NaNoWriMo Prep!

We are fast approaching November and National Novel Writing Month! Who else is super excited to push themselves to reach that goal of 50,000 words? I know I am!

I had started a story that I was writing on and off over the passed year, thinking that I might complete it during NaNoWriMo, but as it turns out, I had an entirely new idea come to me a little while ago.

The idea came to me after watching a video about a theory regarding a video game series I play. The person was going on and connecting a bunch of stuff that was happening, and for the game, it kind of made sense. But within the theory sprouted a new idea for a story. I ran it by one of my friends and we discussed it a fair bit. I started making notes and formulating different ideas. Then I put all of this into an outline….a very long outline. The chapters may be short, but there is a lot that happens I’ve realized…..and a fair bit of world building that I’ll be committing too. This MAY be my biggest undertaking since the last manuscript I finished (which is, in all honesty, still being edited (and I really need to get my ass in gear and actually spend more time editing it)).

Anyway, I’m sure I’m not the only one plugging away on their idea and outline for NaNoWriMo, and I hope the rest of you are enjoying all the prep work (or no prep work if that’s how you work best!).

I will try to update at least once a week during November, but with working three jobs and trying to get those 50,000 words written, I might have a bit of trouble posting as often as I’d like.

We’re almost there though!!!!


About rachelsparling

I'm a writer working on a manuscript for a novel. I love to write and I've been doing it for 17 years. Through several story ideas I have figured out what works and what doesn't, and I've learned a lot about myself and my writing style. I love to read and escape to many different worlds. I've also learned a lot about good writing and bad writing through both reading a lot and acquiring an education in English literature, and becoming an ESL teacher. I enjoy filming and photographing all sorts of things and putting together short documentaries and videos. I love my camera.
