Its November 1st finally! The times that a lot of writers joining the challenge for NaNo WriMo 2011 has been looking forward to. Its my first time doing this challenge and I have no idea if I can tough it out.
I decided to participate in this challenge amidst my crazy busy schedule, so I really hope to find the motivation. Perhaps advertising it now to everyone that I know, whether friend or acquaintance or family will keep my pride going and I’ll work really hard to finish it. Over the last 2 weeks, I’ve been making various outlines. Started so many and brainstormed so many ideas, just now is the big question, how to make it flow well enough? No matter what form of writing, thats always been my problem, finding a way to make good transitions.
I’m not a writer, although I always enjoyed writing. I’m hoping this challenge will motivate me to challenge myself and exceed even my own expectations of myself. So to say, I don’t expect to ever have a novel published, its simply enjoying the process of writing a novel. The whole idea of opening up my schedule and making time to write a 50,000 word novel. I’ve been honestly looking forward to it. Even my laptop decided that it would be ready to come home all empty and repaired last night ready for me to write this whole month to my heart’s content. I spent all last night setting up the computer so that it would be ready. As midnight approached and the updates for Vista was endless, it felt like maybe it was a sign to not do it. to write 50,000 words by hand is something I haven’t done ever, but unfortunately I’m not the type that gives up that easily. I worked 2 weeks over so many outlines that I don’twant to give up just yet.
So here I am. After lunch break and I have started writing and at a word count of about 300 words. The beginning of it is totally not what I had outlined but who knows, maybe it will bring better things. Lets hope when I get home tonight, I will be able to write another 1000 words or more.
Inspiration! Please stay with me this November!
Good luck to all for the NaNoWriMo 2011!
P.S. To all that read my blog, I will probably be participating more in Weekly Photo Challenges now rather than writing. Do check in and give me some comments on the pictures! There should be another one coming soon for last week’s challenge once my laptop is up and running again!
