Well, it’s that time of year again; NaNoWriMo. For those of you who don’t know, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. It’s a big event that takes place all over the world throughout the month of November. The object is to write a novel worth 50k words. That’s a lot of words, let me tell you now! The most I’ve ever been able to write is 25k. That was in 2012. Lol

Anyway, usually I try to work on a current novel – usually this involves starting it from scratch and going from there. That or I try to work on a novel that I have been planning out for a while. Well, this year is a little different. I’ve been really unmotivated to write anything more then one-shots recently. It’s kind of got me upset to be honest. Due to this, I decided to try something new this year.

This year I am actually considering two projects. Now, before November, I actually have to make a final decision as to which novel to work one. The first project is something entirely new. I haven’t made a lot of plans with or for it. It’s something I just came up with in the past year. For those who are aware, most of my ideas are at least seven years old or older. Lol. So for me to even consider working on this novel for NaNoWriMo really says something right there.

This project is actually the first book out of a series. The series will only contain two books and this will be the first one. Now, I never in my life have considered any of my novels to have more then one book. They’re all one book and that’s it kind of stories. However, this one will without a doubt have two books. The problem is that I only have the very beginning of the second book planned. I have no idea what so ever about what should happen after the first start. Lol. I guess once I finish book one, I’ll start really thinking and making more plans regarding book two. :) I shouldn’t worry too much about a second book in a series that I haven’t even started the first book on. Lol

Anyway, the book title as well as the series title has already been decided upon. I made my official decision only a few days ago. It will be known as the Bird’s Eye Chronicles. Book one will be called Riddles. I am still considering the title of the second book, however, at this time the title is Their Hearts.

The second project that I am considering is actually not original fiction. It’s a fanfiction. I’ve never, in all my years of participating in NaNoWriMo, have I ever even once considered writing or working on a fanfiction for this event. However, it’s an idea that’s pretty long and really well thought out and it’s a story that I would really like to work on. I’ve actually been wanting to write it out for a long time now and I just haven’t sat down and done it. NaNoWriMo might be the perfect motivation to get it written!

So these are the two are the projects that I am considering working on for NaNoWriMo. When I make a final decision on which one I plan to work on, I’ll let you know. At this point in time though, I am really considering working on the Riddles novel. Who knows though. Knowing me, I’m quite likely to change my mind, as I usuall do. Lol

Anyway, I am really hoping to get a lot of writing done this NaNoWriMo. In past years, I’ve written, on average, less then 10k words, which is really quite disappointing. Only one year did I manage to write nearly 25k words. I really want to write a lot more this year. I want to do a good job and be really proud of myself. I want to work hard and do my absolute best. I don’t want to put it off, procrastinate, or just give up like I have previously. I want to stay on top of it. I want to remain dedicated. :X It’s not going to easy, but this is something that I consider myself passionate about.

So wish me luck and I’ll keep you all updated! :) For those of you interested in following my progress through NaNoWriMo, you can find my account at this location. Good luck to everyone who is participating! :D
