For those of you who don't know, Nanowrimo is a global phenenomen were one writes 50,000 words of a novel in 30 days.
I participated in 2009. Any fellow nano-ers around? What was your novel about?
I quasi-participated in 2009 (was actually writing non-fiction at the time), and was a full-fledged participant in 2010. Wrote 46,000 words. Got burnt out and didn't write anything at all for the last week or so.
But, I'm editing that same story now. Here's the blurb:
"Our story begins on the 37th of August, 2032, and the asteroid Apophis is due to hit Earth at any moment. Developed and developing nations having failed to meet key targets for reducing anthropogenic emissions of pollutants, the planet is in such a state of disarray that scientists are not compelled to make an attempt at preventing the asteroid's impact. The Earth is simply not worth saving. Instead, they pool their resources and formulate a plan to evacuate themselves to the International Space Station and two other space stations--one developed by the European Union, and one developed jointly by China and Russia. They leave the rest of humanity to perish. Our protagonist, an advanced experiment in robotics named Max, struggles with the humanity his creators have infused him with. He can't sit idly by while his human companions die slowly in the aftermath of the asteroids impact. All the while, a dead businessman foils his attempts to save the planet."
I did it last year and it was about a city in the sky called. . . City in the Sky ^ ^;;
I have not a single creative bone in me
I participated in 2010, and I finished in 21 days. ^^ And this year I'll participate again.
I participated in 2009 as well and wrote some strange sci-fi realistic fiction hybrid called "Brain Book" written in the perspective of four teenagers. Please bare in mind I was thirteen and this was the first major writing I ever completed.
I close my eyes and allow my mind to slip into the fog in the distance. Dark street lights etch shadows while trees rumble and roar with the sweet feeling of wind. Drifting into a mind haze, I breathe slower and relax for the last time today for a while despite it only being morning, I have school to face...the crowds I have to battle and my shyness to overcome is something I struggle with daily. The small bumps in the road the bus goes over makes me feel alive as faults will always happen but you must keep on going.
My friend participated in 2010's before I knew her but she still won't let me read her book! We're both going to do it this year and maybe an impromptu NaNoWriMo in July when we get bored. Only problem with November is that we're going to Cardiff for my 16th birthday. I can just imagine the plane ride.
Me: You done yet?
Her: Nope. You?
Me: You done now?
