NaNoWrimo began yesterday

My first day didn’t really go as well as I thought. School was murder, didn’t even have enough to write five sentences. And by the time I got home, either my brain or my health was acting up again. Icouldn’t think properly enough to write.

I did manage to get some words out by night, but they’re so horrible I don’t think I’ll be using them for anything.

Any the story itself was not turning well in my head.

I’m not making any excuse, NaNoWriMo is all about throwing those excuses out of the window, after all. I’m trying to make a decision.

It seems I wil fail at this year’s NaNo, again, for… what? Three years in a row? I never have a good commitment with my stories, always ending up with some unfinished excerpt that isn’t even halfway there. Except for this one I’ve been working on but hardly ever written that I started when I was 6 or something, and is still mutating into something larger, they all fail gloriously.

So I suppose all I can do is either pouring way too much love on one story, or simply giving it too little.

Decision reached.

I’m still gonna join NaNoWriMo, but I’m gonna cheat. And I’m not going to call it that, I’m going to call it… actually, I’m not sure I’m going to call it anything, other than that weird alternative to NaNo.

So, the deal is, for 30 days, I’m going to write (preferebly also 30) short stories, with about the same wordcount goal and with the same system as NaNoWriMo. I don’t care how many stories I’m going to end up with, or even if they ever reach their conclusion or not, I’m just gonna try it.

And another addition to the rule: They have to take place in the same universe as the three stories that I first planned for the actual NaNoWriMo, including that massive fanfic. Whatever the stories might be, they have to be clearly related to any of these three, whether by taking place in the same time, place, or using the same characters.

Who knows? By December I might already have enough to piece together into a novel.
