NaNoWriMo 2016. Log 23 & 24: Making Waves

I was considering making a triple log for tomorrow, but decided against it at the last moment. It would probably only lead to similar thoughts tomorrow and then the procrastination ball will really be rolling. Let’s not do that, shall we? ^_^

The size of the gap has been moving up and down in slight waves over the past week, but overall I think it has remained fairly consistent. No small, I’ll humbly brag, considering the week has been a busy one. The next three (or at least two-and-a-half) days will contain some more time and if I can muster the same discipline as last Tuesday, I foresee a good deal of progress. Still, very warily, of course!

The way the story is progressing, it looks like I’ll definitely need more than 50,000 words to contain it in its entirety. Especially at the pace the plot’s been moving, I wouldn’t be able to do it justice if I crammed its remainder in those last 11,000 words. So most likely this NaNoWriMo project will only be the story’s first act (with maybe a bit of the second act in there). In a way it’s less than I had expected to write this month, but it does mean the entire story will also be longer than expected! And if the story’s enjoyable – which I certainly think this one is – then more of it is rarely a bad thing, right? ^_^

Now, off to sleep we go, so that we shall be rested and ready to once more take on the great writing journey tomorrow! See you 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! ^_^
