I’m still doing my best to catch up on everything before November 1st. Not everything will get done, but that’s okay. Nothing is so pressing that I can’t squeeze in a few minutes to do it during November or wait to do it in December.
Also, in November, I’ll be a bit slow getting around to everyone. Writing will come first. But I’ll get to everything I can as time allows.
Okay, show of hands, who is doing NaNoWriMo? Good and please be sure to leave your screenname so I can add you as a buddy. I’m bookworm0753.
I’m doing something rather crazy this year. I’m writing two novels for NaNo.
The first one is Starred, a YA Contemporary. I’m writing Starred very differently. For one, there will be Acts and Scenes, although still written as prose instead of stage directions/dialogue. Two, I’m writing it randomly. There are 30 scenes, and I’m going to use Random.org to choose which two I’ll write a day. If I finish two scenes early one day, I’ll go to the next random scene. My goal is to finish Starred by November 15th and hopefully have it be at least 50,000 words.
The second novel is The Last Prophetess, a YA Futuristic Fantasy. The Last Prophetess takes place 3000 years after The Phoenix Prophetess. Blame Apenth for giving me this crazy idea to write the two novels. It’s all his fault. *winks* I plan to write this novel like I normally do with chapters and consecutively. I haven’t figured out how many chapters there will be yet, but I hope to finish it by November 30th and have it at least be 50,000 words.
Yes, I know I’ll have to bulk both novels up later, but the goal is to get both stories down. In a month. Yeah. It may not happen, but I’m going to try. I’m looking forward to it.
What’s the fastest you’ve ever written a novel, i.e. first draft?
