NaNoWriMo Part 2

Monday, November 29, 2010

I did it!  Woot!  I completed my novel for NaNoWriMo 2010.  I'm so excited that I finished it, because let me tell you it's huge.  96,239 words, lots of sleepless nights writing that.  But I really liked my characters, I loved my plot lines.  And I had such a great time doing this.  Really a sense of accomplishment to know I finished it.  Of course when I started out I had no idea it was going to turn out so long.  My characters just sort of had a mind of their own and I just had to follow them.

So now it's time to look forward to December and my next project.  Erin at Now THAT'S A Trot! has been doing NaBloPoMo during November, the goal being to post every day for a month.  Now I loved the idea of the challenge but no way would I have been able to do both that and NaNoWriMo in the same month.  So I'm going to take up the blog challenge for December.  One post (at least) everyday of the month.  Since I sort of stole the idea from Erin, I'm going to use her prompts (with some minor modifications)

  1. Intro, recent pic, 15 facts
  2. Meaning behind your blog name
  3. Your first love
  4. Your parents
  5. Your siblings
  6. Picture of something that makes you happy
  7. Favorite movies
  8. Favorite books
  9. Favorite TV shows
  10. A place you've traveled to
  11. A picture of your friends
  12. Something your afraid of
  13. What you believe
  14. Your goals
  15. A picture you love
  16. Favorite quotes
  17. Your dream house
  18. Something you're looking forward to
  19. Something you regret
  20. Something you miss
  21. Nicknames
  22. Something you are grateful for
  23. Favorite city
  24. Favorite vacation
  25. Something you've learned
  26. Put your iPod on shuffle, first 15 songs
  27. Last 5 books you've read
  28. Pets
  29. Something that stress you out
  30. 3 wishes
  31. A picture
Now you'll still be getting regular updates about X, Kaye and all the other ponies, not to mention anything else that might be on my mind.  These posts will just be in addition to that.  I think this will be a good exercise for me.  Especially because I know I'm bad sometimes about updating regularly.  I know I will sometimes skip weeks at a time, and I'd like to update more often than that.  Maybe doing this challenge will get me to keep up with the more frequent posting even after the month is up.  

So keep an eye out for the first post on Wednesday.  In the meantime, I will hopefully have a weekend riding update for you.
