NaNo Prep and Writing Kalla

First I’m gonna say today is my birthday! I am officially 22 years old now. Secondly, I waited until today to post this because I wanted to announce it as my birthday. So yay! *throws confetti everywhere*

*ahem* Anyways, today also begins the most active time for most in NaNoWriMo. Most people are now starting their NaNo Prep work today and the forums are being wiped sometime today. So that is always an exciting thing to do. For many the prepping involves doing some strange research that could get us in trouble. Some even wishing they could get their hands of the Anarchist’s Cookbook or whatever it is.

For me I’m just glad I have Scrivener by my side and can sort out all my character sheets, places, pictures, and notes. Its such a beautiful thing to use and suggest any writer out there get a copy of it or Liquid Story Binder. I used that back when it was a free trial and loved its look but of course Scrivener was a bit nicer on formatting things.

So now I’m trying to build for and design all the characters, deaths, and the setting of it all as well as how I plan on writing it. One theory is to write in third person about specifically the person making the wish. Another idea is for it to be around a police officer’s experience on trying to solve the murders. Unsure yet but that’s my biggest issue right now.

As for Kalla, I am furiously writing that right now. Of course I keep thinking I am going in the right direction and find out its completely wrong and wont work and so I get stuck. Its a complicating process since I have it all planned out on how I want it to end but nothing seems to help lead the book in the direction at all for the final book or just flies too fast through that part.

Well, I think that’s all for today. Please don’t forget to like my facebook page and follow me on twitter!

  1. Let’s party like we’re… 22! Yeah, I sang what?…*ahem*

    Love Scrivener too and I can’t get anything organized without it. Let us know what you decide on the police perspective, I’m curious. I did something similar a few years back and now I’m building on that story this year. Just using a different perspective this time but I want to keep that same urgency in the story. Tricky. Happy Planning/Writing!

  2. I checked out the Liquid Story Binder online and I have downloaded a free version (demo, I believe) and I am looking forward to installing it onto my Writing USB (Norrie is its name) at a later time so I can work on it for NaNoWrimo this year! Thank you for the mentioning of this program because now I don’t have to carry an actual binder around with me to college…or multitude of paper…
    Have you used Yarny before? I used it once and it was confusing as heck. It looks like Liquid Binder is going to be way easier!
    As for your story I think it would be interesting to see it third person from the wisher’s perspective. If you wrote it like that I believe I would read it. Maybe we can be writing buddies?

    1. I tried using Yarny before and just couldn’t get into it very well. I am glad you are liking how LSB is, I know I used it for a long time and loved it before switching to Scrivener.

      I’m also in college so I know how it is to lug around something huge while trying to carry the actual textbooks for class too.

      As for the style of my writing and everything, just keep posted on my blog or like my facebook page too since I post stuff on there too. Also you can add me on NaNo as a writing buddy, its Kalio_chan.

      1. I added you on NaNoWriMo (I’m Moonlight Raven). I noticed on your NaNo profile you have skype so I may add you on there too.

        Yay! You write steampunk! In the future I am toying with the possibility of doing a Steampunk NaNoWriMo novel. I love reading it though.

        I love your background/template. Which one did you use and how did you get the NaNo widget to work on the template?

        Geeze…Oops…maybe too many words for a simple comment. ^_^ I’ll add you on skype.
