Hello, yes, I’ve decided to talk about Nanowrimo again because, hey why not? This time I’m going to talk about Plantsing where they combine planning and pantsing (planning is essentially you outline your novel to a T and when day 1 of nano comes around – you’re already writing. A pantser is someone who won’t plan at all and just go with the flow, or they can wing it), thus a planster is someone of the two, who might look for one thing somewhere and another thing somewhere else.
So it’s been a while right? Here’s a tag that I really want to do based on Nanowrimo (I’m doing it again this year (I guess this is my announcement aside from Facebook), I might actually do a few blog posts about what I’m doing, but this is the tag so there you go~). This was originally posted by Kristina Horner (link to the original video).
I didn’t post last week because I was busy writing, and by busy writing I mean I avoided posting, and also I was busy writing. But today is day 16 and I’m at 34,062 words (past day 20 but 938 words from day 21’s word count). The thing is, I’m proud of myself, I’ve written more in my 2016 novel compared to my 2015, 2014, 2009 and 2008 novels. 2015 novel came to 17,284 at day 18 (word count for that day is 30k), 2014 novel came to 20,762 at day 22 (word count for that day is 33,333), 2009 came to 66 words not too sure at what day and 2008 came to 57 words also not too sure at what day.
I talk about NaNoWriMo a lot (sometimes I’ll just write it as Nano or Nanowrimo because of #effort), I have three posts about it on my blog, with one written two months ago. I’m eating that stuff up when it comes to blogs about Nano and YouTube videos (seriously, when you search Nanowrimo on YouTube from my account, all of the videos are deemed watched, even if they’re from 5 years ago, I might learn something useful from them).
I love writing, I mean, okay, I have this blog so I can write so that doesn’t make any sense, but that’s not the point of this blog entry. The point of this blog entry is to talk about NaNoWriMo! Because hey I did that last year and I even wrote a blog entry about it (two actually, but I’ll link 2015’s version). Continue reading
It’s been a year (more like 11 months and 29 days, or 363) since I first posted about NaNoWriMo. Last year, I didn’t win which sucks! I got to 20,762 words, and sure it’s not 50k but it’s 20k and I was pretty proud (well still am), my 2008 novel only got 1,724 and my 2009 novel got 2,000. I skipped 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 because of class. This year, it’s going to be different I only do class two days a week and I now am a volunteer worker at my old school library probably once or twice a week. Though the minimum word count to get to 50k on the 30th is 1,667 which is pretty easy mind you.
One class I’m taking is a class on promoting literature in libraries. Literature, according to Google the definition of literature is of multiple things:
a) Written works, especially those considered of superior or lasting artistic merit.
b) Books and writings published on a particular subject.
c) leaflets and other printed matter used to advertise products or give advice
