unfamiliar with the idea, NaNoWriMo is a challenge where you, the author, write 50,000 words in the 30 days of November. The idea is to just write. Don’t edit, don’t rewrite, just get it out on paper. December is for the finishing/editing. I know it sounds daunting, and I saw it as such during my first year, but in the end I found it to be a lot of fun. Granted, the manuscript from last year is still sitting on my desktop, waiting patiently for me to remember its existence.
The point of this blog is to share experiences, stories, and maybe post a webpage or two that happened to catch my eye. It is also a motivator for me, since one of the rules is to tell as many people as possible so you’ll be motivated to pass the 50K word finish line.
What better way to tell people than to write about it on the Internet?
Anyway, right now, since it isn’t November yet, I’ve just been working on chapter outlines, which is permitted. Actual writing has to wait until 12:00 AM, November 1st.
And since I happen to stay up past midnight on an almost daily basis, that won’t be a problem. That was actually a trick that worked very well last year.
So, that’s all for now. Ciao!
