Yes, a few days late to wish it, but I had other posts to put up!
Anyway, if you don’t know what NaNoWriMo stands for, it’s Na(tional) No(vel) Wri(ting) Mo(nth). The goal is to write a novel 50k words long, in 30 days. Sounds scary, but it’s doable! There’s a Young Writers Program for it to, where you can set lower goals.
I’ve been on the YWP site for a few years now, doing goals like 15k. For some crazy reason, I decided to go for 50k this year. Eeeeeeek! I wasn’t sure if I’d get further than a few thousand words on the 1st, but yesterday during a long sprint (Not a run. I don’t like running. A NaNo Sprint ;D) I finally got everything together and I kind of know where my novel is going now! It’s still scary, and I’m slightly behind on words at 3.5k, but I’m going for it this year!
My novel is a sci-fi, and is all centered around the CURIOSITY robot. CURIOSITY is a robot that’s on Mars at the moment, and I’ve twisted the story a little to say that it took pictures of an alien life form. A few years later, after the world has stopped panicking, NASA sends up three astronauts to investigate, and their mission is to take samples from the Moon first, then travel onto Mars. But then they die on the Moon. Because I’m evil and decided the aliens would murder them there. So before they die, they’ve sent a message to Earth that says DESTROY THE MOON. And NASA wants to do that to stop the aliens from coming. And then chaos ensues. Whoop! I have more but I won’t bore you!
If you’re doing NaNoWriMo, GOOD LUCK! 😀 I know lots of bloggers that are participating this year, and some are doing ridiculously well and are getting very far ahead. I’ve heard lots about some stories, and they’re all so brilliant! If you’re joining in, you can view my page to add me as a buddy HERE.
