The title of this post could also have been The reason why I haven't been posting. Sorry about that, guys.
That's right, you guys, I'm attempting NaNoWriMo for the first time ever. I wasn't going to do it at first, but after seeing so many people decide to do it, I started getting pumped to write, and began outlining a story I have had stuck in my head for a very long time. When I finally finished writing that outline I decided that maybe I could do it. It certainly wouldn't hurt to try.
But as NaNoWriMo itself wasn't challenge enough for me, I had to spice it up by starting on day 13.
I'm crazy, I know.
Day 13 was the day I finished my not very detailed outline. I started out with a three-thousand word outline, and am now powering through my story with over eleven-thousand words written. Don't judge me, I started writing three days ago, guys.
I'm not really sure how this will go, but I'm hopeful.
There's not much I can tell you about the story I'm writing, other than it's fantasy and it will probably have to be separated in more than one book.
You can find my NaNoWriMo profile here.
Are you attempting NaNoWriMo as well? How is it going for you?
Also, if you have any advice as to how you manage writing with everything else in your life, I'd be most grateful. I'm very stressed out right now, trying to write as much as I can, but there isn't always time.
