My name is wildfillysama, and I have a problem with overcommitment.
Last year, I completed Nanowrimo, the writing competition where you try to write a 50 000 word novel in one month, and I intend to do the same thing again this year.The problem? I have a Ph.D. thesis to complete, equestrian exams to study for/sit, a conference to present at, a magazine to run, and Pokémon to level up.
So, this year’s Nanowrimo will be particularly interesting.
I would also like to write something completely different to my usual genre (fantasy). I’m trying to come up with a way that makes poetry, humour and slice-of-life work together. Some horror wouldn’t go astray either. I’ve been reading a lot of Halloween/haunted house threads recently…
In case I get stuck for ideas, or suspect that I’m going down a familiar/boring path, I’m going to try to include 10 “words of the day” from http://www.dictionary.reference.com as main images/themes/things I have to mention somehow. These are:
I have no idea what most of some of those words even mean. This is going to be fun! Will give an update next Monday on how the novel-to-be is going and how much cider has been consumed as a result.
