NaNoWriMo Update #2

Hey there, guys. Thought I would share my progress so far. As of posting, my word count is at 20,081.

My character has conquered his initial goal. Now, on to the next one.

Only problem is that I’m sort of losing the will to write, but that’s just part of being a writer. šŸ˜‰ I’m still pushing through, though, hopefully the passion will return soon.

Good luck to everyone, keep on writing!

NaNoWriMo Update

Hello there, fellow NaNoers and blog readers. I broke through the ten thousand word mark Friday. Yes! As of posting this, my word count is at 10,496.

But, there has been a slight hiccup in the story. A new character has superseded someone I made up weeks ago! I had no prior plans to do this, but really, the basic plot stays the same, with just a few slight differences.

Right now I am in Chapter 4 and still in what I call to be the “First Act”. Not that I’m still in the first scene, but I have three sort of “pinch points” that change the direction of the story at different times, as well as slightly different goals for the MC.

I may bump up my goal to maybe thirty-five or forty thousand words; I’ll just have to see.

Good luck to all of you.

Keep on writing!

NaNoWriMo Project

So, this year for NaNoWriMo I was going to write the third book in the Boy Buglers Series, but plans have changed. šŸ™‚

I had this idea for a futuristic, medieval, dystopian. I’ve only ever read one dystopian, soooo, it’ll be interesting to see how this’ll work. Right now it is titledĀ Stronger than the Sword.Ā 

So far I have some basic plot points, the interior conflict for the main character, as well as names and the beginning character sketches for my two most important characters.

October is the preparation month and then November will be the writing month. Though I might not finish the rough draft in a single month. Especially, if I make it a full length novel! (50,000 or more words I believe)

I also need to begin the edits onĀ Retreat, but I’ll have to see if I can do both projects. If I can’t,Ā RetreatĀ may have to be put off until later.

How about all of you guys? Do you have an idea for your book this year? Have you begun plotting and figuring out the characters? I would love to hear about your projects in the comments below.

Happy NaNoWriMo, it’s just one month away!

Writing for His glory,

David B. Hunter
