Another Kind of NaNo…

So I failed this year at NaNo.  I sat down on day one and broke a personal record with 8,070 words.  However I was unable to find the time or desire to write after that. 

In less than a month I would be getting my college degree, a Bachelor’s of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies (Concentrations in Zoology and Psychology).  To get this it would mean I would have to write a very good and well thought out research paper on my main project-training the Central Florida Zoo’s alligator.

As I was also interning on my days off from work (I work in a Publix bakery) my free time was spent either having a few relaxing moments to myself, or working on that darned paper.

So NaNo went forgot.  Not happily, but I was forced to admit that I just wasn’t going to get the time I needed to actually write anything for enjoyment.

I had intended to write a fanfiction, and still do.  I am slowly working on it when I have muse and time.  However, another story had pushed it’s way into my brain, a story that does not want to wait until camp NaNo or the next official NaNoWriMo.

The prequel to Gryphon Legend.

I will begin writing this story and will give myself 30 days to compete with a friend or two who is not exhausted from NaNoing in November.  It will be just like NaNo, only it will run from December-January and will be much less official than the real NaNo.

Wish me luck. I’d like to see some good come of this year.

About lvadams

I grew up in Central Florida for most of my life. I was one of those strange kids who liked to catch lizards and snakes, and brought everything home from stray kittens to baby chickens and ducks. I started writing around the age of 11 and never really stopped. I now have a Bachelor's of Science degree from Auburn University and hope to get a job working with animals. Until then I keep on writing. :)
