Plaisirs Circonstanciels

Il lui joue un tour,
Après elle tombe en amour
Il la fait monter chez elle,
Et la fait monter au ciel,
Plaisirs circonstanciels.

Plaisirs Circonstanciels, Stéphane Bass (1992)

Here is a quick translation:

He plays a trick on her
Then she falls in love
He takes her up to her place
And brings her to heaven (implying that they make love)
Circumstantial pleasures.

Symria And NaNoWriMo

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.

And So It Begins… NaNoWriMo That Is!

A quick logo I created today for my Facebook profile. I took the photo in Phuket, Thailand.

Well, it’s begun!

I’m really excited. I’ve been writing throughout the day and I have been able to write almost 2000 words. That’s pretty cool. I’m still on it right now. I’m wondering how I will manage to draw, write and blog at the same time. Oh, and there’s a little thing called work as well that I do every week day, from 7AM to 7:40PM!

Here is a link to my NaNoWriMo profile.

My Thoughts On NaNoWriMo And Symria

I’ve enrolled in NaNoWriMo this year. Here is my profile. I’ll be writing 50K words on Symria, The Land of Dreams. It’s a daunting task, but after the stress from all of this year, I feel pretty motivated. On top of that, I look forward to finishing and continuing my other stories. I find synergy in writing. This often leads to writing other pieces.
