NaNoWriMo- Day 1

Today was the start of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). And I actually started writing my novel. I have a bit of head start (not in the writing department, because that would be against the rules) because I've been mulling this story idea over in my head for some time now. I even mapped out some of the characters (very rough mapping, I might add, mostly names and relationships) and figure out a tenuous plot line. Tenuous, because the main climax of the plot line is missing. Basically my main characters go on a mission/adventure to find the main characters missing sister, but I have no clue what is going to happen between point A (sister is missing) to point B (sister is found). But I guess that's part of the fun of this whole thing. Letting the characters just tell their story instead of forcing the story with too much plot mapping.

Well, the first writing session went surprisingly well. Then again, it's easy to have your characters be born and start to grow up to a point where they can actually direct the story instead of just being a part of it. So that's where I am right now. At four years of age. Word Count follows...

Words: 2,074/50,000


  1. What will your novel be about? Or will you be revealing it as you go? How fun.

  2. Hi Anna! I was going through my "followers" list today and came across your name. For some reason I guess I had neglected to come over and follow you back sooner,I apologize for my tardiness. I was very pleasantly surprised however to see that you are also doing the Novel November, I am to! I am already behind, but that's what weekends are for right?

    How is your coming?

  3. Did you finish? I didn't even get started.... I envy you even your START!
