For seven years the forums had at least a passing interest in the even known as NaNoWriMo. The chain remained unbroken, passed along bearer to bearer. And then the force known as Resistence reared its ugly head and the Fellowship of the Writers was dissolved. But now a new threat looms over Matazone and once again the brave Writers must take up arms against it.

See that? That's the kind of crap I'll be churning out next month. I've been questing for party members on IRC already and now I'm putting the call to arms on digital paper. It's real, folks. And it's here.

A year was missed? Shameful!

Are you sure we didn't just tack 2011 onto the end of 2010?

Not sure in the slightest. I just searched topic titles and took my information from there.

Oh man. Oh man. It's the first year since EVER that I have a November without the evil dragons of 30hr/wk school + 20 hr/wk work + 20 hr/wk volunteering eating my taaaaaaaiiiiim! In fact, I'll spend most of November awkwardly moving into a tiny Spanish town where I do not know a soul. If that is not primo writing-a-novel circumstances I do not know what are!

*unsheathes sword*

I will join this quest.

Huzzah! Good luck with the dragons!

And yes, that does sound like premium writing territory you're moving into there. How come?

Hmm. Last year was also the first time since about 2005 that I didn't participate.

I may join in after all. Maybe. I'm tempted. But I have so much editing of past NaNo attempts to do! And I'm actually doing it for a change, instead of moving on to write other stuff. But I do have other things that I really want to write. But I learned long ago that if I keep moving on to the next story and the next before I polish the first one, I'll never really complete any of them. And NaNo always leaves me wanting to hide from writing for at least a decade. Hmmm.

But I kinda want to do it.

Decisions, decisions...

Come midnight I'll be in bed with a pen and a pad. I've actually done planning.

Day three now. I'm behind two days, but I've got faith I can make it up if I defeat Resistance for today. I started a blog where I'm posting everything I write and also discussing the daily process. I'm going against everything in me and am actually sharing. It's scary.

Oh, bother.

I'm sitting at around 13,000 words, and now it's getting to the bit where I'm going to have to start writing out the more difficult scenes.

*Sigh*

Her dignity shone so bright like a light on a hill
and she burned for me, no other man came near her flame.
Bad country songs - the deafening twang of the rich white kid blues.
You can own the strange, but the lights and glares will not make you real.

I am at 10k. I am full of suck. But I am not full of quit!

What makes the scenes difficult?

And I am no closer to the end. I will fail NaNoWriMo, but this will be published if I have to burn it all to the ground to get it done.

I am nowhere near 50k. BUT. Writing this month has made me realize I need to sit down and do it regardless of whether I think the idea is good enough or not. For the first time I've stuck with something for longer than ten pages out of stubbornness! Hooray!

Vic, you never update anymore. D:


--------------------
Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldnít be here if stars hadnít exploded, because the elements - the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life - werenít created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. So, forget God. The stars died so that you could be here today. ~Lawrence Krauss
