Eep! Go away! XD

No, really. Isn't this a bit too early? I already feel the taste of instant noodles whenever someone speaks of that event...

well, you're kinda right in that it's early... for me! i usually remember a weird piece of a dream i have in mid- to late October and figure out how to turn it into my NaNo. but this year - i had a weird dream and remembered it .... in august!!

so then i've been trying to figure out how to get it to connect with two other weird bits of dreams that i remembered.... and i think i actually have something. me, the pantser! D

Well then, congratulations on your early preparation ^^

I don't get any weird dreams usually, so I have to come up with ideas all on my own. This year I'm thinking I might just use a pen&paper rpg player's guide as initial inspiration, create a few characters and go from there.

trystan830 10-03-2018 05:06 PM

oooh that sounds cool =)

Death by Mirrors 10-03-2018 05:22 PM

Yup, and it gives me a reason to spend unreasonable amounts of time with character creation and p&p sheets.

Completely unrelated, can I interest you in the great opportunity to run a game during the upcoming nox event? Fame and glory awaits (and retired items as staff funded prizes if at least 5 people express their interest here)

Gah, I'm already excited for/dreading next month. I've got two stories planned because I don't really think either merit a full book length of 50k, but we'll see what happens.

Death by Mirrors 10-03-2018 06:19 PM

Meh, I'm pretty sure I'll start writing random crap halfway through just for word count. One of my character archetypes (the witch) has a skill that gives her a bonus if her magic ritual transgresses common standards of morality or something, so that gives me a chance to go either down the route of "super cute yet super psycho" or make her a leather clad hardcore perv.

trystan830 10-03-2018 06:23 PM

i'll think about it, Death

go for it, Mekatra!

Mekatra 10-03-2018 06:25 PM

I feel like "Super cute yet also a psycho" and "leather clad perv" could be the same character. That archetype of sweet librarian by day and dominatrix by night kind of thing.

Death by Mirrors 10-03-2018 06:27 PM

Hmmm... I kinda like the way you think XD

but we'll see. There's other characters too, the fey is a flamboyant gay guy and one of the monsters thinks he's a chosen monster hunter.

I don't want this to be a thing yet! I'm busy and I'm scared of writing every day. I'll be on the forums and nattering anyway, I'm sure. I do like to go to the events and things, even if I'm not actually getting much done.

trystan830 10-04-2018 01:35 PM

well, it's not a thing juuuust yet XD

but i pretty much only write in November. LOL!

and i'm kinda excited about my idea, too

Death by Mirrors 10-04-2018 03:02 PM

I'm scared of writing every day too, but come November that doesn't make it any less fun. There's just something special about knowing thousands of people suffer alongside me. That, and where else do you get to feel productive when you spend the whole day in your pajamas.

I think the most I did was 10k, then I... had no more words in me xDD
