Yes, it's ANOTHER post about NaNoWriMo. They seem to be floating all around the blogosphere, eh?
But first...some news.
Star-Dreamer has opened up the voting on the First Chapter contest on her blog, the Pen and the Parchment--which means ye can go read them and vote on your favorite one. Mine is up as well...so if ye can guess which one it is, then go ahead and read it!
Millard Shining Light is also having a giveaway of the awesome book 'Beyond the Reflection's Edge' by Bryan Davis, a most excellent author.
NaNoWriMo has begun.
Writers everywhere are scrambling to the NaNo website (which is currently flooded with users and extremely slow), updating their words counts, and beginning to write a 50,000 word novel in ONE MONTH. Pick up your quill pens, folks! It's going to be a bumpy and exhilirating ride.
I myself am beginning to write my next novel already--'The Book of Shaldu'. It's a new work, one that isn't affiliated with any of my other novels. It is, however (surprise!) a Christian fantasy novel.
Time to get out the flaming pen again, folks! >_> Hopefully it will catch fire again and burn brightly...but right now *yawn* I am very tired with only a hundred words written in 'The Book of Shaldu'. *sigh* What happened to the five-thousand word passion that fueled me to finish my novel earlier? :P
I already show symptoms for NaNo rush, though. Wanna know what they are?
-Beating my head against the wall
-Eating copious amounts of sugar-infused items
-Writing (though, regrettably, there has been little of this)
-Staring into the fire
-Wasting an hour of my time trying (and not succeeding) to access the NaNo site
-Staring into the sky
-Staring at the blank computer screen
-Wondering if anyone is going to read this post
Aye, I am done. :P There may be a lapse in blogging, readers--just a reminder. >_> And much of the blogging you will get shall most likely be reading will be incoherent babbling about NaNo. Be prepared for the worst, readers.
And keep me accountable! I MUST reach 50,000 words!!
Which reminds me...one of my traits (I hesitate to say 'virtues') will work well with me for this. At one time it may get me in trouble, but also it helped me finish my trilogy--one of the sole traits that kept me going in that time. Can you guess what it is?
Stubbornness. Absolute stubborness. And perhaps that stubborness will accomplish this 50,000 word goal.
With that note, I shall leave and procrastinate some more. *sigh* What happened to "Throw procrastination into a pit?" I'd be much obliged if ye'd give me some help on this...
