I'm being a bit of a slacker, and yet I am getting my numbers. I am even a few words ahead, which is a nice thing to go to sleep knowing.

I did find a schtick to work with. I know I said in my blog that I don't like using schtick, but I found something I really like: telling the novel by days. Each day, I tell the story from the POV of one of seven or eight different characters. I am on Day 2 so far, which is actually November 1st. I have an idea what I am delving into November 2nd, but no idea what I am going to do for November 3rd and 4th. I'm sure I will know when I come to it. I also have a character doing NaNo and I am including some of the story she is telling. I like being meta and experimental. This story is certainly delving into that. My initial excitement has evaporated, but I feel there is endurance. The topic is interesting. I already learned a connection between two characters that I hadn't known was there. So I am quite excited about that. I am not going to worry about things, not even the way the characters are talking. I can concentrate on it more when I am there and have the time. Right now, the action of writing daily is pretty freeing. I need to put more concentrated effort in it; however, I am still able to achieve my needed word count so I think that's meaningful.

So far I have attended two write-ins: one at CK and one at the LA library. I so want to just talk to these people. I am intrigued by how interesting everybody is! There are some real movers and shakers and people with potential. There are a bunch of students in the CK group. Three freshmen who are also newbies to NaNo. I want to learn more about the people I hadn't gotten the chance to really talk to and talk more with the ones who I have already spoken with. I want to see where these connections can go. I guess I am a little bit more keyed into networking than I used to be. I like how I am now. I am always thinking about people's interests and skills and how I can be of help to them, or how the things tie to mine. It's a pretty cool thing to be doing. I am glad that I have become more aware of my skills and the connections I already have. It's about organizing. And I really hate organizing. *L* Nothing in my life is quite that way, but organizing brings sense to things. I'll get into organizing when I have a little more time. Well, my writing is pretty organized, though. I have one fill I just put things into.

I have a bunch of things coming up. I am working on a book project in addition to the NaNo. It's Heroes related. If you are a Heroes fan, I may need your help on it. Contact me for details. :D

Another thing is the fundraiser I am doing for NaNoWriMo's parent company The Office of Letters and Light. I am trying to raise $2500USD by Nov 30th. I need some new ways for fundraising because I am not sure about how to reach out to people. I am putting up a few auctions to help pay it, too. I hope to get those up this weekend. Gotta write them first. You can find my fundraising page here

Gah. It's nearing on 3. I think I am going to do a little bit more of writing and then get to bed. Hopefully updates will be more frequent than past years. I have also thought about doing a vlog or a LJ Voice Post thing. We'll see. :D

How are you guys at your NaNos?

I like the variety I was offered. I'm working on one now and am having a lot of fun with it. If you have a drabble request, but don't want to write any drabbles yourself, just give me a request anyway and I will do my best with it. Again, no promises on how good or bad it will be. I'd like the challenge. :)

I have a drabble request. [livejournal.com profile] theemdash couldn't do it. :( I want to see Jim Profit interact with the Senior Partners of Wolfram and Hart. This is what David Greenwalt hinted at if Jim Profit was to be placed into the Angel universe. It makes me very, very happy! I would loved to have seen Adrian Pasdar in the Whedonverse. As far as Heroes alum goes, Leonard Roberts was so good on BTVS as Forest. I just caught an ep with him the other day. Good times.

Another one of those Fandom things that makes me happy--anybody hear about the new John Lennon biopic, Lennon Naked? It stars Christopher Eccleston as John Lennon and Naoko Mori as Yoko Ono. Hehe.

And that was entirely too fannish for my writing journal. *L*
