More NaNoWriMo freak out

Oh bother NaNoWriMo! it seems to be about all I can think about these days! grrr! From the way my story is starting to shape up in my head, it's going to be a little darker than what I usually write. No. I take that back. I seem to be good at writing a little dark. I'm thinking about my short stories for writer's class here. At any rate, this story is NOT going to be for little kids.

It's a good thing I switched to the adult version of NaNoWriMo. I'm still going to be posting on the young writer's one though. I had people from both networks that wanted to be buddies with me. so that's why I have two accounts. Same username, same novel, different word count. yikes! I have to write 50k! that means about...1666 words a day! that's four pages!

Another thing that's going to bug me about this is that I'm pretty sure this story would work better in 3rd person. THAT is ok since I write in 3rd all the time. However, my main character is named D1R5. yeah. so that means sift key D, number 1, sift key R, number 5. CONSTANTLY!

Bother. I make these things too hard for myself.

In which my ghost does the writing for me

Bother, bother, bother. I rather like that word, don't you?

School is picking up slightly, which is good, co-op is less stressful, which is good, NaNoWriMo doesn't start until November, which is bad, I have a huge zit over my eyebrow, which is bad and I'm completely bored to death at the moment, which is bad. Yes, it is the ghost of Kye who sits here writing these words. I told you, I am bored to DEATH.

Actually, not so much, just bored enough to sit here and tell you that nothing is going on. I might go steal the game controller from my brother for a bit. How lazy of me! I do have a nice book I could be reading, but I usually read at night because otherwise I'm constantly bombarded with interruptions! I HATE being interrupted.

We watched Howl's Moving Castle again last night (in English this time) Not that bad, but Howl's voice in English is absolutely horrible and Calcifer sounds like Mike Wasosky from Monsters inc.

That's all. ta ta

School Slumps and Nanowrimo

Well it's October now, but my school hasn't improved any. I was hoping my last year of high school would go better than it has. I feel soooo far behind and my motivation is like, not there. I'm not sure if it ever was...I'd really like to stop going to CBS on Tuesdays because then I'd be able to do more school. It's not like I'm learning anything there anyway.

I signed up for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) yesterday. My username is Annaldi and my story is called Dare. I wrote a summary and designed a cover for it, but beyond that I have no idea what it's about. I guess I have October to think about considering I don't actually have to start writing it until November. I've never done it before so I decided to do 4ooo words instead of 5ooo words. That roughly means about 133 words a day which I think I can do quite easily. I hope so anyway.
