National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)#1
Posted: 10/13/07 at 11:13am
I'm seriously considering giving NaNoWriMo a try this year, even though I have absolutely nothing to write about. Maybe it's time for me to use my long-windedness to work toward some sort of goal.
About NaNoWriMo
I starred in a short film called Magnetic Personality. Check it out!

there was a thread about this, but I guess it disappeared. I participated last year, and it was life-changing for me. I'm doing it again this year, and can't wait. this is such a great idea for a procrastinator like me.

my new friend jordangirl made a thread, but a bunch of new threads were deleted because of some technical issue. :P

I usually forget to do this and I'm not even sure I'll go through with it since everything is so hectic right now but maybe doing this will help me balance out a bit. Looks like fun!

I don't have any clue what I'm writing about... I think I'll probably just write in first person with the voice of a character... Perhaps in a Bridget Jones sort of style... And then just let it go wherever it goes.

Hmmm, I started a short story awhile back with a plot I was pretty excited about and then I completely forgot about it and never got past the third page. So maybe I can expand that into something longer.

I just might try that this month. I've been looking for a way to get back into writing since I graduated. (Yep, I've been searching long and hard for 7 months. re: National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)) But, I might come up with a plot and outline this sucker tonight.
I have NEVER met Cheyenne Jackson. I have never hung out with him in his dressing room, he did not tweet me, he never bought me a beverage, and he mostly certainly didn't tickle me. . .that is all.

I just finished my second piece. It is titled:

Personal Hygiene

gayer than laughter, am I. And who wouldn't be, after seeing Cheyenne in those tight black shorts?

I've been playing with my characters for almost a year... They popped up during last year's attempt. I'm really excited to expand their stories (and in some cases learn more!)

Incidentally, I wouldn't worry too much about not having a plot now. One of my best friends won a couple of years ago when a new idea popped up for her at like 11:58 on Halloween. She scrapped her other plans and went with the new flow. It worked for her.

yeah. in a good way, nanowrimo values quantity over quality. they set the 50,000 goal so that you may write about 1666 words per day, just to give it perspective. they just encourage you to WRITE WRITE WRITE, and if an idea or premise comes up, even better. most ideas come from free-writing anyway.

I should try as I've been needing something to jump start my writing.

It's fun. And if nothing else, you've got however many words you managed. Last year I didn't break 17K...because I wasn't prepared for what I'd have at school paperwork-wise. But it's 17K I wouldn't have had if I hadn't tried, and it's a good start to something I do want to continue one day.

NaNoWriMo has my name all over it.

I'm thinking of expanding an haiku I composed into an epistolary novel about a widow who fears she'll never love again.

Vivica Yoblanski looked up from the row of seeds she was planting and into the face of a handsome stranger. She realized this was the first time she had thought a man handsome since Grant had died 23 and a half months earlier.

I'm practically chomping at the bit to start writing. Can't wait! I may actually have a decent idea this time.
