NaNoWriMo

I have never written anything more than posts and assigned essays and things like that, and this is a BUSY month, yet I just signed up for NaNoWriMo. God help me.

I'm up to 3101 words, so not too far behind for starting a day late. I have a very bare outline, but may end up having to splice it with an outline for a story I had in mind previously that I never started.

I suspect this is going to suck royally, but at least I'm writing!

Yeah, at least you're writing. I'm under my real name this year, so I'm Susan Bischoff.

I didn't make my word count today. Many excuses, but none very impressive.

I saw your count, you're doing awesome! I'm so new at the whole writing thing I'm just aiming to try to finish. Quality can come later I guess!

You'll make it! You can do it!

I'm doing OK so far, but it's still early. I think later in the month will be the hard part. Right now I'm using the "swiss cheese" method: write the parts that seem easy and leave notes in places where I got stuck. I think going back to do the hard parts will be where I want to give up.

YAY! Keep going. I'm deciding that from today forward I'm going to stop trying to control what the characters are doing...they obvisiously know more than me (how silly of me to think otherwise).

I'm Kyrenea on there as well if you want to buddy.

Yeah, mine are like that too. I was never a person who had characters in her head, but then I got dolls who became characters, and now I said "OK, for this I'll do something totally not related to those characters." And then two of them waltzed right in and said "oh, hey, you're telling my story!" and I said "No, this is someone else's story." and the response was "Yeah, but she's my sister." "And my, um... not sure what to call her, but I'm important here too!"
