Just thought that I’d give everyone a quick NaNoWriMo update.
I’ve successfully written over 20300 at the writing of this post. I have about 30000 left to complete this novel. Symria is progressing well. I’ve honestly become totally obsessed and focused about this story. The story is slowly taking shape, and I am inserting more elements of the Symrian Mythos that I need. I keep a notebook with me at all times to write down ideas as they come to me. I’ve dreamt about the story and found new ideas. I’ve been at work and had new ideas. I like typing out the things I’ve written down by hand. It gives you the time to rewrite and edit things. I’ve also done a lot of research over the last few days. I wanted to have about 30000 by tonight. We’ll see how things go later. Right now, things are really good. There is a lot of editing needed in certain parts and minor rewrites, such as the prologue and the first interlude, but all in all, I’m pretty happy.
Things are really flowing along nicely. I think that by the end of this week, I’ll feel comfortable enough with what I’ve written to post a few initial chapters. I’m planning on including a Dramatis Personae in the beginning as well as the crypto zoological beastiary. If you are taking part in NaNoWriMo, I’d love to hear about your progress. I’ll probably spend the week posting a few tidbits of the story that I’m writing. I’m glad I chose this one. It’s been a while since I’ve written this type of story and I’m enjoying it a lot.
As I’ve noticed before, creativity in one area leads to creativity in another. This is actually the 55th post of the month of November 2007.
