NaNoWriMo

  There are 25 days until National Novel Writing Month, and hopefully, I will be participating. The goal of NaNoWriMo is to write a novel in 30 days. For the main program, it's 50,000 words. For the Young Writer's Program, you set your own goal. My goal is 25,000 words because it's a novella which I originally intended to be a comic book script. I don't know how to write a script, so I'll start with a novella first.
  My story for this year is an urban fantasy martial artist superhero story. Epic, isn't it? It's going to be a noir feeling story in the modern day, with all the troubles it entails. There's also two warring ninja clans, supernatural evils, and hopefully some deeper meaning.

 Are you doing NaNoWriMo this year?

  1. I believe you have heard about the steampunk mermaids in my NaNovel. :) I'm on the adult site going for the whole 50k.

  2. Yes, I have. It's fascinating.

    My mom won't let me get an account on the adult site, so I'll be on the YWP.

  5. Aren't you Stargirl as well?

    70k is a lot to write in a month. I'd be nervous as well.

    Okay, I'll look into Screnzy YWP.
