Yeah, so I lied.

Sorry NaNoWriMo…

Maybe next year, eh?

Not sure yet...

But I think I’m going to do NaNoWriMo this year.

I just got an email from them and it got me thinking…

So, why not? What’re you waiting for, Bri?

A work in progress.

I’ve had this idea in my head for, literally, years. Not too many years, but enough that I wish I could just write it out and be done with it. And since now I’m getting into the Tolkien-universe, I’m feeling all kinds of good vibes from this idea. I sincerely doubt I’ll be anywhere near the next Tolkien, but it’s a fun goal to work towards.

I don’t quite have a plot thought out for it yet (sadly plots are not my strong suit, which is definitely not good!), but I’ve got three scenes, a basic terms list and the basic model for the two main characters fleshed out already (who sadly have no names).

After writing the three scenes, I’m noticing just how wordy I get. I probably do it with things like this, too. I just want to fit in so much, I don’t really know how to condense it down. ; 3;

But I think I’ve got something going here… I just need to fine tune it and decide what I’m actually planning for it.

*sigh I think I’ve bitten off more than I can chew, but it’s still something I really want to do. I can do it!

Lately, it seems...

I’ve been just sitting and, suddenly, I’ll think of something and be all, “Oh my God, that sounds like a great idea for a story!”

But hoooow do I write it?

I just… can’t think of how to put down in words. It simply sits as an idea.

Dang it.

That much closer to becoming a reality.

I was signing up for my classes for next semester, and as my adviser and I were talking about what I all needed, the topic of independent study came up.

I’ve always been a little worried about independent study. It was kind of like a, “What the hell would I be doing…?” thing. And I won’t even get into what I feel about internships (I shudder at the thought, basically…).

But it turns out, because of the creative writing major I’m going for, my independent study will most assuredly (most likely, really) be me writing a book.

Sad part is that this isn’t until my senior year-ish. (A.K.A. three to four years.)

Chances are I won’t pluck up the motivation/courage before then to do it on my own, so… This goal is being swept under the rug for the moment. Sigh.
