Let’s Get Ready To WriMo!

That time of the year is fast approaching once again! That time when we put everything else aside for an entire month and just write, write and write again! Yes, about two more weeks and this year’s NaNoWriMo will be kicking off!

For those of you blinking there eyes, completely unaware of what I’m talking about: NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. Each November writers from all across the globe will strive to finish a 50,000 word long novel in a mere thirty days. No hourse of thinking, no editing, no procrastination: just writing and finishing that novel of yours!

If you reach the goal in the set time you’ll be among the proud group able to call themselves NaNoWriMo winners! This isn’t a competition, though. The goal is simply to write your novel and your only “opponents” are the word count and time. There’s even a major community – on a global, national and in some places even local level – for seeking and offering help with writing, inspiration, moral support, talking to other participants, and all kinds of other things one might suspect from a big, supportive writing community.

As you might recall I participated last year and, despite it being far from a cakewalk, I succeeded in passing the 50,000, and then some, in time and I did it while have a really good time. My very first participation and victory felt incredibly inspiring and invigorating and I considered it such a major success that I decided back then that when November would roll around the next year I would be there to take part again!

So here I am, two weeks before the big start. Like last year I started a bit late with preparations, but unlike then I already have a decent grasp on what I intend to write. For now all I’m telling is that it’s a major departure from last year’s rather serious and somewhat politically charged story. The details, though, oh no! I don’t even have most of them myself! I mean, who do you think you’re talking to here?! ^_^ The upcoming two weeks I will be working out the blueprint, though, getting the plot, setting and characters ready for writing. Expect posts detailing that process and unveiling (without spoiling) the story itself in the upcoming days.

Yeah, I know, actual posts! It’s about time, right? Hopefully, with all the stress and busyness lately, NaNoWriMo will succeed in getting those juices flowing, those gears grinding and that engine running, so that the writer in me can once more be awoken and unchained, and do what he does best! … Oh yeah! When my overly melodramatic side shows itself you just know it’s going to be awesome! I’m definitely looking forward to it already! See you around! ^_^

NaNoWriMo 2016, here I come!

About

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.

Hi! ^_^
