Nanowrimo Day 11: Being Prepared.


 I thought I would do alot better than I have.  In eleven days I've only written 1000 words.  One of the issues I had was starting November without an idea on what I was going to write.  So I used my Writer Emergency Cards.  That gave me an idea about a character that was working for a company while trying to find her missing brother.  Another part I thought I could tie back in was, what if the company she worked for somehow had something to do with her.

It was a good enough start to an idea but I struggled to make it work.  Then life happened.  More or less.  Writing wasn't as much of a priority as I should have made it, and to be honest, the story idea didn't capture me like a good one should.

So while I am not on track for Nano.  I am still going to do my best to write every day.  It may not be with my new character Axle but as long as I make an effort to set time to the side for this, I'm better off than I was before.

Nanowrimo: Day 1. Me showing up.



Hi All.

It's been a while hasn't it.

The reason for my post today, is that I'm going to be using MAEC to hold me accountable this month for the NaNoWriMo.  I don't have a story idea or anything.  (Organized aren't I?!) But, I plan to write everyday for a month nonetheless.

There are going to be two weekends this month that I'll be away from the computer but fingers crossed I'll be able to get some internet to hold up my end of the deal.

Every year I do Nano.  There have been quite a few of those years that I've given up, or fizzled out on a story idea.  But that's ok.  Because I showed up and I tried.

So today I'm here to declare the beginning of Nano, and cheers to the next 30 days of writing!

Charlie.
