NaNoWriMo 2015 – Day 1

Word Count Timeline Goal
1.686 01 / 30 50.000
HI^^
It’s once again our favorite time of year – yeah, it’s NaNoWriMo!

I usually put up a countdown post in the preparation to Nano, but this November I just kept pushing it and delaying it and then I realized that it was already November XD

So, this year I thought I might as will do something else – jupp, a daily update of today’s writing. Saying this, I don’t mean that I will publish a post every single day with a paragraph or two of what i did that one day, no, that would be to spam a little too much. What I will do, is to gather all of these notes in a document, and then I will post it all on the summary page I make of the event when November is over. It will be like a little diary I guess^^

Anyway I will still do the check points. However, I don’t think I will divide the month into four, but tree. That way I can have one every tenth day – so the 10th, the 20th and the 30th will have one. Saying that, I will also have this one of cause (duh), so I guess it in a way will be four posts.

One thing though. I will not spend much time on facebook this month. The reason behind this is that I feel that I get really distracted there. I will look in once in a while, but it might take time for me to check it. That goes for my private account, put I plan on spending more time on my like-page, so you should be able to contact me there, as well as reading my daily updates. The same goes for twitter too, so feel free to tweet me^^

So, what about you readers? Are you planning on participating in NaNoWriMo? And if you are, what are you plans and goals? I know the set goal is 50.000, but my personal one is 30.000. It’s not that I won’t try to go for the golden 50k, but I just feel that it might be to stretch it a little. But yeah, I wanna know about you, so tell me, tell me^^

I guess that is all for today.
I hope you all are well and that you are plenty inspired^^

Until next time.
– Winny

CampNaNoWriMo – 2015 – July – CountDown

Word Count Timeline Goal
0 0 / 31 10.000
I can’t believe it’s actually my one year anniversary of NaNoWriMo! It’s been only ONE year! Wow. Anyway, here are a little look at my plans and goals for the event.

What do I want to achieve?
Well, just as always I want to get as much done as possible. I know I say it every, single time, but what can I do when that is the truth? Most of my plans are actually similar too. I want to update my old stories, and finish some of ongoing and unpublished works, but this time I’m also hoping to work a lot on an original story of mine.

My goal when it comes to word count is 10.000. I know, I know. I should probably try to go or 30 – and I will, but I just want to take into consideration that I have other stuff coming up too. And what is this other things, you ask? Well, I’m going on vacation with my voice acting group and this always is in the end of July-beginning of August. This means that I in a way end CampNaNo on the 26th – which means 5 days less to write in. Then there is a festival that I’ll be working on for 2 days. That, and my birthday is the first weekend and I’m gonna celebrate it by going away with a friend that also have birthday that week. This will take 3 more days from my writing – so in a way my number of days aren’t 31, but actually 21.

How do I plan to work?
I’m gonna push myself. Yeah, that’s right. I’m gonna try to squeeze out a minimum of 1k each day, and hopefully pull through!

Projects:
These are the projects that I already have decided to work on.

CampNaNoWriMo – 2015 – April – CountDown

Word Count Timeline Goal
0 0 / 30 30.000
April will soon be upon us all, and so, here are my plans and goals.

What do I want to achieve?
My goal will (as always) to be able to push myself to continue my existing stories and to create (and complete) a couple of short stories. Basically it’s more about the quantity than quality this month. The reason behind this choice is that I want to train my brain to be able to handle writing on the same piece in a longer period of time.
My goal for the word count is basically 30.000. The reason behind this is that I think this goal should be reachable even while having both work and school in addition to CampNaNoWriMo. Also, the number 30k is easily and nicely divided to 1k each day for 30 days. However, I’m not excluding the idea of 50k. If I’m close to it, then I’ll probably try to push myself over that line, but I feel that it’s better to have a more realistic goal, which make a bigger chance for ending up succeeding.

How do I plan to work?
I will try to write something every day, but the amount of words will make me able to write for 2 or maybe even 3 days at once. Still, I want to try writing the daily amount each day and only let the extra amount be a bonus.

Projects:
These are the projects that I already have decided to work on.

NaNoWriMo 2014 – Week 3

Word Count Timeline Goal
38.414 23 / 30 50.000
There’s just one week left of NaNoWriMo, so I guess it’s time for another check-up!

What have I been doing?
I think that this week has been the hardest for me so far. Why? Well, because I’ve been finishing so many of my stories, I have close to none to work on now. So yeah. I need ideas.

I think my biggest break through was “Burning”. Not only did I write the whole chapter, but I also started drafting on the future plot – and now I actually know how the story is gonna end!

How is my schedule looking?
Well, this last week has been a lot up and down, and I’ve had some days that have been alarmingly low when it comes to word count, but I’ve worked hard, and as of now, I’m a little ahead again.

What am I gonna work on until next week?
It’s kinda scary to think about the fact that the next week is the last week. Within this week I should probably finish all the projects I’ve been working on, but I fear that won’t be possible. So yeah. My goal for next week? Well, I guess my first prioritization is to actually make it to the 50.000 word count. If I manages that, then I guess I won’t care as much if some stories needs work in December.

However, if I have to set some goals, then:
* The Dresden Files OneShot

* “Tainted Love” chapter 8
* My Bolt x Salada OneShot
* “Burning” Chapter 12

Oh, and as I’ve said in two weeks now: I might run out of ideas for new oneshots. So, if you do have a request – send it to me, okay?

Anyway, I you’re a fellow writer – Keep writing! You can do this. And if you wanna sprint with me – just say the word^^

Until next time.

