NaNoWriMo 2016
« on: October 20, 2016, 09:10:01 AM »
So..... It's that time of year again.... 

Who is planning to participate? 

What are you thinking of writing? 

What is even going on?

(For those that may not have heard of it. NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month. Basically, the goal is to write a 50,000 word ROUGH DRAFT of a novel over the 30 day month of November. Which, for Americans can be a little..... complicated, as there is a big family holiday right in the final stretch. You can join other people in your area with write-ins and things on the NaNoWriMo website.)

If we are not already writing buddies, and you want to add me, I'm Sideshows & Gorillas.

This year, I am still sort of undecided on what I am writing.  I am contemplating working on a few little one-shots or something for various things I've mentioned in the past, as well as the novel I have been writing all this month.

I'm gonna finish my original story that I did for NaNo in 2012 and 2013.  it doesn't have another 50k, I don't think.  at least 10k at the very minimum, but I also plan to throw away and rewrite a large chunk near where I left off, so I might get all the way to a whopping 20k this year.  but the main thing is to FINISH it.

my profile is here if you want to add me to compare wordcounts so you feel better about yours...  mostly I'll be blogging about it on the sideblog here.

ETA: oh heck, why did my images suddenly break on that blog? I hope it's only that one, I don't feel like fixing a bunch of layouts today.

I AM GOING TO FINISH PROTECTING YOU

IF IT KILLS ME

EVEN IF I HAVE TO WRITE IT IN ALL CAPS

no, but, seriously this time

it will be ELEVEN YEARS on the 7th November since I started this.

IT IS TIME TO FINISH IT

(1800 words for day one. It seems to be just as hard rewriting from rough bits of draft as going from scratch, so I'm counting all these words in the new draft as fair game.)

OMG we're crazy Down...

So that's why I can never sleep properly...
Who the bloody hell is dreaming about me because so help me God,
I will smother them in the face with a throw pillow.

I ended up writing around 1,328 yesterday!  my goal to keep me on track is 500 per day, since I'm trying to finish my NaNo from '12/'13...  so that's good!  reworked a scene that has been bothering me.   now I have to really dig into leading up to the big ~final climactic battle~ woo that I've been putting off for three years T^T;;  a lot of it is written but it's very chaotic; organizing it so it flows better is what's scaring me most haha.

YOU GUYS CAN DO IT!  let's finish these beasts that have been haunting us for years!

I probably need to just suck it up and print out what I have so far, so I can work out what I have and where I need to go, but I don't want to waste paper on it yet.  I think I will tie to the ending and then print and organise it, because I will need to do that before we leave for Texas, or I don't think I will get a full draft.

You've got more words than me, Suz!  I need to catch up!
