Virtual write-in prompts 7/14/16

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZZ9bAFUbC8 Put your character in a situation or scene that is patently ridiculous, whether that's a quirky bookstore, an upside down desert or a humiliating situation. (95 words) The world had gone mad, it truly had. She stood helplessly as trucks after trucks ran over the poor pedestrian. She knew a deliberate murder attempt when… Continue reading Virtual write-in prompts 7/14/16

Story by the campfire: The worst possible ending

First week of Camp NaNoWriMo went by and I got about 3-day-worth of writing. Not bad, I supposed, but it could be better. The serious writing starts next Monday when I'm done with the surprise Microwave engineering re-exam. But first, some quick progress updates on White Destiny's revision: The bishop and the Witch There's been… Continue reading Story by the campfire: The worst possible ending

Story by the campfire: This is why I’ll never finish my writing

So NaNoWriMo camp is on, it's day 3 and I'm sitting here with a grand total of 0 word written. In fact, I believe it's on the negative side of word count as a matter of fact. I've been editing out speeches here and there from chapter 2 through 4 so as to make the chapters… Continue reading Story by the campfire: This is why I’ll never finish my writing

To my Viking cabin mates at Camp NaNoWriMo

It usually takes a long time for me to finish writing a chapter. It goes without saying that even in a fictional context, I tend to spend a lot of time on researches: the vocabulary existed in the era (estimated 14 to 15 century AD), the clothes people wore in the era, buildings, materials, onomatopoeia… Continue reading To my Viking cabin mates at Camp NaNoWriMo

My daily battle: 1,000 word goal (Day 2)

I hit some logistical nightmare during my research today. It takes forever to get the timing and transportation right. I guess I'm running into deficit again. Fact #1: It takes 6 hours by train to travel from Fukuoka to Chiyoda prefecture, 4 hours by air from Fukuoka Airport to Haneda Airport + 1 hour by train… Continue reading My daily battle: 1,000 word goal (Day 2)

My daily battle: 1,000 words goal

The word count for Sasaki this NaNoWriMo Camp is 30,000. Over 30 days of April, that means 1,000 words per day. I've cranked out more words in a day in blog posts so 1,000 words should mean nothing. Nope. The Pantser Me: This is going to be a piece of cake! Okay, now characters decide to spend… Continue reading My daily battle: 1,000 words goal
