I completely missed October for any updates on my blog! I’ve been super busy with work and home life but… I’ve started NaNoWriMo!!! As of this post I’m just under 8500 words! How crazy is that?
I maybe have already said this but I’m attempting something new with this project. For this story I’m attempting to write it all in third-person perspective. Normally, I write in first-person because I really like to live through the eyes of my characters. However, I wanted to try something new and challenge myself to do it differently this time. Hopefully, it doesn’t come back to bite me in the end. It’s definitely a different feeling but I’m liking my characters and trying to build them and the world they see as best as I can at this stage.
It’s been a while since I’ve worked on anything new and I don’t like to plan too much out before hand. I guess I’m a pantser in that way. I really enjoy seeing things unfold, not knowing whats going to happen next. However, it’s already led to an entirely unplanned new main character coming into the story. She just popped up in a scene with my main protagonist and jumped into the storyline. How fun is that!?
The whole thing has been fun so far! I’m trying to stay active on Twitter with updates and make new writing buddies both there and on NaNo’s website. There are so many awesome people in the world, I wish them all luck in completing NaNoWriMo.
Anyways back to work. If I could write novels like I ramble in blog posts I’d have that 50k words done in no time at all.
P.S. I updated my website to make it look a little more professional, including redrawing my avatar.
