NaNoWriMo Day 1: I slept late, went to the mall, ate dinner with a friend and got my hair cut.
NaNoWriMo: Day 2: Slept late, drank a cup of tea, did dishes, and looked at Grad programs.
The point: My NaNoWriMo month is off to a rough start, but I wanted to take this opportunity to say that I’m going to give it a try. It’s the busiest month I’ve had in awhile, what with the holidays coming up and new jobs…and Agh! But this is important to me.
Except, I’m going to use the rules as “guidelines,” and well, cheat…essentially. I’ve already got my story in mind, and I already have a brief brainstorm, ANND I have already about 9,000 words written.
The story that I’m going to try to write in its entirety, even if it is a crappy first draft, is my story Dawn’s Rising, which I had hoped to self publish, and use as a platform for this blog. It’s been on a hiatus for awhile, but it still lives…somewhat.
Bringing that idea to life is very important to me, and something that I still want to complete and finish….whether good, bad, ugly…I just have to face my fears, learn how to create a compelling plot, and storm on ahead no matter how many self doubts try to bring me down!
So I am going to be using NaNoWriMo as a motivator…and hopefully get some kind of finished product as a result!
Any other fellow NaNoWriMo writers out there? What are you going to write about?
I’d love to hear from you!
Happy Writing everyone!
