NanoWrimo, is this the end?

20,534 words; Thats how many I’ve written in November. I was really doing well until the laptop I was using broke (still have yet to fix it). I’d like to finish the novel I started but I don’t know if I’ll have time now that I don’t have to dedicate so much to it. Plus, it’s really hard to write at home. So once again:

One more thing

Due to popular demand I will no longer be posting chapters of my NanoWrimo as I finish them. That is all.

Wait…I lied. If you’re bored check this out:


Its a cool looking movie trailer. I’m all stoked on it.

Chapter 2


Word Count: 6763

Before I begin just a quick correction. Last night I was at IHOP not Dennys. They are just about the same thing in my mind except IHOP doesn’t have any old school memories for me.

Anyway, tonight I tried Krispy Kreme. I spent 3.18 and got three dougnuts in addition to my hot chocolate. Not bad considering there is free Wi-Fi there. My only qualm is that the chairs on not comfortable. Despite all that I finished chapter two with some reworkings that caused me to take the story in a different direction than I had originally planned. I just noticed that my chapter countings were off. Chapters 1 and 2 are already posted so here are chapters 3 and 4. Chapter 5 is nearing complition and will be ready tomarrow. I get the feeling that my chapters are really short because I don’t know how to change scenes without starting a new chapter. hmm…

One last sidenote. I think I’m in love with my supporting female character. Shes so awesome.

Without further adue, Voici mon oeuvre en train de se faire!

Chapter 3: Back at Home

As Bordin walked home that night he couldn’t help but wonder by what providence he had been granted a companion such as Steekay. Steekay was everything that Bordin was not. It almost made him wonder if this wasn’t some sort of Fight Club styled illusion. Had he just conjured Steekay up in an effort to escape reality and become someone else?

Books are expensive.

Word Count: 5,184

Today I went to Dennys tonight to focus on my book and it was very effective. I wrote 3,077 words tonight and I like the new direction the book is taking. If I keep this up at the current rate my book will be done on the 20th and I’ll be horribly broke as I spent 11 bucks at Dennys. The second chapter is not yet finished so I won’t post it until it is. It will definitely be done tomorrow. I’m only about a paragraph away but I left early to see about a girl.

That didn’t work.

Anyway, the saga continues with a search for a cheaper place to write. I tried Starbucks the first night. That was $1.80. I should buy cookies and sit in the library.

Btw, I noticed some errors in the first chapter, the whole thing about Haggard being in Harry Potter, I realized today that its Hagred or something. I haven’t ever read Harry Potter.

Nanowrimo

Word count: 2,107
I have Joined the ranks and started my Nanowrimo. I also convinced Gary to start his own and the game has begun. I will be posting Chapters as I finish them up here on the blog. The book is called Why Me?

“What is NaNoWriMo, you ask?

NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. The challenge is to write a 50,000 word novel (about 175 pages) in the 30 days of November. Everyone who finishes wins! You win your name on a list of other people who finished, and certificate (that you have to download and print out yourself), and a “Winner” image you can place on your blog.”-Courtesy of Gthing.net

I haven’t actually even re-read what I just wrote cause I’m tired, maybe I will later but if you read any big faults let me know in a comment or something and Ill fix it. Thanks.

The Prologue

The clouds parted just enough for light to shine on his eyelids. He opened his eyes hoping that the whole ordeal might have been a dream. No such luck. He strained with what strength he had left and tested the bands that held his hands captive behind him. The handcuffs hurt but it was nothing compared to the zip ties that were digging into his skin.
