WOO!

NaNoWriMo site launch was today!  I’m still waiting on my profile to be updated to give me my very handy-awesome ML powers, but it seems like everything is coming along steadily.

Anyone participating in NaNo is free to add me as a friend.  <3  I’m super excited.  I’ve even got my novel concept finally coming together.  I had three or four in the running last month, but I decided.  =P

My very awesome relationship with the Southbridge public library is  only getting awesomer!  (Awesomer– new word.  Check it out.)  Margaret and Ashley loved our ideas for Inkwell Imaginings, and they’re excited about NaNoWriMo and the write-ins we’ll be holding there.  They even mentioned that they were sorry they couldn’t PAY Jess and I for the workshops we’re presenting!  PAY!  I never thought the work was worth that, but now that I think about it, I am working harder on this than anything I’ve ever been paid for. Lol.

Anyway, excitement aside, I’m going to be super busy over the next two months.  I’ll keep everyone updated!  I might even start my NaNoWriMo video blog again this year.  It’s faster than typing, but we shall see.  Those might be posted here instead of text updates.

I loveth you all!

  1. YAY for vlogging ^_^.

    I added you :). I have a buddy!!! WOO I have a buddy! I’m so nervous about NaNoWriMo. I’m in the last stages of my current WiP (the first draft of it, that is) and I haven’t yet begun working on the concept for what I want to write in November… And since this is my first time, I’m super nervous that I’m missing something, that I’m not participating in the forums yet (but it’s because I’m a newbie – I’m shy!) and that I’m totally going to fuck it all up :(

    • No! You’ll be great! I wouldn’t worry too much about missing something. I missed so much my first year, my story was a train wreck (but I finished and so can you!). As proof, it’s listed on my FictionPress account. Lol! Over-plotting and adapting made me lose last year.

      My advice is: give yourself a beginning and an end, a few key scenes, and some character sheets, and you’ll be good to go. It leaves you a TON of room for kind-of-random filler scenes if your word count gets low. (It sounds like cheating, it’s not, I promise. lol)

      Go to the newbie forum! Or the All ages Coffeehouse forum! People are SUPER friendly and helpful. And if you need encouragement or help throughout the month, you can always email me. I only have 5 people in my region that I’m running, so I’ll have more than enough time to help out others. =]

      You’re going to do great! And remember to have fun, because it’s supposed to be a fun kind of stress, and not a stressful kind of stress. =P

    Wonderful! Glad things are coming together for you, m’dear. :) It all sounds like awesomesauce, (another word that should be added, like awesomer).
