This is how I see my role in the world. Start small and hope to affect others. A smile is all you need!

A drop in a pond
Small disturbance, large effect
It will change the world

A smile on a face

NaNoWriMo 2010

This is actually the second time that I’m participating with the NaNoWriMo (check the NaNoWriMo site). The goal is to write a novel of at least 50.000 words within the month November. A pretty good challenge, since last time I participated I went for half of it, so this is actually my first real try.

It benefits me to think that I only need to write at least one word a day. I promised myself that with the result that I start doing it and keep at it until I reach my daily goal. It also helps that I have no real obligations in my life right now, that I’m in a place where I don’t know many people, and that my laptop goes wherever I go. Very convenient if you want to have 50.000+ at the end of the month.

I’ve also been meeting nice people on this big NaNoWriMo adventure. Another plus.

I’m afraid that I won’t be posting my story for this year’s NaNo here. There’s a number of reasons for that:

– It’s too long
– It’s not done yet
– It sucks (since it was created using the motto quantity over quality)

Maybe after the NaNoEdMo (May every year, editing your story) I’ll feel confident enough to post it somewhere. If you’re curious about my writing, please visit my Elfwood or Fictionaut page.
