NANO MADNESS, 1667 AND COUNTING

I'm officially a NaNoWriMo player this year... I think I'm slightly insane. I'm digging my own grave. I'm actually writing long pieces which I've never done before. At least, there's something positive out of it.

Clueless is what I am... I don't know how the story is going to be. In fact, I'm just going to let the characters lead the way, and I'll follow. If they want to commit suicide, so be it.

Anyway, I've set up a separate blog somewhere around here to put it up once I'm sure that I've gone too far to abscond it...

Anyway, I hope to continue blogging as usual, but the internet connection at home has mysteriously ended... so I have to make do with what I can during break time at work, like now.

  5. That's a great way to write a nanobook (or, really, any other book). Characters are organic beings, not automatons on a page. You can try and force them into certain roles and actions, but if they're not what the characters want, you're going to have a hell of a time writing them. I approach any novel with only a bare-bones plot hook and a few scenes I want to include and go from there.

    Good luck, and stop by WatchWords, the support group I set up for nanowriters.
