Thank You Person Who Created NaNoWriMo (Even though I only have 1,800 words right now (word count at the end of the day today is supposed to be 25,000)).

I HAVE MY CHARACTER!

I went from Chris Beatty (Is that his name? The guy who created NaNoWriMo?), his advice in his book to listen to music that fits the scene, to finding my guy. Literally finding him. I know who he’s based on. I know what he looks like. I know how he smiles. I know how he talks. I know his mannerisms (somewhat). This is mostly because he’s a real person. Except my character is who I think this real person is, based on youtube videos mostly.

who cares?! I have my guy. Thank you Beatty. (I’m pronouncing it Bay-ty in my head, I know I got that from somewhere, it must have been the name on your book. My apologies for not remembering how to spell it correctly. I’m too excited right now to go look it up.) Your book is awesome. And hilarious. And so awesome.

Amazingly enough, I named my guy (my character) way before today and the guy I’ve realized he’s supposed to be (the real-life guy from youtube videos) has the same first name! WOOHOOOOOOOOOO!

I’m excited. I’m listening to him right now.

    • Well, I’m not actually sure that I’m doing it anymore. I have less than 2,000 words so far, and the rest of the month is busier than this first half has been so it doesn’t look promising. But I’ve been having a lot of fun creating my story and characters and writing even as much as I’ve written, so I guess I’m kind of doing NaNo even if I don’t finish it?

      That’s pretty impressive that you’ve completed NaNo. That’s 50,000 words! Congrats on that! 🙂
