I don’t know if you guys know about NaNoWriMo.
NaNoWriMo, which stands for National Novel Writing Novel, is a project for people to write a 50,000 words novel in a month. It’s normally during the month of November and I’m planning on participate this year.
That is, depending on my University schedule.
I’ve registered myself on NaNoWriMo last year but didn’t managed to write anything. However, there are some crazy ideas for novels I want to explore and I might use the thrill and rush of NaNoWriMo to develop them.
I have at least three ideas but I can only pick one and write it down during NaNoWriMo. Each idea is different from the other and all of them require a little bit of re-search and patience.
The first idea is a YA Dystopian novel. I’m not going to explain the details because I’m still not sure about them but I can tell you that it’s about people with powers… superhuman powers. Or at least that’s what I’m thinking about. There might be a love triangle – which people normally hate – but that’s something to discuss.
The second idea is a YA Witch one. Still not sure about how the story is going to unfold but the main character will be a girl who is a witch. Probably a Red Witch (still need to figure out the whole witches’ thing…).
And the third and last idea is a YA Urban Fantasy one based on Imaginaerum by Nightwish. This was to be my previous idea for NaNoWriMo but then I moved and the idea slipped through my fingers. It’ll be about dreams and fantasy all mixed up with slices of contemporary issues.
So, you can see how hard D it’s going to be to me to pick up ONE idea and develop it. I was planning on simply laying out the whole idea and then plan it carefully, chapter by chapter.
But I don’t know which idea to choose!!! And that’s the reason I’m not sure if I should enter NaNoWriMo this year.
