As previously posted, I have opted out of NaNoWriMo this year. And not just because it’s really annoying to type NaNoWriMo over and over or repeatedly explain what it is. So I’m doing my own thing… And still have to explain what it is. And I’m two days late. You’ll just have to deal with that. :p
Here are the perimeters: I am going to complete as many short stories as I can in one month. Shorts that I have already started are not exempt from my total completion tally. I am going by stories completely written, not typed. If the story is a paragraph, it counts. If it seems like the story is mutating into a novel, it doesn’t count and will be stopped immediately for a shorter project.
Why am I doing this? Because I am notoriously bad at short stories. I have trouble keeping things short unless threatened by a teacher to do so. I’m getting better but I’d like to have it be second nature to turn out something of good quality that’s under 50 pages or so. Give or take for font size and all that. But unlike trying to get a huge ass novel, I can concentrate on a complete narrative without getting bogged down in word counts which screwed with my head. I’m unhinged enough, thank you very much. *huffs*
Let the game begin!! >D
