My Novel Is Complete But I Have Not Yet Reached 50,000 Words?

by evilnymphstuff

So yesterday as I reached around 46,000+ words, I surprisingly typed:

THE END

And I still had at least 4000 words to write so as to reach the final 50,000 word goal for NaNoWriMo.

NaNoWriMo: It’s All Right To Take Your Time

by evilnymphstuff

We have only one month, 30 days, to write a whole novel of at least 50,000 words. That means at least 1,667 words per day. For many, this sounds like an impossible challenge. For others, they know they can do it, because they’ve done it before. And for a few, it is way too easy and the word count exceeds the 50k limit quickly.

But whether it’s a piece of cake or of rock to you, we all have this tendency of rush and urgency when it comes to NaNoWriMo.

Late For NaNoWriMo? No Worries!

by evilnymphstuff

On the 1st November, instead of attacking the blank page and starting this ruthless challenge of writing 50,000 in a month, I finished my last two exams papers and ended up sleeping. It was only yesterday that I started to write, and my NaNo statistics are well below the expected word count… for the time being.

Are you in the same situation?

Getting to Know More About My Characters…

by evilnymphstuff

I usually plan my characters first, before going on to the plot, when I write a story. Sometimes when I get a great idea – great for me LOL – I note it down of course, then I let myself dive into a whole new universe…

I sort of enter a relationship with every of the characters I made up and as I get to know more about them, I slowly build up a plot that will maybe never be written – haha, because I’ve never thought of seriously writing a novel before I met NaNo.

Ramblings and Shopping Haul of a 16-year-old girl

by evilnymphstuff

Heya! My parents celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary on the 17th November :D yeahh!!

So we all went to stay at my grandma’s so that we would be able to do some shopping in town the next day. A new shopping mall has been inaugurated in October but I didn’t have time to go there because of my exams, but on the day that I was taking part in my last exams paper, my friends and I quickly headed to the mall to have a look :) The mall’s called Bagatelle:

And today I went there for a second time… still for visiting! lol it’s far bigger than our usual malls so… I didn’t buy that much and moreover we also went shopping in town itself. Anyway still, I’m going to do a haul – ’cause I love those! ^^

Nano? Are you still with me?

by evilnymphstuff

If you have been following me on Twitter you might have noticed that… well I haven’t tweeted much these days and neither did I posted much on my blog because I had a full week of depression + exams + keeping up on NaNo.

Fortunately NaNo wasn’t that much of a problem, only that it really used up all my spare time! :P

Anway this will be a short post…

Everyday I’m trying to write at least 2000 words instead of the usual 1667 so that you’re safer… :) and also because I discovered a horrible thing about Microsoft words:

The word counter is terrible!
