I’m writing a novel
Alright – I feel like this header/title/whateveryouwanttocallit is a bit of a misnomer because I’ve written novels in the past and what I am working on right now feels like straight up word vomit.
NanoWrimo is upon us – We are officially on day 6 (in my time zone) – I am 15,000 words in.
That is the most words I have EVER had this early in the game. Keeping in mind that for four years I was also in post secondary during this time of the year, and last year I was a newly wed and starting my new job so I was lucky enough to even make it though 50,000. All things considered, I feel incredible.
I am pantsing this year – which is a not so fancy… I don’t even know who came up with that term… way of saying that I am jumping into this without an idea or anything. In fact November 1st popped up and I still had no clue so I decided to just write about my D&D character – she needed a back story… I may have told my DM I already had one, it’s okay he’ll take it easy on me for lying since I am his wife.
If you are also into NanoWrimo – add me!
If you aren’t then a) why not and b) if you’re not crazy/have sanity/are not a writer – and you just want to know what the heck I am talking about then you should check it out.
Either way – here is my author bio: http://nanowrimo.org/participants/scrtsolstice
My apologies for the somewhat dismal previous post, and then the lack of follow-up post. Hopefully I will have a chance to write more to update this site soon, but that may be delayed due to this little thing called Nanowrimo. In the mean time if you miss this glorified hobby horror of my writing – then I have also started a little fan fiction here:
All my best — or whatever 🙂
