Vagrants, NaNoWriMo and Me

I’m joining the bandwagon and having a go at NaNoWriMo this year. I’m going to use it to write the first half of the sequel of the novel that I referred to in an earlier post.

The thing is I also wanted to produce flashes over November but I thought it would be too ambitious for me to do both. Then I had an idea, what if I prepared flashes in October and then released them over November (ok, you’d probably thought that already, but I was excited). So I sat down to do just that, wrote one flash, then another.

Good so far.

Then without really meaning to, I started writing a serial called ‘The Vagrant’. The first part of it will go up on Friday and I’m quite excited about it.

I also find it really hard to write. I think it’s because I’m unearthing a world that some deep part of me worked out ages ago but the rest of me is chipping away at, one sentence at a time. That and the style feels a little different from my normal one.

So, roll on Friday. And roll on November, I’m nearly ready for you!

  1. Many interesting things happen by accident, without being planned. Creativity is a funny thing to happen, isn't it?

  2. Good luck with Nano! You're a braver man than I.

    My current #TuesdaySerial is a story I began over 3 years ago then finished in two word-storms over the last few weeks. Sometimes, a story needs time to ripen. Or the MC has to figure out how to tell me what happened. 😛

    • I'll let you know if it's bravery or madness shortly…

      #TuesdaySerial has only recently hit my radar so I'll be checking it out (and your current serial's on my list) very soon.
