[OOC] NaNo Update

It’s been a few days since I updated, weekends aren’t great for writing. And I didn’t get to the extra story I wanted to do either — maybe this evening but…

[OOC] NaNo Update

I’m struggling a little with pacing, trying not to use too much of my “good stuff” too fast. Before I stop for the day, I like to write a couple of notes for what I’m starting with the following day. Tomorrow is going to be some good horror-y scenes! I have no idea if this is actually scary to anyone, but it’s fun at least.

Going to try to do a WoW short later today after meetings are done.

[OOC] NaNo Update

Saturdays aren’t great for writing for me, but I managed to get some done. I also am having difficulty with the transition from Act One to Act Two, namely because I need to convey information that the main character doesn’t know. Hopefully it’s not too clunky, I can fix it later.

Tomorrow after chores I intend to sit down and get a lot done!

[OOC] BlizzCon 2017

WoW is the only Blizzard game that I play (or even have installed) so I was curious to see what will be next.

And, well, I don’t think they could have made an expansion I would hate more if they tried. Forced faction conflict? Trolls? Pirates? Forced scaling? World quests? UGGGGGH. All that’s missing is some form of garrison, but that’ll probably be included too.

Not even the sub-races interest me very much, they require you do complete a long questline to unlock, and there’s not really anything I’ve seen that interests me. I like my characters fine as they are, I don’t need them to look different. (Unless they wanted to fix the Worgen model.) I would have been way more excited for new race/class combos, specifically Night Elf Paladin.

So the plan remains to keep my sub for RP purposes, as well as mount/pet/achievement hunting, but I don’t know how long that’ll hold my interest, really. I really do enjoy writing and roleplaying my characters, but we could do that on another platform if need be.

[OOC] NaNo Update

Forgot to post this last night — had a great writing day yesterday, ended at:

8,056/50,000

I attended a local write-in, I wasn’t too sure how it would go with other people around but I got a ton done! I’m going to try to go to the others if my schedule allows. They also have them on Sunday mornings but that’s usually when I do house cleaning stuff.

I feel about ready to start on Act 2 soon, where stuff really starts to happen!

[OOC] NaNo Update

I decided to stay up and start at midnight on November 1st. Then I was able to get a little more done this morning. I feel like it’s going great, just hope I can keep the momentum going! It would be nice to have a “buffer” for more difficult days like weekends and Thanksgiving.

[OOC] NaNoWriMo 2017

Well, I talked myself into signing up for NaNo this year. If you don’t know what that is, it’s a challenge to write 50,000 words in the month of November. There’s a site here, if you’re interested in joining in:

https://nanowrimo.org/

It’s been a really long time since I’ve attempted it, and my life is a lot busier now than it was then. But I am fairly confident that I’ll be able to keep up with my word-count if I can set aside a set block of time every day.

However, because I have hopes to publish this book eventually, that means I won’t be able to post it here. It also means it’s not likely that I’ll have time to write much else during the month of November. I’ll try to queue up some interesting screenshots to look at in the meantime! I will also post updates, and maybe excerpts if I don’t feel like they’re too embarrassing!
