Guess what... it's that time of year again!

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby CriminalMinds on Mon Oct 14, 2013 5:46 am

It's NaNo! Or National Novel Writing Month!

30 days.
50,000 words.

Here

I entered in 2009, 2010, and 2011. In 2009 and 2010 I wrote 50,000 words within the month, in 2011 I got to 450 words. I wasn't prepared then and I just didn't have the time. And then in 2012 I didn't have the motivation or the preparation really. But this year I am back for the challenge and starting to prepare. I know I can do it when I'm up to it because in 2009 I was at 50,000 in 15 days and kept my own stats. I even wrote 11,000 words in one day! Once again I am up for the challenge!

Can we do it?

Who's also preparing to do NaNo this year?

Ha. At least you time to sleep!

Have you given any thought to your story yet? I only ask because I noticed your user name is Criminal Minds I’m assuming for the TV show. I’m going to base my writing off an RP I ran when I first got here called Cartwright Falls. It was a Twin Peaks inspired thing. Anyway outside of writing I have a Bachelors degree in Criminology and am studying for my masters in security and risk management so I’m hoping to inject some of my academic leanings into the story. People tell me I’d enjoy Criminal Minds.

Of course it’s very easy saying this now, on the 15th of November I’ll have probably quit in floods of frustrated tears.

Daaw!

I have got my story planned. Three years in the making and then I hit a writers block so it's a good time to get out of it now. It's a romance story. >_> I'm a hopeless romantic at heart. I do also love my crime, hence Criminal Minds as my name and from the TV show xD

I was going to go into Criminology for my degree, then I went with my first love, zoology. Funny how now that I have my degree, I've gone and done a diploma as a paralegal secretary xD

I have my A and B for the story, but like usual I currently have no way to connect them together, which is always the problem :(

Entered.

I've had a supernatural type story idea in my head for a while, a sort of answer to all the currently popular 'human female meets supernatural thing' storylines that tend to annoy me with their lack of substance.
The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honour to meet you and you may call me Vit.
