Also, for those writing, the website Tablo (tablo.io) is holding a contest where if you use their platform to write your NaNoWriMo, you will be entered into a contest. At the end of the December, the three books that have generated the most traffic on the site will receive free professional editing and help in looking for a publisher. Naturally, I'm doing it, even though I hate the idea of randos reading through an obvious first draft. Nobody should see my shitty first drafts but me.

I guess I've already screwed up. I was going back through my writing prompts and the name of the screenplay was actually "My Dance with the Vampire's Bridesmaid", not date. Such a fucking failure I am.

WTF? I was interested before, but this... smh

It's November 3rd and I've written a little over 300 words. This isn't going according to plan

To really get into it and maybe inspire some of us to keep going, I'll link to my Tablo first draft. You can see how it's coming. Just to save my ego, I need to put in the disclaimer that this has not been edited at all. It is rough even by first draft standards. Not even spell checked. I am just plowing ahead, vomiting words in true NaNoWriMo style. So it sucks like all first drafts suck.

Reading it now; it's off to a good start.

You're making me look lazy here, AJ. I just blame my ADD and point to this thread: http://herochat.com/index.php?topic=7469.msg149863#msg149863

This excerpt is literally all I have put together in a legible form, even if it's stylistically stream of consciousness rushed first-person stuff. Anything else I have is just notes.

There's absolutely no way I'll be even partially meeting the goal by the end of the month, but at least it has given me impetus to start writing again even if I'm overthinking the whole thing.

A couple points.

1.  I wrote 5000 words before November and am using NaNoWriMo to add to it, I'm only about half as productive as I seem.

2. Read your excerpt. It's really good and I like it but I kept asking myself "Where the fuck are the super powered people?" Get your shit together, Wyntyr.

I'll slap my writing dick on the table in short order when I get Microsoft Word next week and am actually able to recover the file in my e-mail.

Mind you, I have somewhere around 15k words already typed out, so I'll seem amazing, when really all of that had been slowly written over the course of about 6 years.
