Man Writing

Can’t recall where I found this picture (I know it was through StumbleUpon), but I’m hoping that I can get through this month of writing insanity (when is writing not insanity?) without being eaten by an alligator/crocodile. However, if it does happen (I don’t live in Florida, so hopefully it won’t), I hope I’ll be like the man in the picture – so intent on getting to 50K words that I don’t even realize I’m being eaten.

My plot idea for this NaNo: (directly from my profile page)

Abbye Madison is a furry. That’s right – she participates in obscure online forums and even wears a fursuit. She dates a boy named David, who betrays her by posting some personal photographs all over the Internet. An obscure group known only as “anonymous” begins tormenting Abbye and she must find a way to stop the madness before it’s too late…

The working title is “David” and the 1,720 words I’ve written so far suck miserably. Maybe it’s because this is my first attempt at writing a novel entirely in 1st person. It seems that no matter how much I try to plan out characters, outline, and setting, I stumble onto the first page in a strange, disoriented state. Who are these characters? Where am I? What’s going to happen? Will I be eaten by a giant reptile before I get to November 30?

Anyway… what’s your NaNo novel about? How many words have you written so far? Thanks for reading and have a great day! 🙂
