As you can see by the banner, I am going to participate with NaNoWriMo this year!
The first time I heard about it, was Autumn last year (at that point my blog was up and running for six months), and I had no idea what it was and kind of forgot about it.
This year I saw it pop up on YouTube and I decided to do some research (good decision btw), the idea sounded fun and I signed up.
This all happened five days ago, and enough time has passed for me to contemplate about what I have done. 50.000 words is A LOT, and I am drowning in my homework at the moment, so I decided to lower my personal goal to 20.000 (667 words a day, that should be possible, right?) At the time I signed up I also had no idea what I was going to write, I pantsed two stories before, how hard could a third one be. WRONG, the two other stories I wrote both stranded because I was too lazy to do the editing work afterwards (I was eleven) or because the plot just kind of sank in at the middle. Apart from that and my blog I have no experience whatsoever. So I started planning, and with planning I mean PLANNING. I haven’t been able to sleep at night because the story is swirling around in my head. And here I am, right now I kind of have an idea what I am doing, or where I am going at the least. And I am going to keep planning til Nanowrimo starts, and probably a while after. The point is that I am pretty sure I am not going to win, but I am exited (and with that I mean watching YouTube video’s till three am about Nano survival kit’s).
If you are joining Nanowrimo this year and are looking for a writing buddy, don’t hesitate to add me (unless you are a serial killer, but that means you have loads of interesting stories to tell, so add me anyways). Since nobody I know in RL is into writing or books (at least at the same degree), I am really looking for a few people to venture in the black hole of sleepless nights with me. My username is sophiethebookworm.
Are you going to nano the nano this year? Let me know in the comments!
p.s HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!
