Another 852 words written tonight, for a grand total of 8,363 pages written during NaNoWriMo.
Same situation, far off pace but still writing. Now as to why the “No” needs to be removed from NaNoWriMo, for me at least.
After working on the novel, a spark hit. It was the need to write a side project that’s been burning in the back of my brain since 2005. I thought of the idea, but couldn’t flesh it out. Then, in a basic conversation about something completely unrelated, the way to make this idea unique came to me. So I haven’t slowed down since.
Instead of working on the second novel, I’m actually working on a script. So I guess NaNoWriMo has become NaScriWriMo. That rolls off the tongue easily, doesn’t it? He said, sarcasm pouring out. So of the 8,363 word written this month, 4,933 belong to the script. It’s coming so easily and in the hands of the right director could be an incredible thriller inspired by Hitchcock and the basic fear of losing someone you love.
So, onward. It may not be the perfect picture of what NaNoWriMo is all about, but it’s still writing and I’m loving the hell out of it. How are you coming? Chime in below with the comments section.
