i've written a novel || nano is in 24 days wut

Friday, October 07, 2016





Can you believe we are already a week into October? like, wut. for all you crazy nano-ers (talking to myself too btw) NANO STARTS IN 24 DAYS.

So I'm seriously 1,500 words away from 50k. NO I AM NOT KIDDING WHAT. okay, *deep breath* this is my first novel and I've got maybe...20k left? WHAT. 50K PEOPLE. *shakes you* I AM SO EXCITED CAN YOU TELL I"M NOT EVEN DONE WITH IT. no, my precious book doesn't have a title because I decided to change it because it doesn't relate to the book any more but I can't find another title so I'll just call it "my novel" can you relate? xP

I'm not writing the full 50k this month -- no, I'm not chickening out I just have to finish my book first before I start a new one, (which, surprisingly, I actually have a few new ideas for). shall we say, YAS. like, it's so much nicer having something else to move onto.

so I'm not sure if it's called cheating or what, but I'm using nano to finish up my book so, no, I'm not writing 50k next month. But I really don't care--I JUST CAN'T BELIEVE I HAVE A NOVEL. like, doesn't that just sound cool? nooovveeeelllll. oh yassss.

Along with much writing, like, last month I beta read 3 books in a week in all completely different genres. (going to read another one sooonnnn you know who you areee) so yes. much words. YOU GUYS JUST WRITE AMAZING BOOKS, OKAY.

p.s. Julia and I got such an AMAZING response from you all from our video a couple days ago. like, YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME. so, I'm not going to reveal anything. You'll just have to wait until the end of this month to find out anything. sowwwwyyy *runs off*

have you ever written a novel?
have you ever beta read a book before?

    1. Yasss!! I'll probably let people read it after I finish it (lol) and have done at least the first draft. I have a lot of plot holes to fix up. xP awww, thanks! Julia took them for me :D :D

  7. Good luck with NaNo! I'm too crazy busy with editing to start a whole new story or complete one for this year's NaNoWriMo, but I salute you who are brave enough to do it!

    The pictures...*gasp* SO GLORIOUSLY BEAUTIOUS!

    1. I'm hoping next year I'll actually go out to write the whole 50k--I would have done it this year but there just wasn't time to finish this book, come up with a completely new one and then plot it. xP

      THANK YOU SO MUCHHH <33333333

  8. First OH MY GOODNESS. I just CAN'T with those photos. Like I'm literally flailing. SO GORGEOUS AHHH. At what time of day did you take them? I'm guessing evening, but I'm curious about the exact time...

    Oh yes, I have beta-read... three projects? Only two of them were novels; the other was a novella. I love beta-reading, and I definitely want to do more of it. <3 BUT I'M JUST SO BUSY AT THE MOMENT. Whyyy?

    And... no, I have yet to complete a novel. I made several attempts when I was ten-eleven, but they were either horribly cliched or complete plagiarisms of something else. :P And then I attempted again last Camp NaNo, and stopped that project too. (I don't want to ramble about why here, but if you want to know you can find my name in the comment section of: http://iamawriterandthisismyblog.blogspot.com/2016/09/capture-heart-of-your-story.html)

    But this NaNo... I'm taking the leap. I'm going to try.

    (by the way, THOSE PHOTOS ARE JUST AHHHH AND JUST THE LIGHT IS DELICIOUS, and I totally did not say that already.)

      YAS YOU CAN DO IT. (I 'friended' you on nano BTW) you can totally do it. Are you a plotter, or pantser? :D :D

      GAHHH THANK YOU AGAIN <33333333333333333
