Yay! Thank you @eden-anderson for starting his thread!!
Guys it’s sooo close! 😳😱😆 We can do this!!! Here’s some chocolate for everyone. 🍫🍫🍫
LETS DO THIS 🎉October 27, 2019 at 6:51 pm #99563
Yesterday I only outlined two scenes of my NaNoWriMo project (though I outlined two chapters of my background project, which might serve as my NaNo fallback), but today I’ve gotten through a total of about a chapter and a half! I’ve outlined a little ways into chapter 9 (out of maybe 15?), so… progress. Still not as much as I’d like, but definitely progress.
Scene I’m most excited to write: Yesterday I outlined a scene with a few of my favorite characters having a conversation that will hopefully give some cool insight into their relationships and into another character, so I’m pretty excited to write that scene.

@anne_the_noob14 Great minds think a like, I guess! 😛
*passes pumpkin spice cookies around* *sees there aren’t any drinks yet* *runs off and brings back a big pitcher of raspberry hibiscus lemonade*
That’s just what we were missing! Perfect! Many thanks. 😄 But we need to get some Apple Cider in here. *disappears*
Thanks for telling us about your story, Anne! It sounds cool!! The mystery vibe is real. 😀
*prepares to spam your inbox come November* Are you sure you want this? 😜
@edmund-lloyd-fletcher They all sound cool, but I’ll pick #1. 😀
@r-m-archer Great ideas! Let do this!
@evelyn Truly a pleasure, madam! *sweeps off hat dramatically*
Guys it’s sooo close!
*completely loses self-composure* I’m going to DIEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! 😱😱😱

Progress is progress is progress is progress! You go girl!!
I didn’t get any outlining done today because I was busy all day (literally ALL DAY) but I’m hoping to put the beat down tomorrow. We’ll see how it goes…😐🙃🤞

@eden-anderson If you need me to, I can shoot you a reminder at some point tomorrow. But either way… *high fives* You’ve got this! 🙂

Are you saying I’m not persuasive enough??
What do I need to do? Throw chocolate at you??October 27, 2019 at 9:38 pm #99581
@eden-anderson *thumbs up* Will do. 🙂

*gasps* I CAN’T BELIEVE I FORGOT APPLE CIDER OMW!!! Thanks for getting it! 😛
Thanks! I’m a little scared cause the last, and only other, time I tried to write a mystery, it ended up being five pages of really badly written Sherlock Holmes fanfiction. :/
Yes! Please do! I’m gonna need all the reminders I can get!
@r-m-archer Ooh, nice! So, I’m curious… How do you go about outlining? This is the first time I’ve tried to actually write one seriously, and I’m wondering how much different people’s methods vary.
I’m working on what I hope is the final, or almost final, stage of my outline. ( @wordsmith Exactly what all else am I doing after this?) Buddy’s been coaching me through it, which has been helping more than I’d like to admit 😛 (Thanks again!!)
Uhm… What else… Yeah. That’s that. Oh yeah! Scene I’m most excited to write! That’d probably be actually just about the whole couple of first chapters, honestly. Where I introduce the setting and characters, kinda let you get to know them, etc. I really like my MC, so I’m excited for the part where I introduce him! 😀 😀

*jumps in late*
@eden-anderson This thread is a grand idea! 😀 What is your novel about?
@emgc I have to be honest, I didn’t do much with my last nano novel either. I didn’t even finish it. *hides face*
@r-m-archer Your WIP sounds epic! 😀
@anne_the_noob14 *munches on the cookies* Oooo, your book sounds like a fun murder mystery!
@jessi-rae You got this, Jess! Slay that draft!
@edmund-lloyd-fletcher Those all sound like they would be fun to write, but the first one’s story world is fascinating! I cast my vote for that one.October 28, 2019 at 12:07 pm #99596
My nano novel is a title-less, epic fantasy that follows a handful of characters and their quest to stop an empathetic antagonist from purging the world. Handling multiple POVs is always a challenge for me, so this Nanowrimo will be exciting. 😀 I’ve been prepping for about two months, so I’m dying to start.October 28, 2019 at 12:31 pm #99598
@gabriellepollack Thanks! It’ll be fun, all right… For me. Can’t say the same for my characters… *tries to laugh evilly in the back of throat* *ends up choking* *reaches out feebly for apple cider*
Ayyy join the “I’ve got a WIP but I have no title” crew!! Your WIP sounds awesome!
*sees that you’ve been prepping for months* *laughs nervously, eye twitching* I’ve been prepping for, say, three weeks…
I GOT DIS, Y’ALL. WE ALL GOT DIS. WOOOOOO!!!
