It’s going well! I convinced both my mom and dad to do it too and they’re both happy so far. My mom was very hesitant, she requires a lot of planning for her stories, she likes spreadsheets and outlines galore. So far, she said she’s doing a lot of writing where the story is telling her, as she writes it, what is and what is going to happen. Which, of course, is how I write! She’s enjoying it, for the most part.
My dad is a little slower at writing, he really likes to think about what he’s going to say. It’s the same when we talks, and everything else he does. He’s very academic. Very thorough. It is taking him a little longer but he is loving the challenge, and how much he is learning and committing to doing NaNo. The end result of finishing a whole novel? Very rewarding and prideful.
I’m a bit more seasoned in this. I write quicker, I undertand how to push forward and not look back, I look forward to seeing how my story develops, and this will be my fourth novel/novella. It’s going great for us all. Today marks the 5k point for us!
I’m at 5052.
Of course I’m doing it! I started at midnight and everything. Took me nearly an hour to get to 1750 words. Woo. I hope to work a little faster than that some days. I guess that’s not too bad though. If that was my pace for the whole month, that’s only an hour a day! Plus I know I’ll probably be wanting to do more words/time than that.
Not to mention, NaNo is not the only thing I’m working on. I have my big MS to start editing again, my newly finished novella to continue editing, and a collection of short stories I’m trying to constantly work on.
Lots to write. I love to be busy with it though.
One would think I would finish editing one of the three novels/novellas I’ve written already, first. Well!! Shush it!
I’m currently editing two! My baby, the big ole novel, is currently being professionally edited. It’s taking way longer than I had hopes, but the editor is paying if forward so I can’t really complain! I’ve learned a lot since they started, mostly from them, so it’s been a great experience. I really look forward to getting it back and editing it myself. It’s been quite a long time since I’ve read it now, which I’ve always heard is a great way to look at your own work.
I’m also slowly editing my recently finished (very rough draft) novella. Though I know it still sucks, I’m quite pleased with the progress I’ve made. I even started reading it to my writing group (on Mondays), and I hate reading out loud to people, especially my own writing, especially when it’s being critiqued!
Well, that’s the longest personal post I’ve done in ages!
Finished hand writing a novella. Now I just need to type it up and double its length!
Always feels good to finish a story. Even though I’m unhappy with a lot of it and it needs a ton of work.
About time for a new notebook, as long as its just as cute! Thoughts on where to shop? #writing #notebook #kawaii
Some feedback/critique would be helpful, even if I do feel strange about it. I’m not good at having people read my stuff but, I need to get over that and improve.
Let me know?
Only 60 pages to go! Then, I’ll transfer those edits onto the screen, and probably edit as I go. And let’s not forget about all those new scenes I have to add, then smooth out throughout the rest of the MS so it’s all smooth and whole.
THEN, it’s on to another read through! That can be done by the end of March? Please?
