NaNoWriMo: It’s Happening!

Guys, I’m all in for NaNoWriMo now.

It’s day three and my ideas are finally flowing.

When I first started, I hadn’t planned on outlining at all, but then I realized that was my problem whenever I had tried to write before. I had no idea what the plot of my story was or what the conflict would be. With all of the exciting little tips and tricks flowing around the internet, I found one that was extremely helpful to me and that was posted by Lisa Bouchard on her website at It was for The Seven Point System and essentially is a tool to help you figure out the major points and twists in your story. As I started writing, I kept all of these ideas in mind and it really helped me shape where I wanted my story to go, but just having the bare bones of an outline also is letting me get a little creative figuring out how to get there.

Now I’m on Day 3 and things are getting exciting. I caught up from not writing much at all yesterday (stupid actual job, making me do real work) and the plot points are starting to come together. Now I’m to the point where I’m so excited about what will happen next – and even I don’t know yet! I’m hoping when people finally read the finished work, they’ll be just as excited as when I was writing it.

I look forward to writing more and I’m sure I’ll update a few more times throughout the month!

    Very exciting! I am hoping that I can get at least that many WPD out while I am on vacation. Today was taken away from me because I am filling in for someone at work even though it was supposed to be my first of 9 days aways from work. So I have been working on a detailed outline all day and it has become 4 pages front and back of outlining! Good luck, keep it up 🙂
