It is NaNoWriMo Eve ...erm...All Hallows Eve. I think my priorities are in order, who cares about Halloween when the impending month is all I can think about.
I've participated in National Novel Writing Month for the past two years and both were fails. But that did not discourage me in the least. This year will be the year that I write 50k in 30days.
Let's be buddies on NaNoWriMo's website: http://nanowrimo.org/participants/danasquare
My NaNoWriMo Planning:
I have an outline. It is printed out at 12 pages long and covers 24 chapters. It still needs a lot more work because there are a ton of plot holes, but for my last two years of basically zero planning this a huge step up for me. I have pinterest board that I am in love with! I really need to thank Hannah Davies, for combing through my outline and being an amazing cheerleader for this story idea.
Things Still To Do:
I really need to make a music playlist to listen to or just to go with the vibes of my story. This is always really hard for me. I also need to set up my scrivener doc. I have been outlining in google docs, but I have the Microsoft style of it for story writing by chapters.
About my NaNoWriMo Project:
I am just so in love with this story. It is YA/NA high fantasy following two really strong female characters on their journeys of self discovery. There are assassins, magic, prophecies, courts, murder, mystery and just epicness. I feel like it is really unique for the genre and is just a story that I would want written just so I can read it.
I did the NaNoWriMo Tag! I would love for you to do it! I also announced something pretty cool in this video!
Are you participating in NaNoWriMo? Are you as freaking excited as I am? I just want to start writing right now! I am ready to kick butt and get this story that I am in love with on the page.
