A little behind, BUT I'm in the depths of chapter one/two, setting up a lot of stuff, so there's a lot to make sure and get in there.

I'm getting a little intimidated, though not by the fact that I can't write, more by the fact that I write far too much and have set up overly-lofty goals for myself in my VN project. My proof-of-concept doc alone is almost 12,000 words. My character profiles weigh in at a couple thousand words each. My plot summary, which needs a lot of editing down, is currently hovering around 50,000 :uhoh:

(obviously most of this was written before nanowrimo, but in the last week I've produced somewhere in the neighbourhood of 20,000 words' worth of brand new material, all of it still preliminary)

This means that I either a) have lots to say, or b) have no idea how to say anything except through gigantic conceptual rants.

On the bright side, I'm gonna have stuff to show other people soon. (Actually already have some, but as soon as I can rewrite/edit down my character and plot summary docs, it'll be a lot better...)

Im gonna jump on this even though Im a few days late. I've had a comic I've been wanting to start for the longest time and I really want to be able to start it by the end of the year, so I'll be darned if this isn't a good excuse. Not entirely sure what my end goal will be for the month though, maybe have a chapter written out?

Sweet deal! Hey, as long as you get something done, right?

I left my laptop locked in my desk drawer in sleep mode overnight like an idiot. I'll get back on track today, generally its batteries are pretty good so it should last long enough for me to write during my breaks.

Didn't get a ton of writing done today, but I finished off the night at 12498 words. I think I'm going to stop posting excerpts because my writing is getting progressively shittier, and it's starting to show.

Time to unwind with some hot cider.

Welp, as usual Youma has left be a whole week behind, but after I get off work tonight and finish up the last few loose ends I need to get done for Youma (mainly posting the recaps of videos played and finalists and video lists ect, and begin verifying addresses for award winners) I think I'm gonna get back into my nano project and see what I can get down on paper tonight, provided the little woman will leave me alone in order to do it....

EDIT: Turns out the little woman wanted to go out. Dinner and Wreck it Ralph was nice but a major distraction. Guess I'll try again tomorrow.

Just hit 15k words. Current protag is going to need a lot of development to become interesting, but that's what this draft is for. She'll come into full bloom by the first real draft.

Good job. I'm gonna do another minute of storyboards tonight, at least.

Spent the last hour and a half writing mostly non-stop. Filled about 5 pages of this legal pad.

Almost at 19k words. That's a good sized buffer that I need. I can feel myself coming up on that midpoint, which is crazy.

Last couple of days weren't very good for me. Not necessarily by the numbers, but I'm really just getting bogged down in detail that noone but me will probably read.

That's actually good pre-writing. If you take care of those details and the write your actual story with those things in your head, it'll show.

Last few days sucked for me creatively too...did some storyboards and stuff, but didn't really get much else done...hurt my foot, my car needs new tires, etc.

So, tonight, when I leave work early and am sitting at the shop while the car gets new tires, I'm gonna bust out a shit-ton of writing. I should have like, at least an hour of good uninterrupted time. The shop has a coffee shop too :3

Last night I wrote 2 pages of script, 7 pages of novel, and came home and did some storyboards. Didn't get much of that done and was pretty tired. Tonight, shopping, cleaning & cooking, then more storyboards.
