resa: (clear your heart)
I haven't reached 15.000 words today, but I finished my second story of the month. Hurray!
(And it's good, heh. (The first one is, too, but that was way too easy, believe me.))

Life's a bitchy bitch, but I keep on writing. I'm happy and very proud. Last week was such a hassle and today was pretty exhausting yet again, but I sat down and did it. Phew. ♥

resa: (NaNoWriMo)

"Sie trinkt viel zu Kaffee."

Trifft auf mich und [personal profile] khana auch zu. (Auf mich besonders.) Ich würde ja gern sagen: "Nach müde kommt blöd" oder "Da war so eine Flasche Wein", aber nee, echt nur viel zu Kaffee...

resa: (NaNoWriMo)

Hey, after being slightly behind schedule for two days, I just caught up.

NaNoWriMo has already been a really challenging experience for me. Yesterday, I changed my story twice. For the first three days/4.500 words, I wrote emails, but then, it started feeling odd, not close enough to what I wanted to show. When I realized that, I was frustrated and at a loss what to do. So, I started rambling in meta mode. When frustrated with writing, I often do this. It felt good and calmed me down enough to think about what to do with the remaining 26 days of NaNoWriMo. First, I wondered if I could fill a whole book with a metafictional story but decided that would be even farer away from my goal than the initial emails.

That's why I picked up the characters from my unfinished NaNo story in 2007 and asked them how they were. They said, "fine" and I asked them, "wanna tell me something interesting?" and many of them said, "sure". Now, I'm writting fluffy little pieces of magical realism, or fairy tales, or whatever. It's sweet and makes me happy. And I'm looking foward to all the other suprises coming my way during this year's NaNoWriMo.

Okay, I lied, but I actually didn't know better yesterday.

Things is, you probably will be hearing more words from me during NaNoWriMo, because it makes me so unbelievably happy. Not only the writing, but also the realization that my whole schedule, uni, job, and my cold (to boot it all) seems to kinda fit around it, this week at least.

It's amazing, the whole craziness of it all, me, my story, and I don't think happy thoughts do any harm here, do they?

I'm at 3,527 words (~ 8,5 pages) right now and so happy I could burst into a billion little pieces. Love it!

How have writers ever procrastinated NaNoWriMo effectively without Facebook? I don't know.

Anyways, I made the daily goal. I don't know how I'll manage on days which are not weekends, but I'll try. In about a week, you might find me screaming "10.000!", and "20.000!" in two weeks time, but apart from that, I won't bother you guys much. As said before, this year's NaNoWriMo will be more about getting things out of the system for me than writing a novel. I do have a story to tell, but November will show whether or not I will come around to tell it. Today, I hugely enjoyed the feeling of writing a novel disguised as a series of emails.

(And if all else fails, I will write porn. Watch me!)
