11:08 am - Almost that time again!

serpentgoddess
I'll be doing a fantasy story about an RPG character's history. I just need to do a little more worldbuilding, some universe-building, and hopefully come up with an outline.

I've written 5000 words of it so far by the seat of my pants, and I have no clue what happens next. (Yes, I know that whatever I write before Nov doesn't count for the word count. I just want to write the story.) Last time I had no clue, the story stayed unwritten for a month.

How do you break through plot snags... those places where the story did something you weren't expecting and you have no clue what to write next?

current mood: excited

6:44 am - announcement

bardiphouka
heretowhere Is a new community for writers and for those who wish to help writers. Are you stuck? (we will not talk here about the notebook full of opening lines I have). Do you want opinions? Or do you need to know that pertinent fact without which you cannot go forward?

On the other hand, do you like playing critic? Or showing up your vast amount of trivial knowledge? Or perhaps you just have a piece of trivia you think would make a good story. If any of the above is you, then feel free to join.

1:54 pm - nano monthly meetup

exsanguinated
hi folks.

i'm the co-liaison for toronto and we had such a great group this year we have found ways to continue to occasionally spend time with eachother until next nov.

here's hoping you can make some use out of this meetup:


registering with meetup.com is free. it's a great service to meet people on a variety of topics. nanowrimo is just one of them.

congrats on nov being over. see you next year, or perhaps at a nanomonthly meetup.

spread the word!

2:22 pm - In case you were wondering

bardiphouka
Yes it can be done..although I have realised that at close to 74k words I have barely begun the novel in its finished form.

Is anyone else having trouble sticking to a topic? I've never written lengthy fiction before, so maybe it's just me. I've written about 8,000 words so far, so i think i'm doing okay by word count, but only a couple thousand really seem to fit together, and it's all pretty random. help?

8:08 pm - More Wrimos!

sahva
Hey! Taking a little break from writing, I decided to join this NaNo community! :D

My novel mostly fits into the fantasy genre, but crosses the line into horror just a little.

I have 10,019 words right now and I'll be going back to writing as soon as I post this entry.

I lj-cut my chapters and post generally once a day. If you'd like to read my novel all you have to do is friend this journal. If you friend me I'll friend you back and probably check out your novel as well :D

Good luck everyone!

current mood: energetic

12:38 pm - HELP!

slackademic
I did about 500 words yesterday, and they didn't even work for me. I'm not used to writing lengthy prose at all, but I do work really well under assignments and writing excericises:
My plea to you all is this- does anyone have a good excercise or method to get themselves writing on topic- my novel is very free-form, so I don't have to stick too closely to an outline or anything, I just need to get myself started.
help me? please?

12:41 am - Building realistic characters

rosefoxwrites
(Hi all! I found this place doing a search for "nanowrimo" as an interest. Nice to meet everyone. I'm 25, and the last time I wrote a novel I was 9 and handwriting it; I assume it'll be easier this time around. In the interim I've written a handful of short stories and a lot of songs. I've also worked as a newspaper and fiction editor, among numerous non-writing-related jobs. My personal NaNo goal is 2000 words a day, and since I often exceed that in my regular journal, rosefox, I figure that won't be a problem; it's going to be much harder to step on my tendency to edit as I go. To learn more about me, check out that journal or keep an eye on this one.)

A friend pointed me to dailysoulsearch, where a question is posted every day to help you to think and learn about yourself. I started using it to help me develop realistic and well-rounded characters for my novel, and it's fantastic! Just thought I'd share that resource as a way of saying "hi". I look forward to seeing what everyone else has to share.

12:31 am - It's Over!

(cross-posted)

I feel like I should be uncorking champagne and singing "Auld Lang Syne" right about now. NaNoWriMo is officially over. I had an insane amount of fun, and I fully intend to do it again next year.

To those of you who finished, congratulations!! To those of you who did not, don't stop now, finish it anyway! :) I reached the quota a few days early, and in December and January, I fully intend to edit it and add in all of the parts I left out.

::starts singing "Auld Lang Syne" and getting weepy-eyed::

Goodbye, November 2002. You were one of the most interesting months in my life so far.

If anyone feels the need to procrastinate at this hour, would you mind visiting my novel (http://nanowrimomadness.blogspot.com) and maybe emailing me with comments?

I'd be happy to do the same for whoever wants some feedback.

Thanks!
