Yes, the dreaded/highly anticipated NaNoWriMo is here! I've actually decided to take it seriously this year. The one time I attempted it before, I don't think I even made it to 3,000 words. But this year I'm gonna do it. I WILL MAKE IT TO 50,000. ᕦ(ò_óˇ)ᕤ
Anyway, it took me a while to choose which project I wanted to work on. One is a New Age novel that deals with religion and the anti-christ and all that junk. The other is a gritty Young Adult action story with lots of violence, drinking, and swearing. Naturally, I picked the latter. It's going to be 1st person present tense. It'll be a nice change from the project I've been working on, which is 3rd person past. I've actually been working on this story off and on since high school, but I've decided to start from scratch with it. It should be fun, since the tone's a lot darker than what I'm used to writing.
My goal with this story is to self-publish it as soon as possible. And then I'd like to take whatever I make on it, if anything, and put it towards studying in Japan for a semester.
So if you don't see anymore blog posts throughout November, now you know why.
Anyone else participating in NaNoWriMo?
