I swear, I’ve tried to update this blog every day. And every day I run out of words.
Anyway! I accepted the gauntlet for the National Novel Writer’s Month. I had so much fun in June and August, I’m back again for the marathon. The real Nano is really cool, with celebrity pep talks (well, celebrity if you read books), massive forums and lots of really cheerful people.
And so many great ideas! One lady talked about her story where people can store memories in jam. So there’s a huge demand for this jam.
Another girl was asking advice for how to make a steampunk version of Beauty and the Beast, where the whole castle was a clockwork construct.
Another person wanted ideas for why an alien race would suck all the life-force out of Earth.
Man, I get inspired just hanging around the forums.
Anyway, my zombie story is going smoothly, and I have another story waiting in the wings if I get stuck. Actually I need some crazy-bad stuff to happen to my heroes, so I need to brainstorm tonight.
Still using Pretentious Title’s technique for writing 10k words a day. I only have two hours in which to write, so I’m not writing 10k, obviously. But on a good night I can get 2k, and I do make my 1667 quota every night. (Well, almost every night.) Nano’s sure good for accountability. 🙂
