Now, I’m not the type to do this, and I don’t suggest that anyone else who is doing NaNoWriMo do the same, especially if this is your first time, but I’m going to officially throw in the towel for NaNoWriMo 2019, and I have a couple of reasons why.Read more
It’s time for another character aesthetic from my NaNoWriMo novel! A couple days ago I introduced you to one of the main characters, Cerah, and today we’re doing the second main pov character – Adin.
His aesthetic was significantly harder to put together, even though I know more about his personality and backstory. Trying to find the right pictures was a challenge. I think Cerah’s came together much faster. I spent hours toying with his, but I think I found a result that I’m okay with.Read more
With everything else I’m hoping to post this month, I also really wanted to share more of my nano novel (regardless of how poorly NaNo happens to be going this year).
A super easy (and visually interesting) way of doing that is with aesthetics, so I figured I’d make some to accompany a simple description of my main characters.
And if you want to know more about my story (and maybe check out the project’s mood board), I’ve already posted a brief synopsis to get you better acquainted with what I’m writing this month.
Today we take a look at one of the two main pov characters – Cerah.Read more
My first week has not gone smoothly, and I honestly can’t figure out why.
Maybe trying to blog every day, finish my novella AND meet my goal for NaNoWriMo was a bit too ambitious. As of writing this, I count only my actual nano novel towards my 50k goal, even though I’m writing a ton of blog posts and trying to work on my novella at the same time.
I’m getting a bit of decision paralysis, and I’m also not enjoying my ‘candy project’ as much as I thought that I would. I figured that enthusiasm would carry me a lot further through the draft than it is, and I just wanted a palette cleanser – something new and different to what I’ve worked on in the past.Read more
I figure it’s about time I actually tell you what I’m writing about during November, huh?
I think I mentioned this before, but I’m writing an adult high fantasy novel for NaNoWriMo, only I’m doing it a little differently from most. Essentially I want to see if I can write a solid story with a fleshed-out fantasy world in a much shorter format. I’m talking a completed novel in about 50,000 words. Which seems like a lot, and it’s technically the goal for NaNoWriMo, but it’s not very much for a fantasy novel.
I expect it to be around 17 to 20 chapters, and I’m just trying to have fun with it, really. I wanted it to be a stress-free and fun sort of candy-project. Just fun for me to write, and a way for me to practice and play around with ideas I wouldn’t normally attempt. Of course, I don’t know how to have fun anymore and I’m taking it way too seriously, but I’ll save that for tomorrow’s week one wrap up.Read more
