As I mentioned before, I wasn’t so sure about publishing my NaNoWriMo novel. However, I thought more about it and I shall be posting the chapters up on Wattpad. I have included the link so if you want to check it out then feel. I will warn you that it won’t be edited though I will do my best to have my grammar fixed and everything smoothed out. Hopefully, all those you enjoy the story and have thoughts on it, will leave a comment. I really want positive feedback and helpful criticism. Thanks to the awesome people of wattpad, I have many covers for my story. I need to work on my cast as well but I have some idea of who I want; though I’m not saying just yet. Y’all have to wait until the first chapter is published. Speaking of publishing, I will probably writing the story out on paper then transferring it to a word document. I’ll be switching between the two. I’ll try my hardest to post a chapter everyday but don’t quote me on it. I do have to attend college and it’s not easy balancing a job, school and writing. However, I will do my very best to do so this month.
NaNoWriMo is right around the corner.
At first I was really nervous about writing something without a rough outline but now there is nothing much that worries me. I have been able to plan out some events that can happen in my story.Which is great because quite honestly, I need some plan to follow when writing. I’m not very good at improvising and last time I tried that, it didn’t go so well. I had to completely rewrite those scenes and the ripples that came afterward had to be changed. I’m not saying it is a bad thing to improvise. It is NaNoWriMo after all but I do like to have an idea of where I want to go. It makes me think about subplots that can happen in the meantime to add depth in my story. On a side note, my character list is made and I don’t think I need to add too much characters to it. The great thing is that anything can happen and the list can grow.
I still have to think about the overall theme but that should be simple enough. They won’t “in your face themes” but there is some themes going on. I only have to figure out what those will be.
This year I decided to document my progress through National Novel Writing Month. The goal is to write 50,000 words in thirty days. The task seems daunting at first but it is possible. I myself have accomplished such a task – two years ago. I did participate last year but college comes first and I couldn’t sacrifice my grades. This year I shall try again and hopefully be able to finish.
During the month of November, I will be typing up posts with daily posts on my progress. These posts will probably be a few short lines unless I have something major to say. i.e. a huge scene, an epiphany, need of support, etc. Later on during the last weeks of October, I shall post up the title of my book. I have thought about posting up the rough draft of the story on wattpad.com. I’ll let y’all know if I do that.
I hope everyone can support me in my effort to accomplish this task.
