Hi, everyone, I'm Siana Blackwood: metalhead, student, writer, goat enthusiast. Also (in theory) the person who's supposed to know the answers to your NaNoFiMo-related questions. I'm probably not going to finish a novel in December, but after starting about a dozen things in November I might actually have one novel-shaped thing to work on. Well... technically it's probably a duology or something. It's a vaguely fairytale-inspired story of necromancy and romance, possibly including magic cyborgs.
So, welcome to NaNoFiMo 2018! Introduce yourself and your projects here...
2011: How to Nuke Your Enemies (10,027/10,000) and Despair (70,070/70,000) 2012: The Frozen Tear - 120,236 / 120,000 (90,188 pre-December) 2013: Desolation + other - no official wordcount 2014: Hold the Necrosauce + I don't know what else (38,409 / 30,000) 2015:
Hi, I'm Bob, from Hawai`i. Glad to see NNFM is back again, thank you Siana, and glad also to hear you're still a, um, "metalhead" (you explained that to me a few years back). I worked on 3 projects during NNWM this year, sort of finished one of them, December goal is to 'finish' via editing.
Hey all! I'm glad this is here... November is always ALWAYS a terrible month to find the time to do as much writing as I want to. This year, it was just totally impossible, and I only got 13,000 words done. December is always so much better (that's what I get for being crazy enough to go back to school, though. So basically, this is the month when I plan to get much more writing and planning done than was possible during NaNo itself.
Currently Spinning Evil Plots to Take Over the World. Chocolate is involved!
Hi everyone. I'm Chris Sears, NaNo Vet for about 15 years.
This November I started two novelettes that quickly turned into novellas. I'll be adding 30k in December and finishing one or both of them.
1. Mr. Bubbles and the Fountain of Youth Fiasco is #3 in the Mr. Bubbles series. (#1, Mr. Bubbles and the Mystery of the Mayan Temple was released in 2017, #2 is in revision). It's a pulp adventure serial about a super intelligent chimp created in a lab experiment and his plucky explorer friends as they face off against absurd villains like Doomsday Steve while searching for lost tombs and treasures.
2. The Kitten in Yellow is the sequel to The Cats of Cthulhu that was released this past year. It's a Lovecraft-inspired horror comedy. Welcome to the Meow-thos.
Looking forward to hearing about your projects and good luck everyone!
hello all. I've done my own version of this on occasion (I called it FiThDaBoMo when I need to finish the book), but I'm glad to join in here.
What I'm writing is the sequel to the book I am shopping to agents at the moment. I got 75k on it during November, and probably have about 25k to go for the rest of story, but really I will keep writing until the story is done.
Hello! I'm Tiffany. I struggled this November for my personal goal. That being said, I have a few projects that need finishing up. Will I? Probably not. I'm okay with that. My biggest goal is to add more to my main story, Apex. It's about an intergalactic pilot that wants to destroy the company she works for. I actually wrote the last scene but I need about 20k more going up to that point to bring it all together. Happy Writing everyone.
rishi: Hey all! I am finding it difficult in editing short stories, so you all know some easy tricks to do editing for short stories?

J. A. Rama: No tricks, really. You just go through, make a note of anything that jumps out at you as feeling off or wrong, and then go back through and try to fix them. It helps to go with your gut rather than overthink - if it feels wrong, it's wrong.

J. A. Rama: It'll be difficult at first, but you learn by practicing over and over. Expect earlier attempts to turn out weird.
