NaNoWriMo Day 2


Well its day two of NaNoWriMo and I have written my daily allocation for the two days and then some. If I can keep my motivation through being woken up by someone elses noisey aircon motor at 4am in the morning – meaning I had to sleep on the uncomfortable couch
*note to self. Get a comfier couch for sleeping on. My friends must have lied to me when they told me it was comfy…

and I know this post is not wow related.. and neither is my story. I went with writing a story that has been bouncing round the back of my head for some months. ( no – nothing was ever put to paper or screen ) though I did promise to name a character after a friend. It was going to be set in Sydney, but for now I have made it a generic setting as I would like to see if i could get it published after maybe – Its along the lines of a Supernatural thriller / to use a coined phrase Urban fantasy.

The Genre is not really a unique Genre anymore. I’ve read Anne Rices Vampire books to Laurell K Hamilton, to Kelly Armstrong and Kim Harrison, Lilith Saintcrow and every other series that comes up inbetween.. I think I’ve read all the good ones in the Genre, the reset seem to be more paranormal romances with hot strapping werewolves or Vampires with no unique themes. I worried that the genre its self has become to predictable, and I now I have read about Vampires, Vampire hunters, Demon Hunters, Demon Lovers, Witches, and Warlocks, and Pychics I’m hoping I have read enough to not do what they have all done, and yet still have space enough to carve out my own unique voice.

How does this tie back into wow… well its been less time to play wow. The only way I have stayed focused through this weekend for my allocated words is to make sure that I did not plug my net in. yep no email, no wordpress no rss no news no msn no wow…. untill I have written my allocated words.

It seems to be working. So Far.

    I’m behind the pace right now, but not by too much. I expect to do most of my writing on Sundays. Glad it’s working out for you right now! GOOD LUCK!

    I’m doing Nano too, same genre! My goal is to take what has become the norm for Urban Fantasy and turn it on its ear. Not only do I have a male protagonist rather than a plucky heroine, he is a human in the know without any supernatural abilities… and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

    Good luck on your word count! May you make it without resorting to a last minute find/replace for every contraction you can think of. šŸ˜‰

    Oh interesting.. I am worried about being too Formulaic, but most books in that genre are to a point.. but the important thing is to write!
