Life caught up with me[ NaNoWriMo]

November 6th, 2009

Hey you guys!

Decided to post to let you all know I'm still alive (And swamped with hw and projects- thanks for caring Sultani!)

But thankfully it's the weekend!

Do any of you guys know about NaNoWriMo? National Novel Writing Month?

You basically try to complete a 50k Novel in a month!

That's write! (hehe)

50,000!

I joined it this year and I'm about 6,000 words behind so far (trying to get 1,000 a day but I'm leaving it all for the weekend -cringe-)

I love writing and reading, but the irony is that I never finish what I start.

I usually have stories that I stop halfway due to lack of interest or I get so caught up in the non-fiction world that it eventually gathers dust in my inventory.

I started this one novel a year ago and I'm still trying to work on it but on NaNoWriMo I started a whole 'nother novel.

yeeeaaaaaaaahhhhh

So if you wanna join (not too late! Just a couple days behind) go to the link or check out other people's stories on there.

Writing, for me, is a great outlet and insha'Allah I can win this year! (By win, I mean actually get to 50,000 words. Currently: 1,200 :[ )

And that's a brief update. I'll discuss something 'brainy' later.

Shoot! I wanted to do it, but I don't have any ideas for it. I might try tonight and see what I come up with (I haven't written in ages).

I heard about the challenge on November 2nd I think and figured I was not too late and I joined. But then I realized I have no idea what to write about, but I started something anyway. I have like 2000 words or so, but I'm not sure where I'm going with it. And I have so little time to write! I did these 2000 words at work between calls (the time I usually use for reading blogs).

Good luck with your novel! You can do it!
