[Writing] NaNoWriMo 2010 Week 2 Update

NaNoWriMo 2010 - rgsunicoWell, we're well into the second week of this year's NaNoWriMo challenge and I'm finally pretty much at par for the course. That's a bit of an achievement in itself, but at least I'm keeping at it. I keep saying that this year's attempt is not an overly serious one and it doesn't matter to me if I don't reach the goal, but there's something about seeing that darn graph NaNoWriMo provides. It just keeps goading me on to push harder and harder.

As you can see by the cute little graphic there on the side, I've been in the red for most of the month. There's just so much other stuff to juggle alongside my pseudo novel writing. It certainly helps that the story is pretty simple and mostly involved concepts borrowed from other stories and franchises. It does have that ripoff quality to things, but then as we keep saying, it's about the quantity this time and not the quality.

For the curious, my still untitled novel is based around the Magic: the Gathering archetype. So that means five wizards, five worlds but of course one big problem that has appeared in five different forms. Each world has started to lose in their fight against the invaders or whatever they end up calling them and they decide to seek the aid of their colleagues in the hopes that a better solution might be determined.

Yeah, nothing to write home about but it works for me.

Wish me luck fellow geeks!
