Right. So. Day 1 of NaNoWriMo has begun.

I went to the local write-in today and met some highly entertaining people. However, the vague semblance of an idea I had sort of crashed and burned. Maybe it was the venue. I'm bad about writing with other people around. And by bad I mean I can't do it. Especially when I can't see my screen due to the angle at which the sun is coming through the window.

I did manage to write about 2K, but it was an uphill battle, and I have very little (read: no) desire to continue. These characters have a story, but they're being darn quiet about it at the moment, while the characters from my WIP are shouting at the top of their lungs.

I suspect my WIP characters may have sent goons to threaten my NaNo characters.

Anyway, at this point, I'm considering changing NaNoWriMo into NaNoSlashMo (National Novel Slashing Month). Let's see if I can axe 50K from my mutated WIP in a month.

Decisions, decisions.

Anyhoo, I'm off to write a bit of my WIP, in the hopes that Sade and Mina might shut up long enough to let me write a bit more in my NaNo book.

How's everyone else doing with NaNo? Or non-Nano?


  1. I think you switch to working on your WIP :) It's all about what will give you more satisfaction.

    I'm doing okayish! I rewrote 500 words today... wish I could have done more, but ohhh well.

  2. Yeah, switch to your old WIP if it's clamoring to be heard!

    Good luck :)

    And I'm doing quite nicely with my unproductiveness. This is NaStuForSatMo (National Study For SAT Month) for me...*cries*

  3. Write whichever your more happier with at the moment! I had an SNI but my current WIP just would not allow me to abandon it!

    If I write 2K everyday- I should be done with it in 2 weeks. I am so excited to be able to finish my first novel. sad, i know lol

  4. I'm turning my WiP to my NaNo project 'cause the characters just won't let me get away, won't let me start anything new!
    Peachie's right, you should get back to your WiP..g'luck!

  5. This first day was a bust for me. Woke up too late and had a research paper to finish. I've since decided to just write and not worry about the daily word count. If I do, I'm going to get overwhelmed.

  6. Hehehe. And the WIPs have it! =D

    *scurries away to write*
