I just finished my NaNoWriMo novel! I won! I won! I managed to write 50,290 words of pre-historical crime fiction in 30 days! That's 67 pages! And it doesn't even suck all that much!
*collapses into happy heap of squee*

And I gots a shiny to prove it!

...oh, you want to read the end? Sure, here we go:

I think I have a case of writer's schizophrenia. Not writer's multiplicity - I have enough of that already ;).

What brought  me to consider this? Easy. The fangirl voice. The part of me that's a rabid fangirl, and loves non-canon OTPs. Oh, not the totally not canon OTPs, I leave those for the really rabid fangirls. But the "this was never explicitly stated, but you know, there really are a few hints that char X and char Y could really hit it of, if only circumstances had been different".
That fangirl part of me has informed me that one day, it would like to write an AU version of the NaNo Novel, in which there is a happy ending for Nia and Nehar. Preferrably one that sets a firm "x" or "/" between them, as in "Nia/Nehar" :P.
Well, I have shut it back in its den for now (after all, the plot demands human sacrifices!), and if it's nice, it will get a hint of anthropologist romance at the very end ;).

One thing I love about NaNoWriMo is that they get these really great, famous authors to send out a pep talk to the participants via e-mail.
Because it really does lift me up to know that even Neil Gaiman suffers from this. This "omg my plot is not good enough, my characters suck, I should just forget the whole thing". Imagine that. Neil fucking Gaiman. Great, huh?

I shall now return to my regularly scheduled hacking up of words that I call writing...

Edit: Spiffly graph showing that with my current writing speed, I'll need a full week more time to complete 50.000. Le sigh.
My NaNoWriMo Progress
sermocinare: (The trouble with magic)
It's day three and I'm running into the same problem I ran into last year. The lack of the plot. Only this year, it's combined with something that is driving me absolutely crazy: the insane idea to switch stories, and write something else instead. Because, well, there is another story that has been lying around in my head and would practically write itself aaaaaaaaargh why didn't I do it from the beginning??? But, if I switch over to the other one now, I'm going to feel bad. I'm going to feel like I'm leaving my puppy (the current story) out to die in the cold... also, it does have its moments, and I like being able to switch between the two storylines and stuff. Sigh. A loser is me. For trying to write a murder mystery where all I know is that yes, we do have a victim, but we don't know how she got there. We being both my forensic anthropologist main chars and myself. I guess I'll just have to hope that Nia will lead the way.

Dear muse no.1(you know who you are, baby):
I promise to write your biography for NaNo next year, mkay? But please, shut up now.

Dear inner critic:
stfu bastard!!!

Didn't find the time to write on Friday *sigh*. Too much to do. Also, how am I supposed to let people know my current wordcount if I can't access the website? Bah. Oh, who cares about wordcount right now, anyway. On to the story!
