It’s official. I am a NaNoWriMo participant! I’ll try to write a novel in a month! Well, how does this sound? Frankly I am terrified and in day 1, I had so many things to do that I wrote only 634 words. I need to try harder, right? Let me talk about it a little.
I learned about NaNoWriMo last year, but I wasn’t ready to do something like that, so I erased it from my mind. This year though, I felt more confident, more optimistic. Plus, I love the challenge.
I don’t know if I can make it, but it will be an interesting month.
So, what I am writing. I’m sure some of you remember that I was writing a sequel forDivided, titled Damaged. It’s a book I was struggling to write for months because I wasn’t concentrated. I was distracted and as a result I was not doing a good job. Even though there were some days I was really excited and happy, something was bothering me. So, I decided to delete it and start from scratch.
I have a small idea of what I am about to write, how the story will be formed, but that’s okay. I’ve learned to trust my characters. I’ve done it before and I’ll do it again. I hope this time the result will be better.
So, that’s it. I erased my novel and I’m willing to write it again, differently this time, faster. It will be a hell of an adventure, but if I make it, Damaged will be written, and I will be flying up in the air.
The race has begun and I hope I can write more words today. Good luck to all NaNoWriMo participants.
Let our imagination guide us this month.
