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
For my class Industry Overivew (Industry Overview explores the nature of the writing industry. It will explore experienced practitioners and experts from different aspects of the industry.) I have to write about all the people who visited the class and spoke about the profession that they are in. AND SO HERE IT IS! Considering my blog is about writing, and my life, and how I go about being a young adult in the brand new world I thought I’d put it here. c: I hope whoever is reading this finds it interesting. It’s under a read more, and names / what they do is listed.

Okay so since my course ends in two weeks (wow, two weeks) and all my things are due this week this is THE LAST BLOG POST I’M MAKING! … kidding, I actually like blogging if that makes sense? I’ve kind of always wanted to blog anyways, so this blog gave me a good opportunity to blog of sorts. Okay so this entry should have a theme like my other blog entries do, except I’ve already had a blog entry on depression and sort of death… hum.
