I have been wanting to do this kind of post ever since the beginning of NaNoWriMo, but somehow it didn’t happen. So right now I will give you a general update over how the process is so far on my NaNoWriMo project.
Well let’s first get started with the title, because I still don’t have one. I type my story in a Word document and it is name NaNoWriMo2017. I have been thinking of a title, but I just can’t come up with one. I’m not stressing about the title for that matter, it will probably come to me when I am further into this novel or maybe at the end of my first draft. But it kind of feels nice to refer to its title instead of NaNoWriMo project.
The title I have had on my mind is Iced Witch. What do you think of that name? What comes up when you read that name?
My novel has The Snow Queen (by Hans Christian Anderson) and Frozen (by Disney) elements. before really writing out my concept for this novel, I read The Snow Queen and rewatched Frozen to write down thing I would like to use from them. So it isn’t going to be a retelling, but I will be using elements from them. And this motivation to write this actually came from Stealing Snow by Danielle Paige, because I didn’t like her take on some of the elements. So I decided to write the story I wanted to read, with the elements I like.
The first three days of NaNoWriMo were great, I wrote all those days more than 2,000 words. But after those days it went down drastically.
And only yesterday I have recollected myself. I have motivated myself to continue writing more and that is going well so far. I actually have planned for tomorrow to be an ‘All writing day’. So tomorrow I plan to focus all my energy on my novel. Mainly to catch up on the words I should have written but haven’t yet. And to work out the second half of my story.
I am excited to write again and I plan to update you more regularly than I have done so far (so you can at least expect 2 more posts on NaNoWriMo if everything goes against what I want to do XD).
So I would love to know what you think of these updates and what kind of information you would like to hear on my NaNoWriMo project.
