NaNoWriMo Approacheth

Only 24 days, 4 hours, 26 minutes, and 45 seconds until NaNoWriMo! 40 seconds 39, 38, 37...
I'm not starting a new novel which, technically, is against the rules... but since I know the rules, I'm allowed to break them, right? Oh, that only has to do with writing conventions and correct grammar?
Anyway, I'm going to be (hopefully!) finishing the fantasy story that I started writing at the beginning of the year. For a long time I thought I was very far from being halfway finished but now, I think I'm closer than I thought! I'd estimate there is about 30,000-50,000 words of story left. And I'm hoping to get those 30,000-50,000 written during NaNoWriMo. It will be tough, however, since I am writing this story out by hand in notebooks. I'm only eight pages away from finishing the Beatles notebook. I'm going to finish those eight pages and then write in a new, blue, 5-subject notebook bought especially for NaNoWriMo. It's pretty thick and I don't anticipate having to use the whole thing; the rest of the notebook will be used for world building, character building, and a very, very detailed outline in the future.
I can't wait! November is my favorite month.

Are any of you doing NaNoWriMo? Are you writing by hand or typing on the computer? What will you be writing?

Live long and prosper!


  1. Oh, I don't think I could do NaNoWriMo. Go Teen Writers 100 for 100 is enough for me; I'm kind of a slow writer...but good luck to you!

  2. Hey again Abbey! I'm probably going to do Nano if I can catch up with school first. I'd really like to get Scrivener, so that'll be a drive to get more words down in my story.
