My first attempt at NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) has officially started. I have to say that right now the novelity of it has me quite excited about what might be achieved over the month.
The wordcount is already behind what it is supposed to be, but it has given me time to mull over some possible ideas for the story as a side-effect.
I’ve informed my immediate family and some of my friends as to what the general idea of the novel is. I’m really pleased by the positive reaction to the idea. Up to now, it was just something that I thought might be an interesting/possibly funny story. But I’ve gotten some questions about the story that suggest it might have more legs than I initially suspected.
Some of the feedback has given me some ideas to get past parts of the plot that weren’t working for me. There are some parts of the story that still need a bit of work but it’s get closer to where it needs to be.
At this stage in NaNoWriMo, I would recommend anyone who has never tried it to give it a go. It really gives you focus and motivation to do some writing every day.