NaNoWriMo 2014 – Week 2

Word Count Timeline Goal
27.724 16 / 30 50.000
Yet another NaNoWriMo week has passed by, so I guess it’s time for another check-up!

What have I been doing?
This week I have mostly focused on my Christmas Project – so now 12 of the 24 days are complete + the information chapter (Chapter Zero) that I’m gonna publish in advance of December.

I have written two new oneshots, started on two others and, in addition to that, I’ve also began translating one of my Norwegian stories. The English one will have a larger word count – both because of the language differences, but also because I’ve chose to rewrite some parts and adding a little here and there.

How is my schedule looking?
Just as last time. I’m just about on schedule. or, actually, I’m 373 words ahead – not that that is much.

What am I gonna work on until next week?
Because I didn’t get to complete some of the goals I put up last week, I’m gonna try them once again. So I’ll try finishing ‘Tainted Love’ Ch 8 and my Dresden-story. I’m not sure. Maybe start on one of my other planned oneshots or maybe even work on another ‘Daddy’s Devilish Diary’ with GoldenWhiteRose. But, first of all I’ll take a look at ‘Burning 11’.

Still, just as I mentioned last week: I might run out of ideas for new oneshots. So, if you do have a request – send it to me, okay?

That’s it for now. I’m actually more excited than last wee. I mean, I’ve already passed the number of words I managed to write during July. So, I can say with certainty that I’ll pass my personal goal of 30.000 words within the month. Next goal is 40.000, but of cause I’m not giving up on the 50.000 one!

Anyway, I you’re a fellow writer – Keep writing! You can do this. And if you wanna sprint with me – just say the word^^

Until next time.

NaNoWriMo 2014 – Week 1

Word Count Timeline Goal
15.061 9 / 30 50.000
It’s been about one week since the beginning of NaNoWriM0 – and that means that it’s time for a check-up!

What have I been doing?
So far I’ve been focused on two new oneshots of mine. The fist one is from ‘Attack on Titan’ and is now completed, the other one is from ‘The Dresden Files’ and is about 60% done. Also, yesterday, I wrote quite a bit on ‘Tainted Love’ chapter 8 – I guess I’m about halfway through it.

I’ve also worked on my Christmas project – I guess I haven’t told you guys about that one yet. I’m planning to give ore information about it in about a week or two. But yeah. I an say that it’s a funny little story-thingy that will be updated EVERY SINGLE DAY of December 1st to 24th. Doesn’t that sound like fun? So yeah, I’ve completed 5 of them, and I’m working on two others^^

How is my schedule looking?
Well, I can’t say that I’m way ahead of myself. I guess you could say that I’m just in time. There have been some days where I’ve written a bit too little, but then the next day managed less. So yeah, I’m currently 52 words ahead – yey^^

Luckily, mos my schoolwork is done, so now I have more time to write. However, I kinda feel like I’m in need of more ideas. Sure I have my ongoing, long stories, but I’m not the type to be able to keep writing onthe same piece for more than 3.000 words without a break. So yeah, any ideas for a new story to me?

What am I gonna work on until next week?
Well, I guess I’ll try finishing ‘Tainted Love’ Ch 8 and my Dresden-story. Also, I guess I should be able to do 4 or 5 more parts of my Christmas-project. Besides that? Well, I’m not sure. Maybe start on one of my other planned oneshots or maybe even work on another ‘Daddy’s Devilish Diary’ with GoldenWhiteRose. I guess we should just wait and see^^

I guess that was all. I really feel like I might actually make it this tie around – and not only my personal goal of 30k, but the official on 50k! Isn’t that amazing!

Anyway, I you’re a fellow writer – Keep writing! You can do this. Ad if you wanna sprint with me – just say the word^^

Until next time.

NaNoWriMo 2014 – CountDown

Word Count Timeline Goal
0 0 / 30 50.000
IT’S HERE!
Hey you guys, it’s finally time to start NaNoWriMo 2014!

What is NaNoWriMo?
Well, to put it simple: it’s a worldwide challenge to write 50.000 words within a month – so yeah, within 30 days. The name is actually: “National Novel Writing Month” – and it kinda tells you what to write. Still, you don’t need to do a novel – I guess it’s just up to yourself what you wanna do.

What’s my relationship with NaNo?
Well, this is the second time I participate in such an event. Last time was during July with the CampNaNoWriMo. There you chose a goal yourself – mine was on 25.000 words – and I did it. This time the word count is set – so I guess I won’t be able to win this one – if I don’t get into a writing trance or something. personally my goal is 30.000. It might sound like a small goal to just write 5.000 more than last time, but this time there are other circumstances to think of; like there is one day less i November and that I have school with hand-ins and exams. So yeah, I think this will be more than enough for me.

Plans for this NaNo:
Yeah, if I only knew. Always when I make plans something happens. I’ve still made a plan though – though I’m not sure I’ll be able to stick to it. Fist off I’m gonna work with “Tainted Love” and try to get as much as possible done with that one. I also have to get something done about my Christmas project. If I have time I’ll work on my upcoming story: “His words”, and I also have a few one shots / short stories in mind. So yeah, who knows.

So tell me: Are you gonna participate?
If so: what are your plans?
And do you wanna sprint with me sometime?

That’s all for now.
The event starts in 2 minutes – literary – so I have to get ready.
I guess I’ll see you guys later – cause I’ll make sure to make some post to show my progression and to share my thoughts and complains ^^
