RWBY Volume 4 premiered today. I actually can't watch it yet...but they posted the intro on Facebook. It's awesome. I'm intrigued and officially re-excited. They also posted a short sneak peek of ep. 1. The animation looks amazing. I am ecstatic.
Anyways, I forwent (forwent is a word! I didn't know that until thirty seconds ago and now I'm really happy about that because it's useful) a regular greeting to screech about RWBY-ness, but hi guys!
So, as some of you are aware of, NaNoWriMo is upon us. In fact, it starts in a little over a week. Ten days to be exact.
AND IT IS TIME TO CONQUER.
Those of you who are participating this year are probably busy getting prepared...unless you're like me and haven't even started.
Okay, that's not completely true...I actually planned a few things for Continuing Forever 2 out during/right after the editing process of Continuing Forever, but a couple of weeks ago I decided not to do NaNo, and then last week I (re)decided to do it. I briefly decided not to do it mainly because of time. Things have been pretty busy lately, which is fine by me because I like to be busy...but it does make things like NaNoWriMo a bit difficult. November is always such a busy time for some reason, and I have plans to travel some this month, and I've recently(ish) begun working (babysitting) two days a week. School is already becoming a bit difficult to get done...so I thought, "Hey, I'll just not do NaNo this year and give myself late December-early March to write Book 2..." But then I decided it was better to use the "brutally" cold Winter months for editing and plan to publish late Spring/mid-Summer/ sometime around there. Plus, having to write at least 50,000 words within a month is motivation that I definitely need and without which it is unlikely that I would ever finish a book. So take that, NaNo. You can't scare me off that easily.
(lol jk you technically did scare me off but I came back.)
But I do feel a bit more prepared this year...though still not nearly as prepared as I'd like to be. Last year I sat down at the computer on the evening of November 1st, opened a new document, started writing...and yeah. Continuing Forever happened. (Professional amiright?)
The problem with writing the second book is that I have to make sure everything matches up with the first...which requires a lot of re-reading and jotting down random facts about this world(s) and characters and story I have created and I am so tired of doing that. I mean, when I finished the first draft of Continuing Forever I was pretty happy with it (well, still am, I guess), but every time I read it I get more and more tired and sick of it and I just...gaaaaah!
But I'm almost ready to just jump into the actual writing part, so that's cool. All good.
So yes. I am participating in NaNoWriMo this year, although I have doubts about whether or not I'm going to actually hit the 50,000 word mark by December 1st. All we can do is hope... nah it'll be fine, I can (probably) do it (mostly).
Also, Joy and I want to get together one or two times to write together for moral support and be very successful and productive together.
Or, you know, we could end up just sobbing and screaming and wailing.
(Pssst, Joy. I was trying to figure out who should be Ruby and who should be Weiss in this scenario- at first I thought I'd be Ruby since her hair has reddish-like qualities about it but your hair isn't really white and mine is longer than yours...plus you're much nicer than me so yeah you should be Ruby but then again you're the oldest so....I dunno.)
So yeah. Let's do it, fellow WriMos!
Yayyy writing! Yayyy stress! Yayyyy procrastination! YAYYYYY RWBY.
(And also all the wonderful parts of NaNoWriMo because it is overall really cool.)
(But RWBY is cooler.) (I mean have you seen the new intro?)
(Oh my gosh.) (So excited.)
Have a great day/night, guys.
