Apollymi's JulNo 2013


I'm sad to say that I don't yet have a title for my JulNo. I've only been working on it a few days. I do have my four major characters... and of course I had to go and pick names that are hard to spell. Why did I have to have four characters with Gaelic names? Why???

Better now. Words will happen. JulNo will be one. I'm also duplicating this story onto Camp NaNoWriMo August edition.

(And is it just me, or does it seem like the NaNoWriMo group is trying to take over all the months?)

Sounds fun!

Not sure if it's a typo (think it prolly is), but Camp is July this year and not August. I was gonna take the easy way out with Camp, but I followed someone else and gave myself a 30K goal with another story for Camp. XD

Yep, totally a typo. Last year the second camp was in August, so that is apparently where my brain is this year.

I don't know why I'm using Gaelic when I don't speak it and I don't know anyone who speaks it. I'm working with a PDF version of an etymology of Gaelic book (from 1877) because that's what I could find. Clearly I like making things hard on myself.

First night of writing was fairly productive. I still lack a title for this novel, but I did manage to top 1700 words. It's not quite a buffer yet, but it's well on its way to there.

But now... sleep is required.

01 July: 1764 words

So far, so good. Characters are behaving and plot is advancing as it should be. I still have a tendency to share way more details and background stuff than maybe I should, but that might have something to do with my love of Stephen King and Dean Koontz books.

A short and precise writing style shouldn't be a problem! I'm guilty of one myself, but I like it that way. It takes more skill to describe the mere necessities than to describe everything, but in the end it's nicer for the reader. Of course, it's not that useful when trying to win a WriMo, but I think it's worth it!

Just keep going! :)




Always keep the faith.

A bit more background fleshed out, and character development is going well. I'm still working on building up a surplus for the end of the month, but it's slow going. And now I need sleep.

Still digging the characters, though I think Saoirse might end up being an issue. We'll have to see on that one. Still working on building a surplus.

And I hate fireworks, especially when they go up three in the morning.
