During the month of November I am taking part in NaNoWriMo which is National Novel Writing Month. So you think of an idea and plan out a novel and during November you write it.
The recommended work count to aim for is 50,000 words which is what I am aiming for.(hopefully, my mum laughed at me when I said I am aiming for 50,000 words, so I shall prove her wrong(also hello mother!!(she reads my blog)))
I do have an idea and I have made a little plan for writing it.
If you do wish to join in with NaNoWriMo yourself, you can find out more about it here.
Let us go onto what I am going to be doing.
On the website you make your own profile and put a little description of what your novel is about so here is what I put.
After Alice died the Creatures of wonderland called a sorcerer for help to create a new protector of their home. They created a child and named her Lucy Elderflower but with danger at the highest it could be in wonderland, Lucy was sent to the normal world to be brought up like any other child.
Near Lucy’s 16th birthday she starts to notice strange things happening to her. She starts to snap out at people she loved and keeps on seeing two strange men, one pale as snow and his nose keeps twitching like a rabbit. The other man has bright coloured hair just like Lucy’s and dresses very old fashioned, always wearing a battered old hat.
Who are these strange men and will Lucy be able to save wonderland from this evil force before its too late?
I have made myself a plan that I have colour coded and I am planning on writing other little ideas for scenes and other little things I want to put into the story that are just random.
I am really happy with my idea and I think I will be able to write quite a lot with this. I know I am not using all completely new characters but I love Alice in Wonderland and with reading Dorothy Must Die which I think is a genius concept. I started thinking of what happened to wonderland after Alice left.
I do think that I may end up, during December possibly, that I would post chapter by chapter my story from Nanowrimo. If anyone would be interested in that please tell me because I would love to do it.
I hope you all are working well through your Booktober reads. I have now finished Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets so I am going to finish Dorothy Must Die and then I think I will read One Million Lovely Letters. But the only thing is that I have heard it is quite a teary one and I will be probably finishing it off on the train as I will be going on an adventure which I will tell you about in another post. Oooohhh mysterious.
I am very busy at the moment which is fun but I am holiday just now, here in the North East of Scotland it is called the Tattie holidays because in ye olden days the kids used to help pick potatoes from the fields. But I think I will be needing a holiday from this holidays which would be great.
Seriously if anybody owns a time turner or a tardis please tell me because I could do with one right now.
I shall have a post soon revealing what this mysterious adventure I am going to.
So I will be back soon.
