Default Any SCers doing National Novel Writing Month?

Apologies if a thread exists for this, but:

It's November, and National Novel Writing Month has officially begun. (Note: The website gets bogged down for the first few days as people update their wordcounts). The target is to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. I've done this for a few years, and it's alwys been a great boon to my writing.

I'll be using it to get 50K words out on my blog-novel (no need to spam it here, I spam my own thread enough already).

If anyone else from SC is working on a NaNo, I figured we could use a thread to support each other. SO post here and let us know!

Kita, from what I saw on the NaNoWriMo site, yes. It's a contest to write 50,000 words within the month of November and must be completed by the end of November.

I wasn't planning on trying to do this myself, but it is intriguing and I'm wondering if maybe I should try just for the fuck of it.

I'm going to go figure out how many words per day that comes down to.


ETA: Comes out to about 1,667 per day. (Technically it's 1,666.66~)

Honestly, even just typing a paragraph of nonsense is enough to get going.

One piece of advice I have, though, is always stop at a point in the middle of a sequence where you know exactly what is happening. If you finish a scene, starting the next one can be just as daunting as a blank page.

Note this doesn't work for everyone, as some people can't remember what the idea they abandoned was.

The goal is to write the 50K words in one month, but many people's novels go longer. I wrote book 2 of my series for NaNo a couple years ago, and wrote 80K in the month, and another 40K after to finish the actual story.

I am planning an epic novel about two Russian peasants in the time of the Civil war who after serving time as officers with Nestor Makhno, are abducted by aliens just before Trotsky has them assassinated, whereupon they end up embroiled in a massive interstellar war, but are victims of an alien weapon which sends them back in time, to stone age Mesopotamia, where they end up founding Sumerian civilisation.

I'm thinking I may try doing this, maybe. For now, I have to go play DJ Hero 2 for an hour or so.

No idea what I'd write about, probably just start making something up as I go. But I looked up what 1700 words looked like and it looks easily do-able per day.

So I moped and moped all day long over not getting started, until I had a bright idea for an opening line and opened up OpenOffice at 11:30. 3 hours later I have 1377 words, and a good first chapter. A good first chapter for what, I'm not quite sure yet, but it has a Roman numeral "I" at the top, centered, and it has a definite ending, so I'm assuming it's Chapter One. We'll see what it turns into as the days go on, but for a start, well...it's a start.

Thanks for the kick, kita

I thought about doing this. I really want to write. But I just can't force myself to sit down and write. I'm not sure if it's a self-confidence issue about my writing or what, I just keep putting it off.

I have about umpteen thousand book/movie ideas and none of them are manifest in a manuscript. Writing takes an enormous amount of time and energy, and I just can't spare it right now, as sad as that makes me.

Not now that I just found out about it. If I'd known about it ahead of time and given myself some time to get psyched about it, maybe.

Awesome start, man. Keep it up!

I pushed out about 3200 words yesterday (but I was already warmed up and mid-story, that helped). I'm not entirely blog-happy with everything I wrote in the current chapter, so I might back-burner it and start over in as far as the posting it online is concerned. But words are words!

Yes. I did it last year and started in yesterday and ended up writing more than 2,000 words the first day.

Only 48,000 to go.

I'm about to commit a NaNoWriMo atrocity...and actually delete 300 words I've written. I guess technically I can put them in an "appendix" and still get credit for them, but that seems like cheating.

They're just too campy for my story, and they're distracting me. One of my main rules of life is to not be afraid to cut my losses.

Spent a lot more time today, and finished with just over 3340 words at 12:30 AM. The website still considers me behind, but I'll eventually make up the extra half hour. Still have no idea where my story is going, but I figure the characters will tell me as they develop.

I still haven't started on doing this and may end up never getting around to it in time... but I'm still thinking I may try to see if my ass has anything interesting to pull from it. Congrats to those of you who have started in on this!

Dakota, if you write about 2,000 words every day, you could still do this!

I'm running at nearly 3k right now. I had hoped to get farther last night but election nights are the equivalent of the super bowl for me, so I was way too distracted.

My GF is being a bit of a task master about it, too. She wants to read it. I'm not sure she realizes what she's in for.

And fuck is it hard to not go back and edit. I change point of view about 10 paragraphs in and keep fighting the urge to go back.

God, I hear that. Thankfully, I both type quickly, and create quickly enough that I can go back through it and revise as needed...which is good, since these are going on my blog fairly quickly, I think.

My general process hasn't changed since NaNo started, only my volume. I write a chapter. I read it aloud to my GF, wherein I find at least four or five spots where the writing is REALLY awkward. I revise as I read (bless her patience), and then I post. Only the posting part is delayed during NaNo thus far.

Well, after an explosion of words, I'm suddenly up to 5800, and apparently my characters are leaning towards murder mystery. Should be an interesting ride

Man, November has gotten my writing juices flowing something crazy. I hit 8000 words tonight, and after an hour or so of work tomorrow, I'll have TWO chapters which aren't yet posted to my blog.

Of course, one of those will be posted tomorrow night, negating the above, but hey.

It is, however, really hard to keep up that pace for very long. I'm at about 10,500 words, but the last day and a half of trying has been a slog.

How is everyone else doing?

10077 right now. I was a little ahead going into yesterday, but my job kicked my ass and I didn't write last night. I'm going to try for another 3k tomorrow.

Oh, and my piece is a mystery of sorts, so when I feel like I'm losing the thread I have the main character go over recent developments in his mind.

Had a busy couple days, intended to make it up over the weekend, and ended up sleeping today away save for a 3 hour karate seminar this morning. I'm just over 7000, but I'll catch up

I made an attempt to start this project....... so far I have the following...

"Ok I'm going to sit and write a novel now but I'm not sure which one of the ideas that's floating around in my brain should manifest itself into a storm or words."

I stared at that for about 30 minutes, while I got baked, hoping that would help like it does when I'm stuck with my music.... I guess weed doesn't affect my creative writing channels the same.

On crap. I COMPLETELY forgot about your post Spacey... while I was just writing the opening to my story I'm going to try to write in time... somehow. (Although, I've started with a premise that is a little daunting to think of writing... so I may scrap it and start over)

To illustrate what I'm referring to, Chapter 1:

Quote:
Bonus points if you know this one. A man walks into a bar and sees a few people there. He orders a beer and drinks it. He leaves the bar and waits outside. Then some drunk comes out and asks him, “Hey man, whash you doin’?”

Then the first guy goes, “Ruining your night.”

Isn’t that fuckin’ hysterical?! I love that one. As a matter of fact I do it myself every now and again. I love the look on their face when it goes from “what do you mean?” to “WHAT THE FUCK?!?” as I go from a pat on the back to a crack of the neck.

Good night drunk man.

Is it too late to start?

It's never too late to start, Oryx! You just have to get a higher word count out per day, but it's still feasible. Even in a worst-case scenario, you started writing a NOVEL!

Go for it!

This user agrees. But then, who wouldn't, right?

Alrighty then. I've got tomorrow off. Trout will be upstairs lawyering. I'll be downstairs pretending to vacuum or something (our vacuum doesn't actually work.) I've had an idea mulling around for a few years.

What's the website?
