NaNoWriMo, Day 5

I would have needed to write 5000 words today (oh, yesterday, it's past midnight *gah*) to make up for the non-writing of the last two days.

Only, I mentioned I wouldn't have much time today either and right now I'm way too tired and uninspired to go on. At least I got 1725 words today, that leaves me with 4942 words tomorrow (instead of 6667).
That's the only positive thing right now (writing related)...

NaNoWriMo, Day 3

No words today. I thought I could get them in between two appointments but I didn't. But I have been thinking about what I could write, so that counts for something, doesn't it? :)

At least I have a bit of a scene in my head, so I know what will happen next.

Thing is, I don't think I'll write tomorrow either, I'm out and about all day. But - seeing as my godfather has a meeting in the evening - I might skip going to the cinema alone and write then. We'll see.
And depending on how awake I am tomorrow morning, I might write on the train :)

If not, 5000 words on Thursday when I don't have time either. Great :D

Churned them out within about 1 hour, and I feel kinda mentally exhausted now, but good nonetheless. :)

NaNoWriMo, Day 1

1696 words today. Yahoo! :)

I must be crazy for doing this - and with a new project no less! - but I feel good about that one.
I don't have a working title yet (only again a main character that named herself :) ) and maybe I'll write a synopsys later.

I looked through my notes yesterday (it's really only a mail folder where I put all those e-mails with ideas I used to send myself from work) and found notes to a story that I still very much like. Only not the circumstances I originally thought this to happen in (after WW 2). So I thought a bit, and a bit more and came to the decision that since I love fantasy/science fiction and always wanted to write a book in one of those genres (I started one book for each way back, but nevergot around to much with) I could place the story in a fantasy/AU universe. So there. I'm quite happy with this at the moment. And I really hope and pray that I will see this through this time :) I have quite a few ideas already, and I'm sure I'll be able to pull off the 50,000 words. Probably very crappy 50,000 words, but words no less. I have all the time to edit later and even to decide to not do anything with it. But maybe I'll like it well enough at the end of the month that I will give the story a chance.

Total word count: 1696
