NaNoWriMo 2017



So it's almost here. That time of the year where my anxiety level goes through the roof and I start to question my own insanity... oh don't worry, I'm just talking about NaNoWriMo. I'm sure everyone know what that is but just in case you don't, let me explain.

It lasts the whole month of November. The goal is to write 50,000 in that month. Yeah, lots of words in a short amount of time. I often find myself deciding if I should run away into the middle of nowhere so I have an excuse for not writing but I just can't do that. It's not in my nature.

I've actually made it the last two years I've done NaNoWriMo... which is also the only years I've done this. So I feel very proud of myself and I hope to keep that up.

Though usually I'm better prepared. This time, all I got is the simple plot which may change as I'm sure I like everything yet.

It's about a girl whose mother remarries and that leaves her and her younger sister to deal with four guys as the mother and father jet off for their honeymoon. The sister is a lesbian and one of the brother's is gay. They don't get along very well at all. Our Main girl: Raven, starts to develop feelings for one of the brothers but doesn't know the secrets his family hides. On the plane ride, their parents are killed.... and things start to heat up. Raven is thrown into a world she never knew existed, all the while trying to find the money to keep the family home and make sure her sister is safe and sound before she goes off to college.

Ugh, see what I mean? It's freaking everywhere. I am still trying to put the pieces together and figure out how I want to end this story... if it's a standalone or if it's a series. I don't know and it makes me want to rip my hair out... or cry in my bed.

So will you be joining in for NaNoWriMo? What's your idea if you are? Let me know below!

  2. I think I'm going to actually do NaNoWriMo this year! I've failed any other time I tried to do it but I'm really dedicating myself to basically no social interaction to get this done.

    I really like your story idea! Sometimes it's a good idea to only have a loose outline in case anything doesn't work out or you really want to change something mid-story. Best of luck (although I'm sure you don't need it!) :)
