NaNoWriMo 2016. Log 21 & 22: Wary Optimism

Once again this tremendously strange idea that starting early with your writing is a really effective way of getting both more writing and other activities and responsibilities done during the day has somehow proven itself to be utterly and entirely true! Homework, household things and a remarkably big chunk of writing done?! Wow…

Both yesterday (a work day, of all things!) and today writing went quite well and as of now I’m only about half a day behind! I have grown so paranoid, however, that I refuse to actually celebrate until I’m all the way through and even my enthusiasm about progress I still express somewhat warily. Not exactly the biggest confidence booster, I know, but it that appears holding onto it gives me some peace of mind, so, whatever works, right?

I continue to jump from one part to the other when writing. It’s not so much returning to and revising entire parts (that’s a big no-no in NaNo… ^_~), but like I told in an earlier log, I sometimes get inspiration parts that take place at a later part in the story and so I write them down. This tends to continue during the following days and so the aforementioned jumping ensues and those ‘future’ parts, of course, also need to be connected to the rest of the story again. So, all in all, it’s a bit of a chaotic way to write, but it seems to work just fine.

Looks like those double logs are starting to become the standard now. The month is almost behind us, so I’m not going to decide on whether I want to go and standardize it, but I may look into it for next time. Not having to write a log every day does clear up some precious time that can be spent on the story itself and the progress is undeniable. We’ll see. For now I’ll try to put them out each day as long as I’m able and every other day if I’m not. There’s still about a week to go, so let’s focus on getting that story done! See you next time, everyone! ^_^



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.
