Report 57, 3 nammme I only need 3 name!

Yeah I'm done planning my novel, its just that hum... I'm missing 3 name for a group of villain and they are friends with my male main character so I really do need names...even if I kill them 5 scene later XD I find it funny on how much my planning and original idea change so much... I plan a scheduled on how much work per day I would need to finish character bio, sketch and one sentence scene input.

I end up scrapping everything and just work from the top of my head from scratch. GASP Ho men I forgot one character so its 4 names not 3... haha I still should just call him men HO NO WAIT BETTER Guy... XD that works ( may work on a better name later)

Okay on other note today I'm going back to college, I still have the Work safety training for 2 days and after that finish my last project and give it to my teacher. After that going down back home and celebrate the Holidays! With 3 cat and a dog, where one cat is over protective of kittens and she may eat the other old cat and dog to protect kitten...ho boy

it gonna be entertaining, but its not the wurst... the wurst is that I need to leave my overprotective cat there with my parents like that I can go to my boyfriend place to celebrate there.And my cat is an expensive cat XD she need to eat a curtain food because she's allergic to other kind of food, we need to clean her left ear once every week because wax build up and she scratch and blood build up.

/sigh... that's not the wurst... my family will leave the animal alone for like a week because they are going to their new camp...well at least they will bring the dog so only the cats will be there so less head eating there but lots of butt biting and scratching... /sigh

We will see what will happen. I don't want to bring the cat for a 3 hour long ( maybe more we're taking the long way) ride to go to my boyfriend place and bother his parents more.

Anyway I will start packing up I need to leave early today to go back home, its really icy outside and the ride may take a while. And I want to leave before dark. I will post another report on about my writing course soon, I finish the lesson 4 but I need to work on it more so before I work on lesson 5 I will redo the lesson 4

take care,


PS: my uncle die Saturday morning at 11. I will miss the funeral because of college but in a way I'm okay because I don't want to see him for the last time like that, I have good memories and will keep it like that.

Report 56, the days after

So It been 5 or more days now that I won NaNoWriMo. I wrote a 50500 word novel in 28 days! Yeah me! :D True there was days where I couldn't write but force myself to at least have 1000 for the days and when I look at the count I would tell myself " I wrote X number of word, its a lot already I can stop there it still tell me that I can write!" but the next day, at 7 I would be back in front of the computer writing away, forgetting what I previously said. Because it wasn't the number I wanted to achieve, but a finish, start to end, novel.And I did.

But it doesn't end there, ever since does days of NaNoing, it open my mind that yes it is possible to write a daily number of words everyday and finish with a complete first draft of a novel, therefore I sign up to Thinking Sideways, a course to teach people how to make writing your full time career, and as much it is scaring me I am finishing my school year in the same time writing a new novel I am aiming to publish. Thanks to the course I'm taking my planning for scene and developing characters are much improve already. I want to a 90k one plot twist boring story to a 120k interesting adventure with life to death villain vs heroes! I could have menage that without it but not in that speed. The course help you open your subconscious to write as one with you, it help you understand better and use both the sides of your brains.

It show you how to plan and come up with good interesting ideas for novel in a deadline, and much much more. I'm still in the idea month ( its a 6 month course, 1 day a week) and I came up with so many ideas and characters I wish to work more on but I am more focus on the main idea right now.

If anyone interest to know more on the course I'm taking right now, there is a link on the right, click on it, it will bring to a page that explain more in detail the course, who is giving it, how you can benefit it an more.

Other then that I will briefly say a bad news before going on better one. My uncle is probably dieing and only a few more days left. My mom send me a text saying he wasn't looking good, but I only saw it after she called sounding worried asking how class was, I'm pretty sure she was about to say that he will be gone soon, but didn't want to effect my studies. I have two project to finish plus a presentation.It only click in my head after I saw the text a few hours after. I hope he is okay now...

Okay....back to good news. I will place a progress bar on how my novel writing will be going, I plan myself to write 1500 word per day, 5 day a week and to reach my goal it will take me 4 months to write it. After I'm done this draft I will use the free paperback of my novel from winning NaNo and let it rest for a month before the revision test starts. Ho also I forgot to mention, about my course, I am also taking mini plot clinic course which if 7 week and completely free!

and now I'm surfing the Internets for a progress bar so I will leave this as it is

take care!

11/11/2011 -> unfortunately I had to take off the HTTS link because Holly Lisle will close her door to new students, she want to focus more on her writing. I accept her decision even if its sad and took out my link.
