One Rainy Night – NaNo 2018

I’m writing this while I sit down with my first cup of tea for the day. I haven’t had tea for a little while, especially hot tea. So bear with me while I try to gather my thoughts together so this post can go live today. Heh.

My NaNoWriMo project for this year is titled One Rainy Night. It follows two beings.

Siaer Luca, who also goes by Luc. She is human, trying to find her place in the world, and the story opens up with her driving in a rainstorm until her car has broken down.

Then we have Ellory Fense, but please, call him Fense. He truly dislikes his first name.

Siaer’s car breaks down in front of where Fense lives. From there, the story goes on.

Synopsis on the NaNo site:

One rainy night a young woman’s car breaks down. She finds an old school turned into housing. It looks abandoned…

… It’s not.

I didn’t start writing until day 3 this year. Not by choice, but because I had other things I was dealing with and things in my personal life that I needed and wanted to take care of.

At the end of day 3 I only had 1609 words out of the ideal 5001. I was determined to have 7000 by the end of Sunday which had a goal of 6668. When I stopped writing for the night I had 7971. Almost 1000 words BEYOND what I was aiming for.

I haven’t written yet today, but when I pick my story up I will have a count of 12,015. The goal for today is 11,669 to be on par. I’m hoping to stay at least a day or two ahead of count.

Next week is going to be dedicated to staying ahead in my novel and working on other things that I haven’t had a chance to work on for some time. I’m behind on edits/revisions for Unexpected Moments, and I am planning on working through edits for Meeting Mr. Right in December. We’ll see just how much I can get done among 3 stories now.

Projects I’m currently working on:

  • Posting the 100 Theme Challenge from back in 2009 to my Wattpad account
  • Drafting poems into the Poetry story in my Wattpad account
  • Play project with a friend of mine. We’ve been meeting weekly for this, but our schedule this week got thrown off
  • Revisions and some finalizations for Unexpected Moments
  • Figuring out how to edit Meeting Mr. Right
  • Writing One Rainy Night

I’m dealing with a handful of things in my personal life that will remain with me and the people those things deal with. It’s nothing bad, but I don’t feel like sharing much of my personal life in this post. Maybe another post later on. Who knows, maybe it’ll be the post I inevitably do at the end of the year that has my New Years Resolutions in it. I feel like I should be working on those now, actually…

I have a few things to do and then I’m going to be getting to writing. Peace everyone. And if you’re NaNo-ing, happy writing.
