NaNoWriMo:- Day 2

Happy day 2 of reckless writing NaNoWriMoer’s!

How are we all doing? Great?  Struggling? Procrastinating?  Whatever you’re feeling you are not alone. Trust me on this ;). We will all feel like that at some point this month I’m sure.

What is happening in your story world? Any hopeless romantics? Any comic characters coming to life? I’d love to hear some of your journeys progressing. If you’d like to share please feel free to comment below.

I’ll tell you what’s happened in mine so far;

Like the first book, Pandora’s Box, we follow Rosie, Leah and Sylvie on their quest to find out who they really are due to learning that they are adopted and part of some ancient legend that appears to be real.

Rosie’ s first part focuses on her vision of her ‘mum’ being tortured horrifically by the Moirai, Episkopos’ s answer to our modern day Government. This is due to her psychometric ability which is made able by a necklace that Twink slipped in with her letter, given previously on their farewell.

Leah’s focuses on going back to the beginning of ‘time’. Something that’s hard to place during her time travel flashes. She sees a woman gathering her children together who are also couples (???) Asking them to participate in a quest. And later sees the death of her husband, releasing a girl through the dismemberment of his genitals.

And Sylvie, who has the ability to astral project through lucid dreaming witnesses the Moirai plotting something sinister.

I can’t really say that I know what happens. Whether that’s a good or bad thing I’m not sure. But I can’t wait to find out.

Remember, YOU CAN DO IT!!!

Welcome NaNoWriMoer’s!

I hope you are all progressing steadily with your WIP’s and are not panicking just yet. After all, it is only thr first day.

What’s that I hear? The first day is the most important? I agree which is why, I am going to be your advisory, your advocate in raising hell on paper and listening to ideas and plots.

I took part last year and although I didn’t finish, it was well worth the go and I applaud you for choosing this wonderful opportunity. And I am willing to try again this year.

Here are my tips for the first day; 🙂

1. Make a brief outline

An outline should be your main port of call, it’s a bit like staging characters; knowing where and what is going to happen can save you a whole lot of bother as I’ve found out recently while structuring my second novel (which is at a staggering -240 words so far) I created mine this morning and even though things could change it has assured me a lot.

2. Get down to writing.

That is what NaNoWriMo is all about. The writing doesn’t have to be perfect. You just have to make sure that your wrist doesn’t stop moving and that the nib of the pen doesn’t leave the page.  Don’t worry about punctuation or grammar,  don’t worry if the descriptions of your characters don’t match. You can focus on all of those things later when it’s finished.

3. Enjoy yourself. 

NaNoWriMo or not the creative process is supposed to be enjoyed and fun, not a tedious journey. Remember that on our journey. 🙂

And if today is a bad day, then rest assured tomorrow will be better.

Good luck,

Blaze
