NaNoWriMo 2013- It Ends!
« on: October 19, 2013, 10:23:39 pm »

Hello all. This will be our home on the forums for the 2013 NaNoWriMo season, I suppose.

If you have anything you want me to put on the OP, just ask, and I'll get around to it.

If you don't know what NaNoWriMo is/are new to it, look below:

Last year I only got ~32k words into my novel. This year, my goal is to add 50k to that work, or finish the book, whatever comes first. It bends the rules, yes, but I'd like to actually finish something for once in my life :P

On the plus side, while last year I only had a working title ("Stuff Happens and Junk") this time around I have a legit title: "Harald the Hero." Still a little underwhelming, but it fits the plot and is probably the best title I'll come up with.

Never done this because I've never had the forethought or free time to prep ahead. I'll try and put in at least an attempt this time around. Nothing lost by trying, right?

Should I try this? I have almost five started novels* in ~/latex/books (and two more in ~/latex/books/OLDSERIES), none of which I particularly care to finish up as a NaNoWriMo thing. I have written one short-short story in full, and another barely started.

I've also a charter of a fake secret organization written up that I wrote during the last couple of months of high school last year, the organization being prime novel material. Part of me says "YES GO FOR IT", while the rest of me says "you'll be bored in a week".

I think I might just go for it, but if anyone reading this can predict how much joy I'd derive from this, that would be swell.

*and four more not-novels.

Why not? Worst that can happen is you don't finish.

Was already planning to do this. First time, but looking forward to the inevitable sleep deprivation.

November? Damn you exams!

Maybe I can hammer out something rough-edged in six days.

I tried once before and didn't finish. This year I'm more determined. I've got lots of Neil Gaiman quotes lying around to keep me going.

"If you only write when you're inspired, you might make a fairly decent poet, but you will never be a novelist."

I've started and never finished many novels. I have finished many short stories but almost none worth publishing - they all needed more work and I get bored and forget about projects too easily. It's time I finished something. I have some notes and a very loose plan. I'll keep thinking about it and see what I come up with.

The part of my brain that wants to do NaNo is slowly overpowering the part that knows it's not a good idea. I expect this to only get worse as November approaches.

I tried NaNoWriMo last year but didn't get very far besides a lot of universe building (which I love, so eh). Hopefully I'll do better this year!
