Camp NaNoWriMo

As I told you all before, I have joined the camp NaNoWriMo for the month of July. I have pledged to write a novel of about 20,000. At first I didn’t realize how long it was going to be. I just thought 20,000 is not a bad idea for a short novel. I had researched about the writing and I had plans. I had plots, character analysis and everything. I was ready.

Day 1 – I did good till about 200 words and I was like how should I describe the scene. All I had was a concept and to write about just one scene in one chapter takes lots of imagination and lot of creativity. I got scared, seriously scared. Will I be able to do it?

Day 2 – I was super tired because of the heat and words just fail me. I started having doubts but I am going to try my best.

I just want to finish my novel. I can always change the word count to 10,000 and that won’t be bad. I think this one is going to be a very short story. I need a thesaurus, AC ( It is super hot in Seattle, touching 91 degrees ) and some peace & quiet (I am looking at you, kitties). Hopefully after this long weekend I will be back to my writing. I am planning to take a notebook with me during this weekend so that whenever I get time, I could just start writing my novel.

I have been using the Word Online to write the story and it automatically stores in Dropbox which is very convenient. This long weekend is going to be super busy for me since we have plans for everyday. I think I am going to be super tired by the end of the day. I am hoping that I will get back to my writing on Monday.

On another note, I think I get obsessed about some things and I keep buying them. I can’t seem to stop. It started with handbags, makeup, then planner and now handbags again. How do I get rid of this obsessive buying?. I really need to stop. If I continue this my house will be like a hoarders’ house. And I also can’t get rid of stuffs. I tried giving away the handbags I am not using but I just couldn’t do it. I really couldn’t. Wish I get this obsessive about writing novel 

Wish me luck, readers, so that I can finish my novel.
