Okay, I admit it. I’ve been avoiding my blog. Why? Honestly, I’m not entirely sure. I guess because I’ve felt I had nothing worth saying. So…bear with me if all of rest of this post is rather uninteresting.
Anyway. Most of my previous posts mentioned NaNoWriMo and how I was planning for it (and excited for it), so I guess I need to mention that. Well. I’m doing NaNoWriMo!
As of this very moment, my word-count is just over forty-nine thousand words—though I suppose you can see that in the little word-tracker bar in the corner. I hope to have fifty thousand words before I go to bed tonight, but we’ll see how that goes.
Anyway, I’m rather enjoying the story. It has problems—in fact, the first twenty thousand words or so are all a problem in and of itself—but I like
most of the characters and the plot is…not going where I expected. Then again, I was after all basically doing an experiment with this novel. I developed my characters and I built my world, but I didn’t figure out my plot. That way, I’d know about the story, but I’d still be free to discovery-write it as much as I wished.
So far, that’s going fairly okay. I mean, there have been spots where not knowing what my plot was did kind of screw me up or slow me down, but I am having fun with it. I know there’ll be a lot of editing when I’m finished, however.
And that is about all I have to say. How’s the writing going for everyone else?
