Writing: NaNoWriMo [Day 18]

Posted 18 November, 2012 by Lianne in Writing / 4 Comments

Wouldn’t it be nice if the view out of my window was this rather than the side of my neighbour’s house?

My life, what is this? *thud* I’m supposed to be at…I believe it’s 30 000 words…today but alas, I’ve been busy with deadlines towards the end of last week. However, I have been writing in my notebook so it’s just a matter of transferring it over to know what my word count is–and I’m slowly covering ground, yay!

So, where am I? Well, I’m still writing the big, emotional scenes that stick out in my mind the most. But get this: my main antagonist hasn’t cropped up yet. lol. You hear about him from other characters and the crap he’s done but I just have not written a scene with him in it yet. I hope to remedy that in the next few days as all of the big scenes are dwindling down and it’s now all of the connecting scenes I need to focus on.

I’ve also come to the conclusion that I think the literary genre might be more of my niche (aside from fantasy and science fiction). I have a lot more fun writing scenes that involve a lot of characterisation and character interaction rather than the more suspenseful scenes (at least in the case of this writing project–though I do like the genre!).

Anyways, that’s about it in my update for now, let’s see if I catch up 4 000 words today 😉

  1. Go, fight, win! Obviously I opted not to do WriMo this year, as I still don’t have my own computer (currently borrowing a friend’s) and have a lot on my plate at the moment. But I’m full of admiration for you and everyone else who’s still at it. You can do it!!

    • Thanks Christine! That’s been me for the past week or so–hope your NaNo’s been going well and that you’ve managed to do some catching up 🙂
