NaNoWriMo!

    Okay, I know this is a little late for a NaNoWriMo post, but I joined it for the first time this year! My goal would be to write 50000 words, so far I've got 3534 words down, I am actually on schedule :) But that's a different thing than writing a good story. I feel like my story is too childish, the plot too stupid, whatever self-doubt you feel when you are writing a novel. The plot actually sounded really good in my head and on my notes, but when I started writing it, the magic's gone :( Of course I tried to hang on to it, maybe things will pick up soon... I hope.

   Anyway, I will be doing a lot of writing this month! Between the blog and NaNoWriMo and school, I don't know how fast I'll read, but I'll try to stick to the posting schedule, three reviews a week, I can do it! Also, my NaNo account name is Usada (linked to my pofile) (it's an old name that I used when I was a kid, I loved Anime back then...) If you guys want to, please add me as your writing buddy, I could use some support, thanks ;)





Have you guys ever joined NaNoWriMo? How does it feels like when you finished a novel? Do you have the same concerns I have when writing a novel? Like you're not sure if the voice of the narrator is too young, too old or the plot was too stupid? Comment below! I am off to write my daily dose of novel :P

  1. I did Nanowrimo last year, only got to 10,000 :/ I'm trying this year even though I haven't started yet. I have exactly the same worries but I keep it all out of my mind and just have fun-focus on the output and meeting that 50,000 word goal! Good luck!

    1. Good luck to you too! Let's work to our goals together ;) I am trying to do that too, since so many writing advice I've seen said the same thing, to just keep writing and don't look back. Thanks for the luck, I could use it ;)

  2. Same here! The magic is gone for me, too, and self-doubt is running rampant. Still, I think I'm doing good. Good luck!

    1. Yeah, I tried not to be too harsh on myself, so far I am still on schedule, I guess that count as good too in NaNoWriMo :P Good luck to you too! :)

  3. I did nanowrimo a couple years back and managed to finish my story. I did and still do think my story is way to amateur but at least I have something to work with. I really should get back to it...

    I think the idea behind nanowrimo is awesome - just keep writing! You won't have perfection but you will have accomplished something great! Good luck!

    1. Hmm, I guess it's hard not to self-judge. But you're right, the whole idea of NaNo is to keep writing. Thanks for the luck, I could use it ;) I've actually just written myself into a corner here :P

  4. All you can do is keep going! It's hard to battle that doubt, but reaching that goal always feels good.

  5. Hey,
    I'm follower 60! I'd love a follow back at http://thethingsyoucanread.blogspot.com and/or http://thewritingwhisperer.blogspot.com/. I am doing NaNoWriMo with my advanced English students and I am also working on it personally. I'm at 3,000 words and counting. I hope I can finish. I have no idea how it feels to finish since this is my first time participating. My advice to us all is just keep writing. Good Luck! Hope we both make it!
