Re: NaNoWriMo 2011

I'm still in the 2000s. I have some catching up to do!

I'm doing it in a weird way this year. I'm writing some at home and some at work (my job is wicked boring), but I am not keeping them together. It's kind of fun. When I'm home, I can't reference the part I wrote at work, and when I'm at work, I can't see the part I wrote at home.

Re: NaNoWriMo 2011

I use google docs to keep it consistent.

I am not making good progress, but maybe the creativity bug has hit me in other ways. I wrote two songs last night (with lyrics) which is pretty good for me. One of them is really silly with the following sample verse chorus:

I feel like a chicken
I walk like a chicken
I cluck like a chicken
So why did I cross this road?

E-I-E-I-E-I-O
The farm is where I got to go
Old McDonald he’s got me
under his spell
Pretty much the verses are all silly things about me being an animal.

Re: NaNoWriMo 2011

I just broke 14,000..... Story is trekking along, though I ended up trashing a bunch of the original outline when I started writing on the 1st (which isn't a bad thing, what I have now is better I think ). It's a lot of work, but I'm really enjoying the process so far!!

Re: NaNoWriMo 2011

I decided on my third day of writing that the story wasn't a book but a movie, so I'm going to write a script instead this year.

Are you going for 50,000 words? Or the Script Frenzy rules?

Re: NaNoWriMo 2011

I'm going out of town for three days for work and will be bored out of my mind when I'm stuck at the hotel alone. I plan to do a lot of writing.

No idea what Script Frenzy is, but it certainly won't be 50,000 words. aiming for about 120 pages.

Script Frenzy is run by the same folks who put on Nanowrimo, the goal is 100 pages in 30 days over the month of April. I think I might give it a shot next year.

Also! Personal update: ----- Just clocked in 16,037 words .

Apparently in recognition of this effort, Amazon US currently has several e-books about writing available for free. You can see the list here, with links to each at Amazon.

Also, good luck to everyone who is participating!

Re: NaNoWriMo 2011

I'm, sadly, still at 0. It's like everything in life is conspiring to stop me from writing. I'm going to catch up this weekend and write like a madwoman!

^^^Don't feel bad; I'm still at zero, too.

Although I suspect you have vastly more legitimate reasons for being there than I have! (And by that, I mean my reason is pure and simple procrastination... )

I plan on catching up, too. No, honest...
