Tell me about your NaNoWriMo project this year! Give me a blurb!
Come to Containsia a place with no gluten and no magic. Hiding from the Empire there maybe Centaurs, Dragons, Dryads, Dwarves, Elves, Fairies, Goblins, Lecrans, Nyads, Onontets, Trolls, Werecats, Weregoats, Werewolves and the occasional talking animal.
Zimran has a few problems. On one hand Zimran has “The Mark of Goozon”, on the other he has “The Mark Dracone”, in the back of his mind is the fact that both he and his sister is of age to wed, never mind the fact that the shunned have been in contact with him.
What’s the genre?
Epic. YA. High. Fantasy. With, No, Magic. There, Will, Be, Dragons. And, Elves. And, Fairies. So…
Describe your MC in three words.
Dragon-rider, Brother, Stressed
Without spoilers, describe your villain in three words.
Empire, Evil, Cliche?
Not to be vague, but this is book one of a (hopefully) five book series, so …
What is your goal? (the traditional 50K? 20K? 5K? or……. 100K?)
Traditional, Traditional, Traditional. I want to hit 50K, but it’s not to important.
Is this your first draft? Second? Third?
First draft, attempt six….
Yes. This story has been around a bit.
Are you starting a new project (or draft), or continuing an existing one?
Starting a new draft. None of the existing drafts are up to snuff, but I will reread them all.
What is your favorite time to write in the day?
Where are you going to write?
It depends. Hopefully on my desk in my room. But I’m still sharing with my sisters and the desk isn’t made yet. Probably on my lap, in my chair, in the living room. Possibly on my bed.
Computer or paper?
Computer, but I may switch to paper. There are advantages to both.
NaNoWriMo is a huge commitment!! How are you going to make time to write?
By reading less. I’m considering almost completely stopping reading on my computer and using that time to write.
Are you going to participate in local or online NaNoWriMo events? (e.g. kick-off parties in your city, write-ins, virtual writing sprints…)
Maybe… Yes! I’m hoping my boss librarian will let me hold a write-in or two in the local library, but I’ll probably do some sprints as well.
Do you write from beginning to end or skip around?
Beginning to end. At a later point some scenes may skip around. But it is supposed to be beginning to end.
Planner or pantser? (or plantser?)
I’m planning. It is slow going. Last time I pantsed.
What will be your go-to NaNoWriMo snack?
Cabbage! Private jokes from Camp Nano aside. Apples, Oranges, Cabbage.
Choice of caffeine? (or no caffeine?)
Mostly no, but I’ll have a cup of black tea on occasion.
Any rewards for milestone achievements? For finishing NaNoWriMo?
Ummm…. Maybe I should do this…. Ummm…. I’m trying to save money…. Ummm…. I really think this is a good idea, but I’ve never really done it. I don’t know what to make my rewards… Mom suggested that I get a sticker for every day I write. What the final reward will be is beyond me. Give me your suggestions.
Share a tip for other NaNo-ers!
Plan ahead. You probably know what days you definitely won’t be able to write on. (I’m looking at you Thanksgiving) so plan ahead and bump up our word count goal accordingly.
How are you feeling about NaNoWriMo? (Excited?! Nervous!? Terrified?!)
Not terrified. I don’t put that much concern into the matter.
Share an aesthetic for your NaNoWriMo novel!
Now to be perfectly honest I’ve never made an aesthetic for anything, so tell me how I did.
The vast majority of these are from Pinterest. Because I realized I wanted to do this tag on Sunday the 13th, last Friday I went to the library and did some pin-surfing. If you want to see other options I considered for this aesthetic and more behind the scenes stuff check out my Containsia board.
I want to tag these wonderful people!
I thought there was a couple more people I wanted to tag, but I can’t find them right now, so I’ll edit it if I remember.
If you want to encourage me or keep track of how I’m doing you can buddy me on NaNoWriMo or buy me a coffee.
I added the tag to my bookstagram
