Oh, I know that XD And there are some decent parts in the beginning. But writing this really made me realize more than anything that this story still needs a TON of work.

Luckily I realized waaaaaay late that I had a group I could very easily have turned into main antagonists, but didn't. So if I do rewrite it, they'll have a MUCH bigger role.

I participated in NaNo and didn't end up getting past about 4-5k words. November is such a busy month, I'm going to have to try to get that word count another month.

I get way too easily distracted and get caught up in quality when I should just worry about quantity.

Yeah, I wanted to do it to. But I was quite busy this past November. :( Maybe next year....

*pokes thread to wake it up*

who's doing NaNo this year? this is my 4th year, and i've won/finished my story for the last three years, 2011, 2012, and 2013.

I actually won't be writing for NaNo this year. I'm working on turning the first chapter of my 2011 winner into a comic so I can start selling it at conventions. Which is funny, to me, at least, because Banshee Illuminated was originally intended to be a comic, not a novella.

Lawtan 10-31-2014 06:22 PM

I would, but most things I do are inconsistent. So, I'll write as I can.

Den 10-31-2014 06:26 PM

Last year, I only ended up writing about 10K. It was a stressful month for me though, so I wasn't able to devote a lot of time to writing. this year, I'm focusing more on getting the comic done... With an absolute deadline of January 1 for the inks, January 30th for toning, and February 11th for finishing the cover. Then it's going to be a deadline of March 7th for getting stuff printed so it's ready for Planet Comicon.

trystan830 10-31-2014 07:20 PM

well that sounds really cool, Den! =)

SolarCat 11-03-2014 02:15 PM

Good luck, AutobotDen! That does sound exciting.

I love NaNoWriMo, but I've only participated once, way back in college.
Someday I will write again... Currently, though, my efforts are more towards school. (I did write a 2200 page case study paper yesterday, though, does that count any? Ha!)

trystan830 11-03-2014 02:22 PM

so i've started. and getting distracted as usual - but they're by my every-day websites, so they're only distractions when i'm working on NaNo. and this cool Tris event doesn't help!

also, my word count widget is in my signature!

I did Nano this year, but crashed and burned after the first week, with a grand total of 3650 words. It's a start of something though. My first year I reached 24 000 with miscellaneous writing. Was doing a similar thing this year.

trystan830 12-02-2014 10:49 AM

well, as someone on another forum said, that's more than *most* people write! so congrats on your 3,650 words!! =)

I've heard about it and thought about joining it, but I could never find enough information on it to do so.

trystan830 12-29-2014 06:15 PM

the easiest way to join is to just write a novel in november! if you want to track your progress and see a status bar with "winner" on it at the end of 50,000 words, you can sign up at, and submit your word count periodically to see your progress! =)

maybe i'll see you in november, Aikko!

(also, random, what dress or skirt/shirt are you wearing, and is it a shop item?)

Madame-Aiko 12-29-2014 06:31 PM

I found it in the shop, I believe in the Lavish Luxuries, and it is called Black Slip Dress. :) Hope it helps!
