NaNoWriMo 2014
« on: November 01, 2014, 10:32:14 am »
So, November is upon us once more, can it really be twelve months since were here last?
Anyone from Learn Na'vi entering this year?







I shall be adopting my usual stance of hiding from the world, at the bottom a well, until December 1.  ;) ;D

I don't participate. After 150-200 words, I would run out of ideas (which means that I will fail at school :'().

I don't know how do you writing stories, but a story isn't written by tons of ideas. I did it by this way:
One need only an idea about what the story is, which type of story you want/have to write and what role should protagonists/characteres play in a story. Before writing the main story, write a concept or, if you have less time, write a short note about the most important points that your story should have. Also, place most interesting/important elements of a story wisely: don't put them only in the beginning or write them "all at once". Then, you will need only creativity* to write all the sentences as a well-readable story that will have way more than 200 words.
The same also for school works and in exams. It is possible to write a concept/notes before writing the main story (I did that in my exams with not nice time limits, but it helps a lot).

Scary how fast time passes, isn’t it?
Yes, I take part. Not sure whether I have you in my writing buddy list… :-\

I do, as you can see :D
From the ‘old gang’ only Paul (aka Puvomun) is in the mix, as far as I can see.

I won’t say anything about how to write a story. There are so many methods and how people approach a story or writing in general than there are drops in the sea. Everybody is different. Everybody approaches the task in their own way. I’ll just say, you have to try it to know how it feels :P

From me as well, ma Alyara! :)
You were greatly missed :(

Well, I did menage to complete the word count but to be honest I’m not that satisfied with the result. For some reason, it was quite hard this year to bring myself to write. There were days when I didn’t write at all. I hate it when that happens but I guess I cannot help it.  :-\
