NaNoWriMo 2018

Postby Ani-Mei » September 11th, 2018, 7:31 pm

It's nearly that time again, NaNo November is coming. What is everyone's plans for this year? Mine will be a sequel to last year's winning novel A Legacy of Silver because ideas are formulating two months early.

So I have a title page now for this year's NaNo:

Spoiler:

It's a sequel to the 2017 novel I finished last year. I have to make some adjustments to last year's novel first but that's why I have two months until NaNo this year.

I haven't even thought of a title for mine yet, but I'm entering! I've got the idea all ready for it, and if I had a title I'd definitely make a cover for it... but... :lol:

It's still coming along.

I love your title cover, Ani-Mei!

Yes, I went searching for pictures of towers and I kept coming back to that one. It has the right look and location for my setting, even the guy in it I might have something to write for him. I added some text, enhanced it, and added a filter that I love for it.

I tried to find a picture that wasn't copyrighted or belonged to someone's Deviantart it had the perfect look. I didn't make the picture. I just added the text and the filter to it.

Rawla, it's got it's own site, just like Ani said! Instead of being a Sim-oriented one, it's just a novel-oriented month!

So how is everyone going with their preparations for NaNo?

I've been Planning out my plot points and timelines; which is a big change for me, usually I just start writing. But trying to have something more coherent this time around, without having to do major rewrites later.

My laptop is giving me grief so I haven't done anything yet. I hope it doesn't affect my NaNo because I write them on this laptop.

I'm quite the opposite, I'm trying to keep OFF of mine, lest I start too early and burn myself right out. I've also been getting killed with school, so I'm taking my breaks where I can get 'em. I'm so excited for this year's Nano though! :bounce:

Funnily enough my laptop is deciding to behave today, maybe it heard my rage and wanted to make amends.

:shhh: It can HEAR you! ;) :lol:

TS4 has been an excellent distraction to keep me from getting carried away with NaNo early.
And also to keep me from doing my homework too... :shifty:

I am getting REALLY excited. My head has the rough outline sketched out, though maybe I should make myself an outline to get out some of my eagerness to just start already.

Spoke too soon. I was writing my 100 Baby Challenge chapter last night and it was still tossing me Not Responding errors. I was using PowerPoint which is part of the Student Office 2010 I have.

An outline is probably a good idea, Livvie. Realising how much stuff I have not figured out yet with my plotlines - and if I don't at least sketch the rough outline, then I'm likely to miss things and/or leave giant plot holes. Like a conscientious girl suddenly not noticing her own pregnancy for four months :duh:

Sucks that you're having issues, Ani-Mei - hopefully Word will be easier on laptop than Sims/PP?

It's all one program, they all do the same thing. I don't know why. I just hope that it saves well enough that I don't lose anything after a particularly intensive writing session.
