NaNoWriMo 2016. Log 11: The Curse of the Daily Life

Not exactly the 2,000 words I’d hope to reach today, but at the very least the required average daily word count has been reached. Of course, with my delay, said required average daily word count is slightly higher than for someone still on track. No matter, though, I still consider it a successful day, especially considering that evil bastard known as daily life is running rampant again, setting appointments, making me buy groceries and clogging my toilet! Just you wait! One of these days I’ll get you and then I’ll write more than could possibly imagine! Hah!

And despite not quite achieving everything I’d hoped to achieve, I am still having tons of fun writing this story! Today I incorporated an idea, which came to mind yesterday, that adds a piece of personal nostalgia into the story. I’m not sure if it’s subtle or really blatant – and I think I do have to watch out not to cross that dicey copyright line -, but it’s absolutely great to fit it in this world of my own creation and reading back about it in the process, you know, for research! ^_^

The log’s a little later than it usually comes. Today I decided to finish working on the story first before writing this, to keep me in the flow. It’s possible I might do this for other days, but nothing’s decided yet. It may not even be necessary if I actually manage to get my writing done a little earlier during the day. ^^;

So night time arrives and with it sleepy time. I shall wish you all a good night and hope to see you again tomorrow on the continuation of this steep but exciting climb of a writing journey! Until then! ^_^


I’ll get you next time, daily life! 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.

Hi! ^_^
