The Beginning: Day 1

To those of you who don't know what my project for this blog is, I will be attempting to write a novel in just 30 days (a novel is considered a piece of written work that is at least 50,000 words). Very much like NaNoWriMo for those of you familiar with National Novel Writing Month. I'm going to be posting my progress on here which would be the amount of words or chapters I write between posts. I'll post some songs that are relevant to scenes I've been working on or videos that inspired that days writing. I may even post snippets of the novel.

I've been wanting to write this particular story since 8th grade so I'll be putting a lot of work into this. I have actually begun to write this novel before the official start date, but when a writer gets the inspiration and in the mood to write, you have to write. So, I'm officially starting off with 1,105 words. Not too much of a head start but somewhere to get started.

Here's a song that has inspired my newest scene in the novel. It sets the mood of the chapter and its overall theme for the main character.

  1. i blame u for my current addiction to this song. i don't even like most of it! DX basically i hate the chorus and anything following but for some reason the beginning really hooks me!
