Hey guys! I am so deep into NaNoWriMo that I completely forgot about the blog! Sorry! Here goes 🙂
What I’ve Accomplished This Month
- Changing History: Calenhiril’s Search– 3 chapters posted
You know, this is really weird. I’ve been so focused on preparing for NaNo, I forgot I was going to have one more update post with Changing History on it. Wow. All my feels are reemerging. If you haven’t already, you can read about my feels in my blog post here.
Now I miss Boromir 😦
- Double The Baggins, Twice The Took– 4 chapters posted (1 chapter reposted), 1612 words written
I did way more work on this story than I anticipated this month. I looked over what I had coming up and realized… I really hated the way the chapters were structured. Really hated it. So I took the last chapter I’d written and completely redid it, changing the way everything was split and making me much happier 🙂 But it was a lot of work. Way more work than I wanted it to be. And now we’re at Beorn’s house and nearly everything I have has to be restructured and rewritten because it doesn’t make any sense. It’s going to be a disaster. But a disaster that can wait until after NaNo 🙂 Speaking of which!
- The Stars Are Fire (NaNoWriMo 2016)– outlining completed
I finished an actual outline! Like, with structure and thought put into it! Actually, what I did was take an outline of Hamlet from the internet, put it side-by-side with a blank document, and work my outline directly off of that, making changes as I went. It was… more difficult than I thought it was going to be, honestly. And the story is… harder to write than I anticipated. But I’m working on it! Hamlet in Space! And my male!Ophelia character is a precious neurotic cinnamon roll, I love him 🙂
What’s Coming Up in November
Obviously 😉 My goal this year is to, not just write the 50k words, but to actually finish this novel. I already have it broken up into scenes (thanks, outline!) and it looks like I need to finish two scenes every three days in order to finish by the end of November. We’re only a couple days into NaNo, but so far it looks like I’m on track for that to happen. We’ll see how good I’m feeling in a few weeks…
Is it bad that I already have ideas for writing The Tempest in space? That’s bad, right? 😛
And since apparently this is becoming a tradition, the cute animal of the month!
This is a pangolin!
He is a real-life pokemon, and he is also very cute 😀
Until next time! 😀

YAAASSS to Tempest in Space and also–PANGOLINS! I’ve actually created an alien species before based on pangolins! They’re not nearly as cute but they do have scales! I’ll show them to you on Monday at Writing Group. xD
I just keep thinking that Tempest would so easily translate to space! The only thing I even know for sure so far is that Ariel is a computer AI program that runs a small moon, but was abandoned until Prospero came. That’s literally it 😛
And YES, I NEED TO SEE PANGOLIN ALIENS!!! 😀
