NaNoWriMo 2010 – Day 6

My entry for this year is titled “The Aryan Wind”…a mixed of espionage, adventure and mystery.

As at today, I managed to crawl about 10,011 words – just meeting the required daily entries of 1,666 words. Compared to last year, this year things have been slow – traveling is hampering the time to sit down and write and then there is the issue of getting a good plot down.… [Click to read the rest] “NaNoWriMo 2010 – Day 6”

NaNoWriMo 2010 – Day 1

The writing event of the year is finally here

Although I don’t have specific storyline for this year’s NaNoWriMo (I guess I will start with some gibberish storyline before fine tuning later), here is an interesting article I picked up on the event that might inspire you:-

(Image source: www.artslink.wordpress.com)

I am sorry for not writing very regularly for the blog.

It is just that I have been busy with work and during the night and on the weekends, I have been “burning the midnight oil” on my novel for the NaNoWriMo 2009. Since I have been concentrating all my free times on this venture, as at todate I have completed almost 92% of the 50,000 words which was required to win the NaNoWriMo 2009 and I still have another 8 days to complete the balance 8% words.… [Click to read the rest] “Nearing 50,000 words”

NaNoWriMo 2009 Update 1

As at todate, have managed to pass the 11,000 words threshold and should be hitting 12,000 words by midnight tonight. Having 2 days off with nothing to do have provided with plenty of free time to extend the number of words clocked.

I guessed I fared better this than last year…

Despite not having a firm plot for this year, I have managed to complete almost 3,600 words on the first day itself. As I keep writing, I managed to get more ideas on how to expand the the current plot.… [Click to read the rest] “First Day NaNoWriMo 2009”

Pre NaNoWriMo 2009

Just one day before the start of NaNoWriMo 2009 and to tell you the truth, I have yet to firm up the plot for this year’s writing month. I have some plots in mind but yet to decide which of it will allow me to write at least 50,000 words.

In the meantime, for the last one week, I have been busy polishing up my NaNoWriMo 2008’s piece titled “The Malayan U Boat”.… [Click to read the rest] “Pre NaNoWriMo 2009”
