Dreaming

NaNoWrMo - Holy -- ! Committed Now - But to What Exactly?

Well, I actually signed up. Oh, yeah, No Plot - No Problem? A guide to the November Mayhem and Madness. A book is available for the NaNoWriMo plot-less.

I think my problem is that I think out too many plots, in too much detail, and most of them tend to manifest in circular, out of order, events furiously scribbled in notebooks. Don't tell any doctors that, or they might once again attempt treating me for 'racing thoughts' and 'circular thought processes' - and that never goes well on a personal level. Creativity Bomb - Kill all Original Thought seemingly is the medical profession's deeply disturbed motto!

So, I'm signed up under Innogen on the official page, where I will be hiding behind my many neurotic tendencies when questioned on my favorite books and authors (which, honestly, I no longer retain a clue after all that tech writing crud shoved down my throat).

Hopefully, someone can become a writing buddy?

Girl, you ain't alone. My plot gets holes every day and even though I have a somewhat general outline of it, somehow it changes constantly. O_o

I WANNA BE YOUr BUDDY!!! We can run around in circles together and headdesk every other Friday.
My Very Own Madness.....

No, sir, I am mercscilla wherever I go. *nods*

OMG, only a week left and no PLAN WHATSOEVER! xD
*Mutable_Cantos as NaNoWriMo INSANO Support!
Since I always maintained that mutable_cantos was a process writing area - a support writing group, a safe place to post among friends before posting to the big bad world. For the next few months, and especially for the month of November, I want to dedicate it as a NaNoWriMo support group. If you don't want your posts seen by the outside world simply lock them. Don't worry about the people signed up already - they are already writers who have been through everything or are another piece of me.

A friend has a word template that has things set up that allows us to type into word so we don't have to change a thing once we dump into the Main site's uh...template. Damn, I sound redundant. I am throwing everything into this, this year. I always keep saying I'm going to do it, but this year I committed. ::HeadDesk::

How many of you did I tell about the writing folder of original ideas (forget the fanfic of circular ideas - yeah, the state of my mind most of the time) dating back to my freshman year of high school?

I want you to post your random fragments, your free writes, and whatever comes to mind in mutable_cantos. All right? If I see something that seems worth exploring, I will pop up and say, 'HEY! what is this? Explore it a bit further?' I hope you guys will do the same thing for me, and for each other.

Remember, 50,000 words can be a compilation of original stories as well (I think?). Hell, who knows, maybe it will be enough for those of you bucking to get into an MFA program, or not. Some care, some don't. I still want a bloody Doctorate, coming from that blasted Pacific Northwest compulsory philosophy where we need education when we don't know what else to do with ourselves, except teach and write.

After seeing your post I thought I'd have a wee look at the NaNoWriMo as I always seem to miss it and now I've signed up too.

You do know I'm blaming you for the insanity I'm about to endure.

Oh well, roll on December, I mean November.
:)
I'm another one with no plan/plot at the moment. I haven't bought that book though.

I'll go add you as a buddy in a mo. :)
*G* I've got no plot either but have decided to TRY it again (have been trying it for four years and have yet to succeed) this year. Hopefully a plot will show itself once November 1st comes along. ;)
