I am so ready for the NaNoWriMo to start! I have characters and an opening scene. Otherwise I am just writing by the seat of my pants, like my title says. I want to write 50,000 words with days to spare. This is going to be a challenge, I think. I don't have any outline. I don't even have a rough idea for an ending. Don't even know what is going to happen in the following chapters. Even without a lot, I feel really good about completing this. The story is interesting enough to keep my attention throughout the month. The one thing that is great about not having an outline is that I'm going to be surprised. Maybe that isn't the best thing to do for writing, but during NaNoWriMo, surprise is a treasure.

I've compiled a list of ten things that I want to accomplish over the next month.

Hopes for 2009:

1.More than 50,000!
2.Writing with days to spare. Wanna have smooth sailing
3.Have a completed novel by the end of NaNoWriMo
4.Meet new people and make more friends
5.More confident about my writing/finishing tasks
6.Have a deeper understanding of the world/greater knowledge of things (places)
7.Mar journals, tea, and music!
8.The energy to keep writing
9.Will edit and try to publish at a later dateā€”in December?
10.Be more involved with community

Though I am a bit tired now and could go to sleep, I'm staying up so I can start on my NaNo. I want to get the 1667 words before I go to sleep.

I have a title! And I have a character's name and a basic idea about her! I now can brainstorm! :D :D
writerfangirl: ([bathtub confessional])
I've had this icon for a few years now. I've always liked the idea of writing in the bathtub--having previously used pen and paper on many occasion--but now, for the first time, I type to you from my bathtub! :D Maybe this will be a regularity come NaNo time. We'll see when that happens. Typically, I find that my plans I set and the actual events do not match each other. Nothing goes according to plan. Hm. Maybe it's a good thing I haven't much of a plan. My only plan this year is to meet people for write-ins twice a week. That's something. Outside of that, I imagine there will be much writing done at my house. I don't know if I will take part in sprints, or if I will simply write when I'm solitary. I really don't know. I can't wait to see what happens when I'm there.

What would I like to write about? What would make me happy to write about? What do I want to express to others?

What would really make me happy is finding something that makes me happy. Sounds like a friggin impossible task to me. Stuck in a loop. Some creative freewriting is in order. And meditating. And some really good sleep.

My parents bought me a laptop this year! A few days ago, actually. I am so in love with it. It's shiny. I'm still getting used to the setup. Mainly, I'm enjoying the freedom of not being tired to a desk greatly. I mean, I can actually type in the bathrub like my icon now! Hehe. That's cool. Just not when taking a bath, of course. Cause...that's very much a collision waiting to happen.

Music...I'm still building my library. I'm looking for suggestions. I'll try anything, but to give you a taste of what I like, here are a few performers: Linkin Park (especially "Shadow of the Day"), Death Cab for Cutie, Coldplay, James Blunt ("Tears and Rain"), Evermore, and Snow Patrol.

The big thing though, I was incorrect about what I wanted to write. As of right now, I have no idea. I'm sure that will change between now and the 1st, but I haven't had that spark of inspiration to figure out what that's going to be. Can't wait to see how that happens and what I end up writing about, though! :D
