2006 NaNoWriMo

Oct. 22nd, 2006 | 11:17 pm

Yup, despite a new promotion at work, I'm going to attempt NaNoWriMo again this year. I've done it for the past 4 years and won the last 2, so the pressure is on so that I can have a success rate higher than 50%. Woot!

The story this year is based on the fabulous universe created by Joss Whedon in his show "Firefly" (and repeated in the motion picture Serenity). Instead of focusing on the crew of Serenity, my NaNo would focus on an original crew dealing with their own original(ish) problems. Essentailly, it's fanfiction which is probably technically against the rules, but I don't care: it's my month and I'll write what I want to.

I don't know how well a television show will adapt to a novel: I figure we'll see where we wind up. I've worked up a lot of pre-vis stuff to keep my interest level high, including a cast list (with graphics) and a mock-up of the ship the story will feature. So! Even if you don't want to read the NaNo, you might like seeing the setup stuff.

But you won't see ANYTHING unless you comment to be added. Every entry related to this project (with the exception of this one, obviously) is going to be Friends Only. So comment and I'll add you so you can read and cheer me on.

Here we go again! 2005 NaNoWriMo. I want to actually NOT pre-plan it this year: I like the idea of just letting it happen without plot ideas or whatever. Not even characters or anything. I want to let it happen as it comes, y'know?

Okay, so I won't actually have any pre-writing or anything to fill this up with, but here's the kicker: The writing itself will be friends only. Now, I haven't cleared this out from back in the day, so if you were on it back then, you'll be on it now. If you would LIKE to be added to this journal and get to read the insanity, comment to this entry.

(Likewise, if you are already on the friendslist and you want to be taken off, comment here and I'll cry remove you.)

Once More Into the Fray

Yes, I'm doing NaNoWriMo again this year, woohoo! I won last year, hopefully I can do the same this year. In any event, the deal is the same this year as last: The story will be friends only, and comment if you want to be added. (I'm leaving everyone on from last year, though, so if you don't want to be spammed with my story this year: comment to be un-added.)

Uh... yeah. This is my NaNoWriMo novel, but it's gonna be Friends Only, in an effort to at least keep track of who has been subjected to it. So! If you want to read, just comment to this entry and I'll add you to the Friends list.
