NaNoWriMo 2016. Log 1: Ignition!

And we are off! As of today NaNoWriMo 2016 has officially started and so have I! At the time of writing this first log of the month I haven’t finished the necessary word count for today, but with about 200 more to go I feel that won’t prove too much of a hurdle.

This year I decided to start my writing journey at the local library. There isn’t any write-in there, but I thought it would be a good place to write: quiet, surrounded by books and without too many distractions to keep my from my task. So I set out with my laptop, sat down, tweeted a picture of my laptop and the text document just before my big start and, I off I went!

My experience? It was okay. Perhaps it was because this library was a new environment to me (and a less quiet one than expected, at that), perhaps because I’m a little rusty writing-wise and have to get back into things, or perhaps I was distracted by having to go to the bathroom in the middle of my writing session, but I’d hoped for a slightly smoother start. Just need to get, as they say, in the zone, I suppose.

Thankfully, the story is kicking off, though. It’s appearing a bit more serious than expected at the moment, but then again, I am fairly new to writing humour outside of the gag-and-reference galore of the ‘fun fiction’ I used to write. I’m confident both the story and I will find our stride soon enough.

And that was the first day of my NaNoWriMo 2016 experience. Unfortunately a bit of a slow start, but hey, it’s the first day. Everything can still happen and I’m keeping a pretty positive attitude towards things. For now I will go back to finish those last (and hopefully a few more) words for today before recuperating for the next day. One day (almost) down, twenty-nine more to go! Let’s do this!



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! ^_^
