    @evelyn Yeah, I was getting annoyed for you. πŸ˜† So glad it got cleared up before NaNo.


    @emgc
    Oh, wow, so you’ve been at it for a long time!! That’s so exciting that you’re finally getting to do it now! 🀩

    Aww, thanks!!

    Outline Update

    Yesterday: I finished Chapter 5, wrote Chapter Six, and started on Chapter Seven. It wasn’t a lot but I’m glad I got that much done. πŸ˜€

    Today: I’m currently finishing up Chapter Seven and hoping to get at least Chapter Eight done as well. I’ll see how it goes.

     

    Scenes I’m Excited About: One of my favorite characters gets introduced!! So that’s cool…and then I’m also looking forward to writing about this cool, crazy scene where some cool, crazy stuff happens but I’m not saying what because, you know, secrecy. πŸ˜‰

    Why haven’t I found this topic before now? NaNoWriMo is in two days!

    I’ll post a synopsis of my novel later. πŸ˜€πŸ“

    Prep Update:

    I only outlined one scene today. And I mentally outlined it last night after I’d gone to bed, so it doesn’t even exactly count. But it’s another scene, so still progress. πŸ˜›

    Most exciting scene:Β Well… there’s only one candidate. But I do think it’s going to be a fun scene. It’s a combat scene and one of the characters is cut off from his weapon and another has to make do with a pseudo-weapon and those are both really fun tropes to me, so I think it’ll be cool.

    @evelyn @eden-anderson Aw, thank you both so much! That’s really encouraging. πŸ™‚ <3 I’m just trying to find my way around here; which page are your posts about your nano novels?

    @evelyn

    @eden-anderson I’ve been doing little things. I have no idea where the plot goes. I have characters I don’t understand at all and have no idea how they are going to play in. I’m planning to just pants it I guess. You know-

    But wait.

    IT STARTS TOMORROW???

    I thought it started in two days….??

    *screams*

    *runs around in circles*

    πŸ˜† ohhhh I’m going to wither and wilt this month. Enjoy Christmas without me.

    Hello! I’m also late to the party πŸ™‚

    This will be my third (?) attempt at Nano, but the first one that I’ve decently planned for so I’mΒ reallyΒ hoping for a bit more success this year…

    Synopsis:
    When her friend (and new brother-in-law) is kidnapped, Diana, a disabled princess, must use her still-developing air magic to save him.Β 

    Not a very long synopsis, sorry!

    I’m excited for this thread, I think it could be the exact encouragement needed to push me over the line (hopefully!).

    @jenwriter17 Oh I guess I forgot to introduce mine. πŸ˜›

    Well, it goes something like this.

    *clears throat*

     

    She was born without wings.

    He was born deaf.

    The man was cursed, but he was not born that way.

     

    And then has a bunch of other random things thrown in there like a society that lives in treehouses hundreds of feet above the ground and never go down. Or at least rarely. There are fog monsters below. There’s a magical ship with no crew. And an old magician in the woods that is said to be able to cure ailments, but has disappeared. The deaf boy wants to become a doctor. The girl without wings wants to follow in her crazy uncle’s footsteps to explore beyond the treetops, and the old sailor who is cursed wants nothing but to wither up and die. And then I have a vague idea about a political scandal that only this bard knows – who is on the run from being kidnapped (or killed) – but who also is covered in scars (physically and figuratively) because of a sickness like small pox that went through his village and killed most of the people including his fiancΓ©, and he barely survived and is basically a little lonely whimpering puppy. And is now super depressed and traveling but can’t seem to write any songs.

    Yeah. Something like all that. πŸ˜›

    And maybe a quest in there somewhere…?

    *shrugs*

    πŸ˜† Who knows.

    @evelyn Your story sounds awesome! πŸ˜€

    When her friend (and new brother-in-law) is kidnapped, Diana, a disabled princess, must use her still-developing air magic to save him.


    @corine
    Ooh, interesting. Can I ask what her disability is? (I’m just curious.) Still-developing magic is super fun! πŸ™‚

    @corine Welcome! Sounds like an exciting project :D.


    @evelyn
    I love all the different characters you have! I hope you find a way to put them all together. πŸ˜€


    @jenwriter17
    Welcome Jenna! πŸ˜€ Did Mari make that profile photo for you? Because I love it. <3

    And your novel! *gasps* So fabulous. I’m loving the aesthetics, too.


    @eden-anderson
    *Falls in love with the concept of this ranger/ex-convict/vagabond because who can’t love a ranger/ex-convict/vagabond* I hope you get some clarity for the plot!


    @anne_the_noob14
    Thanks Livi! Lol hey, three weeks of prep is better than no prep at all.


    @emgc
    I do feel ready, at least mostly! Which is strange. I mistrust the feeling. XD

    *hopes she got everyone*
