NaNoWriMo: Day 17

Alright, this is my first NaNo post of the year, I think. It might be a little odd to randomly decide to post in the middle of the month, but I've got to update sometime, right?

My novel is about Prince Dev, who has spent almost all of his life trying to prove himself to his Father, and be accepted by him.  Those who truly love Dev had tried to persuade him that he can't be so obsessed with this one thing, but it's useless (of course!).  It takes a new friend, a huge mistake, and the loss of both his father and brother, to make Dev realize that there is more to life than what he had been living and believing.

Amazingly enough, I actually had a basic plot written out for this novel, and I finished it just barely in time for NaNo to begin.  As I have gone on writing, I have been surprised as many plot twists have almost fallen place, and I have been inspired right when I needed to be.

As far as word count goes, I have fallen behind by about 5k, after not writing for a few nights.  Oops.  I'm working on catching it back up, and I still consider myself to be in the way of winning.  If I do, this will be my second, complete first draft!

Are you doing NaNoWriMo?  If so, how is it going for you?


  1. Hi there!
    I'm not doing NaNoWriMo, but a also LOVE writing and have been having such fun (especially today) working on the sequal to my first (completed) novel. It's great that you're getting work done. Congrats!

    Happy Writing!

  2. Sounds like an excellent novel! =) Ours is coming along slowly. We have some catching up to do, also! Oh phooey.

  3. Eyebright! I didn't realize your blog had moved! (I know, am I out of the loop or what?!)

    Keep up the good work! I am not officially doing NaNoWriMo but I am trying to get 50000 words written. So far I am pretty behind! Too many things going. I am also working on a project for the MakeItWithWool competition, so I having to divide my time.
