NaNoWriMo again!

I just got my reminder email that National Novel Writing Month is coming upon us soon (November). I had a pathetic word count of 5,200 last year, and since losing my work in a tragic hard-drive crash (I had more words, I swear), I have been putting off starting over from scratch. Well now I MUST. Else some of you may kick my ass ;)

This time, though, I'm going to post what I have into my writing journal (I have one, but I want to make a new one just for my book). I might also play around with different styles, so maybe each chapter will be totally different. Maybe. We'll see.

Anyway, it's the same story as last year: Bug Jar or Bust! About a looong walk to Bug Jar (a bar/music venue in Rochester), where, on the way to see their favourite singer for the first time (three guesses who that is), Jane and Vince meet a few unique characters. Things involved are: stealing a sign, tattoos, getting locked in a porn store, a mysterious jar of street jelly, Rocky Horror Picture Show, a human research clinic, suicide, an abandoned house, two breakups, walking, walking, hitchhiking, and more walking.

Hey, that's cool! I remember what you wrote about the pc crash, that sucked majorly. Aaaand... I want to read the story on, so it's good for me that you participate in NaNo this time :) I still have not decided whether I will. Have so totally NO time for plotting and since last year I know that I need the plotting beforehand in order to achieve the wordcount in November *sighs*

You should keep a journal of what you're up to in Amsterdam, day to day, and change around the people, their back stories, and why they're doing what they're doing... make everything how you think it could have gone ;)
Or something... I don't know.

Yes it is.
I can't even remember what I started writing last year to be honest.
Time to start afresh.

I was thinking more of a collection of short stories, but that's cheating innit? lol

That's pretty much what mine's going to end up being. A series of flashbacks and events that didn't really occur in one day, all squeezed into one day. That's my nutshell ;)
