My novel: All the chapters are the same, the characters are alike, and the plot is random and unconstructed. I would totally give this up if it wasn’t for Tess – I mean, it’s hard to quit a book when your friend is one of the main characters. Nope, not happening. Well, I guess that’s what alpha-readers are for!
I was down to 17,000 words when I opened the document last night – as you can tell, very behind. Yesterday was the 20th – in order to complete my goal, I have to write 1000 words each day. *gulps* So, I caught up to 19,000 before I got too tired to write anymore and went to bed. 😛
I’m in camp. No, not the marshmallow-roasting, fireside-singing kind of camp – though that sounds really great right now – but the dreaded Camp NaNoWriMo. *gulp* We’re halfway through April, which means only 16 days to write 16,000 words? GO AWAY. I’M SCARED.
You might be thinking that I’m doing pretty well – the thing is, I’m barely scraping it by. Last night, I changed my goal to 30,000 words vs. 50,000 words – my original goal. Why? Because of MAY. Grr…(yes, the month)
Hello! I am sitting in an airport expecting to wait for two hours and then hop on a fifteen-hour flight. Let me repeat that, FIFTEEN HOURS. So, since I brought my laptop and the airport has free wifi, *happy dance* why not blog” So, I’m bringing today a freestyle poem that I am making up as I go along. So, I’m going to rip off the “I’m Possible” quote and say that it will be imperfection. But the word itself says I’m Perfection. So original.
BLEH. I have gone through three plots, and all of them flopped on me. *glares at them* *realizes that I made them so I should be glaring at myself* *tries to do said glaring at self* *realizes that’s physically impossible* *gives up* Hmm…so that’s what goes on in my brain every day. XD
All of the ideas, I really just love, but all of them as well…UGH. So that is why we are gathered here today for YOU to decide which one I should continue! Because what the personality test says: “If caught between a rock and a hard place, Protagonists can be stricken with paralysis, imagining all the consequences of their actions, especially if those consequences are humanitarian.” My, how dramatic…ally accurate!
