Update on NaNoWriMo #1

Right now I am assuming people actually give a flying platypus about my NaNoWriMo. If you don’t, please leave I won’t mind.

So remember when I said I couldn’t find muse yesterday? Well, it’s not to say exactly that I did found my muse. My current story is more like an attempt at spontaneity than a well-planned storyline, like I usually have with my stories. At around 10pm last night, I began to feel desperate, and randomly groped for any stray ideas floating in my mind, and I did find one, from the series I was recently obsessed with, the Hunger Games, and I admit, my story is way too Hunger Games-ish I don’t even know if I like it or not, but since Katharine and Daphne have gotten me to continue, I decided not to abandon the idea. How about I just show you a screencap of the synopsis + excerpt of my story from my Nanowrimo profile.

(I actually do think my editing skills has improved…. *smirk*)

And yes, that is Kaya Scodelario. Now you know what I mean by my story being too Hunger Games-ish.

And to be perfectly honest, I have no real idea how this story is supposed to turn out, so now all I can hope for is that my brain does a miracle and supply me with the 374938759307503985402394750239754457659873245633 ideas I used to have when I’m daydreaming with a pencil in hand (or laptop in lap).

I only got to about 800+ words yesterday. And right now my word count is 1,849. I’m supposed to reach 3000+ words today. Gulp.

On a sidenote, and I completely digress, it has been raining non-stop for the past two days, and now it’s flooded in Anak Bukit and the water is bound to reach here sooner or later, so now I am basically crossing my fingers that the electricity stays on the whole while I’m on the computer (since the water supply is already slowly running out) and typical paranoid me has been clicking on the “Save” button every few seconds in case my laptop goes off suddenly (it’s battery-less and hangs on to life by merely a charger plus its wire, before you shout at me that laptops have batteries that can function even without current) and I lose everything I’ve torn my hair out in frustration to type out.

So guys wish me luck, both on my story and on the flood. And now, allow me to take a breather from writing and spend some quality time feasting my eyes on Dean Winchester.
