Archive for ‘NaNoWriMo’

November 19, 2011


Today is going to be a very long day. Aside from a deadline, I also have activities at the kids’ school to attend to. The thing is that apparently the activity will take up a whole day, which means the rest of the world can kill me now. I just learned about it, and …. $#!@$!^!@$#$@

My friend says I am overly dramatic, fatalistic and all those other –ics, but that is okay. I guess we all need some color in our lives.

Like what I said in my previous post, I decided to join the NaNoWriMo and attempted to write my own novel. The sad thing is that I have been so busy lately that I was able to write for the first day, and then stopped completely! November 1 had a flourish of ideas, thoughts, and fire enough to light up a whole room…. a little exaggerated, but you get my drift. I felt like I could really DO IT! And then the whole shebang started to go up in flames and I am left with no more additions to the story, and it is now November 19. Still, I think I can make that story come alive later on.

Maybe I will post the story here, like a running update. But I am quite shy and I fear that it would be butchered to death. Truth be told, it was in gradeschool that I started writing stories, and it was there that I left my *cough* talent *cough*.

Maybe just for fun, I will post the story here. Unedited.


Good morning, everybody! I wish you all a productive and happy day ahead of you. I wish your hands move like the wind and churn out work like you are SuperProductive!

Stretching my legs, and NaNoWriMo

I have a lot of writing to do. I do. That is why I am stretching my fingers and legs to somewhat get ready for the writing that I need to do. Good thing I was able to get some new opps, so I can still put food on the table after I say farewell to the place where I worked for over 2 years. It is okay, I will survive.

I also joined this November event called NaNoWriMo or National Novel Writers Month. Although I’ve never written any novels or done really story writing, I always wondered what it would be like to actually finish a story – or novel. Unfortunately, I still do not have a storyline, or a list of characters or even an outline of what’s going to happen. But maybe I will get around to come up with a rough sketch of what I am going to do.

Tomorrow is the first of November, by the way, and that is the official start of NaNoWriMo. Wish me luck!

Sometimes I wish I had the writing prowess of my friend, Mic at the Broken Coffee Cafe. She has a talent for weaving stories and an imagination to boot. I, on the other hand, am challenged. I do think I have an imagination, but I have yet to let things fly free.

We will see where this goes.

Anyway, I have words to weave, letters to string, and work to be done.

Catch you later folks!
