NaNoWriMo Statistics

This does not bode well for me. Apparently, at the rate I’m going with my story writing, I’d be finished by March 26, 2012… that’s four months after November!! There could never be a more appropriate moment to facepalm.

Shame on me.






Oh, It’s the 31st of October

You know what that means… *waggles eyebrows*

Happy Halloween!

This day is a very important day because, apart from Halloween, it symbolises a couple more things for me. Take the death of James and Lily Potter. As a Harry Potter fan, I feel obligated to mourn their deaths and celebrate it at the same time, because that led to the inevitability of Harry’s destiny…

On to happier things, October 31st is also the day my friends and I have planned to go bowling. It’s been about four or five months since I went bowling, so yay! for me. Also, it’s been a while since I’ve met up with most of my friends given that it’s currently the half-term holidays for my school. (Don’t get me started on the load of homework I have to do… erg.)

Oh, and I suppose the end of October welcomes the beginning of November… and guess what that means?


As of this moment, there are only twelve hours to go before it’s officially time to begin writing my so-called novel. I’m excited and thrilled and all the other words in the thesaurus, but later on I know I’ll be freaking out like a maniac: What on earth convinced me that this was a great idea? What have I gotten myself into?! Things like that ;D

But, oh well. I’ve begun this journey and there’s no stopping me. M’kay?!

Pre-Nano Jitters

After seeing that article on DailyPost, I figured that joining the National Novel Writing Month (aka NaNoWriMo) would be worth my while. I’ve always wanted to write a novel before I hit eighteen and, since I’m well-versed in the arts of procrastinating, I figured NaNoWriMo would be my best bet. If by chance you’re a fellow NaNo writer — or Wrimo, I think we’re called — then awesome! We can panic together!

Since I’m juggling this between my coursework, I’ll have to become a better planner and use my time wisely before November starts. My ‘novel’ is still in its baby years, but I am really psyched about this and I hope beyond hope that I will not disappoint. What I’ve got to show so far is a summary of sorts.

Dorcas Chase and Cyrus Roberg are two very different people and have absolutely nothing in common. She is the sister of the most popular girl in town, and he is the son of a reclusive scientist. However, after a strange phenomenon enabled Dorcas to somehow live in Cyrus’ mind, they find a way to coexist. Can Dorcas look past the surface and see the secret Cyrus is trying to hide? Will Cyrus ever find a way to extract Dorcas from his mind?

The answer is yes… and no.


What do you think? Does it have potential? I’m chewing my nails here…
