Re: The ZuNoWriMo Lounge: back next year

Balancing school, homework, ZuNoWriMo, sleep, exercise and internet.
It's harder than it sounds. (Note the lack of a social life)
Then my schedule is going to get even more hectic, because I had the genius idea of volunteering at the upcoming Film Festival in my city, which is going to take about 6~ hours each day of my weekends.
But still, it doesn't take that much time to pick up a paper and pencil and write a thousand words, if you're really into it.

Re: The ZuNoWriMo Lounge: back next year

Oh, haha, I never sacrifice sleep for anything. Keeps me lookin' fresh! (That said, yeah, school bogs me down, but I usually get my daily goal in, since it really takes just an hour or so of dedicated work [spread out over the course of the day because OH WOW THAT THING IS COOL THANKS TUMBLR]).


Also, just want to take a sec to thank Blizz for reviving ZuNoWriMo and letting everyone know about it. His enthusiasm about the project is something I think that's really pushed this before it even started.

Re: The ZuNoWriMo Lounge: back next year

Well, it's the 5th and I've yet to write a word. Well, bar a few sketchy planning notes. This was a poorly-chosen time to fall ill.

Daaaaw! ^_^'

Revival is just the first step. Hopefully we can do more with this next year. And possibly make lots of use with ZU's social group feature.

Re: The ZuNoWriMo Lounge: back next year

If an idea isn't panning out at all, is it possible for me to scrap what I'm using for ZuNoWriMo and try something else?

Because my brain isn't working with what I have anymore. t might take until October 31st for me to come up with a continuation of what I have.

Re: The ZuNoWriMo Lounge: back next year

NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO DROP OUT. EVERYONE IS A WINNER.

Even if you don't think you'll be able to reach the goal, don't think, Oh, I might as well just sit this out. Even if you only write a handful over the course of the month, you've still written *something*.

(So, this basically means I'm going to keep your name up in the original post, is all. If you don't feel like you'll be able to write much, that's fine. :< But don't be weary of ever giving it a go again later in the month!)

Re: The ZuNoWriMo Lounge: back next year

I'm definitely not going to be able to make the 30k word goal. I'm not dropping out per se, but there's no chance I'll be able to make it to the ultimate goal. I just have too much going on.
I'll write as much as I can in my free time, though.

Re: The ZuNoWriMo Lounge: back next year

At least I've made a start now. Not sure how much I've done but it's more than 100 and less than 1,000 thus far.

School! *Smashes head on the wall*
(This is my excuse, anyway.)

But really, gotta turn the faucet on to get the water flowing, is my advice. Just sit down, force a few lines out, and the rest'll be easy coasting from there. Don't worry too much about the content of a rough patch. The quality may not be to your liking, but getting through it'll help you get to the next bit. You can rewrite/revise anything that displeases you in the revision process, if you wish it.

Re: The ZuNoWriMo Lounge: back next year

Let's see, 16th-31st. As of now I average about 2,000 words per day.

31-16 is 15. 15 x 2,000 is 30,000.

By God I just might make it.

Re: The ZuNoWriMo Lounge: back next year

*sigh* I'm sorry. I started writing as soon as the clock turned 12 on the first of October. I was writing a story about a boy named Link, stumbling his way from the path of life and daring to be different, finding love and friends on the way, and I've written a whole lot. I've just found my way to the 20,000 mark of words, but I'm afraid to announce that I will not be continuing this story until well after October. I'm going to be in hospital starting from tomorrow conerning my baby (yes, I'm nine months pregnant, and so happy!). But I've been having some major problems with my little baby, and that has resulted in me having to go to the hospital until bub is born. I may write while I'm there, I may not, but I know I won't finish my 30,000 words in time for the end of OCT, so I'm just letting you know. But don't think that I am stopping there; I will continue writing, don't you worry. I'm really upset about this, but there is always next time

Thanks a lot for participating. :>

I hope everything goes well for you and the child. Let us know what ends up happening, if you can. At the very least, show us some cute pictures when the cute babe is born! <3
