NaNoWriMo 2016. Log 5: You Did WHAT?!

I have a bit of a, confession to make. Some of the words I’ve written today, they weren’t actually written today… Getting a bit stuck on the storyline I was working on, I decided to get back to beginning and get start getting the prelude out. However, the first part of said prelude was actually written some weeks before I decided to use Pwnage as the story I was going to write for NaNoWriMo. Today, I’ve added that part to the story.

Now, one might consider this to be not too dissimilar from cheating and that thought had crossed my mind for a short while, but I’ve since found I’m good. Please hear me out! First off, I actually typed over every single word from the original file into the writing file I’m using this month, without a shred of copy-pasting! So technically I have written these words today. Second, I was already planning on adding that bit in the story anyway, so why not do it right away and be done with it? Third, it’s really only 126 words! In the long run that hardly matters and if I manage to finish with at least 126 words over the 50,000, it won’t matter at all!

Of course there’s really no reason I should go out of my to defend my actions here, but the short thought process entertained me and so I figured: why not share it? Who knows, there might even be someone out there who’s seriously pondering on this right now. If you are: please don’t! Sure, it may be more satisfying to write something completely new, something you haven’t ever written before, but don’t let that stop you from adding an already existing piece of text (of your own making, of course!) if you feel it enhances your story! Because, in the end, isn’t putting together the most awesome story you can what really counts here?

And this particular awesome story looks like it’s really coming together nicely! Now, on to the last writing session of the day! And with haste! I have set a minimum word count of 2,000 for myself today as I attempt to close the word gap and I still have about 500 words to go! Wish me luck, everyone! See you tomorrow! ^_^



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.
