NaNoWriMo 2015. Log 3. Catching Up

Another day, another chunk of writing. I didn’t manage to catch up entirely and write all the words I didn’t get in yesterday, but then again I didn’t expect to reach that goal anyway. What I did do was actually write over 1900 words today, which means I’m now less than 1000 words behind on schedule, instead of the 1219 of yesterday. It’s a fairly small gain, sure, but if I keep going at this rate and actually write greater amounts with every passing day, then it won’t be too hard to catch up to where I need to be. Hey, perhaps when next Monday comes around I’m already way ahead! I’m not holding my breath for that to happen, but it would certainly be something. Right now, I’m still quite enjoying my first attempt at NaNoWriMo. The prologue and the first major scene of the first chapter are as good as done. Oh, and we also have some new names! The ‘oppressed people’ are now called Umari and their land Umar. The ‘main militia’ and the ‘people’s government’ are respectively the Umari Liberation Front and the Umari Authority. They’re actually names that have some meaning behind them, rather than just being chosen for how they sound, but I’ll go into that some other time. For now I will be heading for bed so I’ll be fresh and well-rested before returning to tomorrow’s writing duties!

Good writing, goodnight, and until next time! ^_^


Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.
