known as "National Novel Writing Month", or NaNoWriMo (or just NaNo),
a time when ambitious authors try to write 50,000 words, which is either a
complete novella or a good start to a novel. To be honest, I have tried and
failed at NaNo several times, mostly due to this being a busy time of school
and life (summer is oh-so-much better for writing, in my opinion). Now, though,
my life has become less complicated and, moreover, I'm itching to get a good
bit of writing done, so I decided to do a modified NaNo this year. I'm still
going to try for 50,000 words, but I'm not going to tie myself down to one
novel. I have at least three good novel ideas vying for attention in my head,
as well as some more versatile project ideas for this website. Thus, I will
write whatever novel, serial, or short story comes easiest.
I'm first focusing on
finishing the final short story tie-in for Miscast Spells, which will be a
story spotlighting the princess-turned-rabbit, Emmaline. I outlined and wrote
some notes (read: scribbled wildly and near-illegibly in a notebook) and
started typing those up at the end of October and the beginning of November,
but properly started writing and editing yesterday, November 8th. As of today,
I have 5,267 words, well within my goal of 2,500 words a day.
NaNo is off to a good
start. Let's keep it up!
