'Nother Year, 'Nother NaNo

Just in case anyone was wondering, I'm behind in NaNoWriMo by 2,000 words. Am I worried about it? Not incredibly. In past years I thought I would die if I didn't reach the 50k by the 31st... this year it's important, but I think I'll survive if I should fail.

You know that outline I mentioned I had? Yeah, well, I completely decided not to use it and go with a novel I'd written the first year I did NaNo. Only, 1,000 words into that novel and I decided it needed a major overhaul.

So, I might have taken a complete fantasy novel and transformed it to a futuristickindofnormalbuthasrandomburstsoftechnologyyouweren'texpecting novel. No, that's not a technical term so don't quote me on it.

The point is, I've written a lot more this way then I think I ever would have if I'd decided to stick with the plots I had before. It's been awhile since I decided to write with no sort of anything planned, but amazingly enough pieces are coming together and I believe brilliance is in the making. (Just kidding, I'm not Charles Dickens)

Also, RainyMood is a gift from God.

K, bye.

(This post is brought to you by the girl who didn't get enough sleep last night due to the fact that she figured her alarm would go off at the wrong time and she would be late for work. Daylight Savings Time is dumb) (btw, I wasn't late) (part of me is glad about that because... well, I wasn't late, but the other part of me is kind of irritated because my alarm would have gone off and aroused me at the right time and I could have slept soundly) (Daylight Savings Time is dumb)


  1. Good luck!! I tend to always write without much of a plan/outline...just a more-or-less-vague idea of where the story will go :-)

  2. Rainy mood is most definitely a gift from God! :)

  3. The very best of luck to you, Georgie!

    I hope your novel continues to form into brilliance and NaNo goes smoothly for you.

    Also, RainyMood is probably the best thing that exists on the internet. It is my best friend during NaNo.
