NaNo Day 24 Shout Out

November 24th, 2008 (12:11 am)

current mood: blank

And it's now Day 24 for NaNo! By the end of today, you should have reached 40k! The official word counter will be activated starting tomorrow, so rather than seeing green, we'll soon be seeing purple. ^o^

For some reason my NaNo suddenly decided to become even more complex today, and not only am I stuck with another plot twist on my hands, I'm only into day 3 of the whole situation. >.> Hopefully, things will clear up in another day or two plus a bit more time at the end, but... this silly twist means massive changes to the earlier parts as well. *sigh* That's okay, I'm having a horrible time trying to *read* what I've written. All the weird typos is making for some really hard deciphering. >.<;; At least with English, it's not too difficult to figure things out, but Japanese...... Ah well. That's for later.

And for everyone participating, please remember to double check your NaNo user profile's timezone setting. This is especially important for us folk who go through Daylight Saving Time. The system doesn't auto change for it, and must be manually adjusted. Oh, and now would also be a good time to back-up your story somewhere. ^_^

Anyhow, sound off!

(FWIW, I'm at 45 152 at the start of the day. Two to three more days for me to cross the finish line. Yay! And who knows how many more words to *finish* the story. *sigh*)

November really passed fast and now I have to realize that I haven't written even a half for my NaNo story. I should force myself to write... somehow. :D
But at least I hope that next year my English skills would be a little better and my muse wouldn't die all the time. :D

Anyways, good luck with your fic! :3 I am happy for those who can keep writing all the time. It's really awesome! ^_^

Yikes! Curse real life and other things that get in the way. :P Are you writing in English (a second/other language)? I'm learning first hand how frustrating it can be to do something like NaNo in a language other than your main. ^^;;

It may still be possible to fight your way through to the end. You never know. ^_^ (I managed to dash through the end last year, but am finding such sprints difficult to do this year. ^^; )

Hang in there! Good luck!

Yesh, they are already cursed. *laughs* English is my other language. ^^ Yeah, and I bet that writing in Japanese is much more harder. ^^;;

Meh, I don't know. I will e happy if a write a half of it. ^^ And then I will try harder next year.

But maybe I have an idea why the story doesn't want to be written! Maybe Bou-san doesn't want to get hit by a alarm clock which was threw by a half-awake Naru! >8DD

Thanks :3
