NaNoWriMo 2010


It's that time of year again! Yup, time to take on the craziness that is NaNoWriMo. And I just happen to be behind ALREADY, and it's only the first day. Dentist appointments, budgeting, and bill paying do not like being pushed aside for things like NaNoWriMo. Or sickness. My daughter was sick all last week, so I was unable to prep as much as I wanted to.

So, I still have my novel soundtrack to to figure out, my spreadsheet to set up, and of course actually having a plot. The plot bunnies are avoiding me. I have two characters in my head (one who still needs a name) and a conflict, so I'm hoping that will lead me to a plot at some point while writing.

What was that? I should be working on Dead As Dreams, you say? Maybe. Probably. Yes. But I wanted to not be a Rebel this year (at least to start out with) and write something new. The working title for this year's NaNo novel is Forsworn Madness.

Who else will be working toward that 50,000 word goal this month? You can find me on the NaNoWriMo website as alexagrave - feel free to buddy me!

My writertopia meter is below. I will attempt to update it a couple times a week. And I need to fix my word count stuff on the left side (sorry I haven't updated it in a while - class has been crazy...only one more essay and then the big paper for the term!).
