23.00- One Hour to Go!

Just back from a freakin kick-ass Cannibal Corpse gig. Woo! (On Halloween may I add) :)

My ears are still ringing like crazy.

Oh and to add to the excitement, NaNoWriMo in just one hour!

I'm really hoping for a couple of thousand words in the time that I'm on.

Up 'till 4am. Probably.

Lots of fun. Definitely!

Snacks, coffee and brain is ready. Bring it on!

Authors at the Ready!

Just under 7 hours to go! I am filled with excitement!

Anyone know anyone in he RW doing this? I know 4 which makes this all the more exciting!

So a Happy Halloween to everyone, and a Happy NaNo-Eve too!

Hopefully I'll get a post up at 12am wishing everyone the best of luck, but I may be to engrossed. We'll see...

Anyway! Imagination commence!

There is a Bomb in my Brain!

A writing bomb, so to speak.

Teardrops on my keyboard.

As The Life and Love of a NaNoWriMo Participant was saying on her blog, NaNoWriMo officially starts in 26 hours!!!! (Nice to meet you by the way :) Hope it all goes well for ya)

Anyway, as my excitement grows and grows, so does my loss of energy from excited dancing.

Onwards and upwards noble steed!

In the mean time, here is an image for you all to enjoy.

How creepy is that little girl!?

So for another 26 hours, there will be teardrops on my keyboard from non-writing.

Blogger Failure

I realised today that I fail at Blogger.

Take a look at who's following me- Yep, look at number 2 on the list.

That's right. I'm following myself...



Thank You Cheebus!

Note to all NaNoers out there.

This is important, so gather round the campfire and listen in.

A HUGE HELP!!! And also pretty cool too.

I am of course speaking of the NaNo '09 Spreadsheet.

Fill in your word count, hours spent writing and a lot more and it will issue a lot of helpful info for you- Eg- Are you on track, etc.

There a quite a few, but here are two of the best: (The two that I found first and decided were the best. :D)



And a huge thank you to the makers of both. You guys are awesome!

Hard Work Goes a Fairly Long Way

Okay, finally got the hang of this thing. I'm new, don't laugh at me!

Here is the poster and banner I've created for Deep Six.



Okay, I've still yet to understand what a cemetery and the White House has to do with the plot at all :)

This should be interesting...


Anyone else being bitten by the 'desperatly want to write NOW!' bug?

It's killing me!

Why won't November just hurry up already!?

On a brighter note:

I convinced a whole 2 other people to participate this year!

*huge celebration!*

But, nonetheless, the patient waiting continues.

In that time, I like to write FanFiction, (It eases the pain of no NaNoing)

Time Schedule

Many of us out there are attempting to juggle NaNo with either school or a job.

No holidays in November!

Which can be stressful at times and make us as busy as hell. (Us being me.) And I know that when I'm sitting there working, I'd much rather be writing up the novel, which can lead me to daydream. And badness...

And then the bliss of the weekend comes...and goes. Only two days a week!

So for the other five days of the week, I've devised an ingenious schedule:


6.30- Probably wake up

7am- Start writing.

8am-4pm- The dreaded 'no-writing' time

6pm- Meal at the computer probably :S

8pm- Have multiple brain explosions.

And then up to exceedingly late hours writing and then falling asleep at the laptop. :)

I love sleep, though. Slight downside.

Of course, starting at 12am on November 1st is a priority!

Hot Dawg!

As you may know, NaNoWriMo now starts in 6 days and 3 hours!

So far I have:

1. Created a slightly-awesome poster and banner for my novel:

The poster can be seen on my NaNo Profile:

I am ilovesatanicmetal (I was having a bit of a random moment)

2. Got some brief notes and plot ideas, character decriptions, etc.

3. Got a summary of the novel:

An adaption of the fictional novel by 'Thom E. Gemcity'

The team, dealing with their own personal dramas, are flung into the world of dangerous and addicting game that is plaguing the streets with its sheer brutality and fascination; what starts off as a curiosity, ends up as an addiction.
When the deaths of three psychotic and hallucinogenic 'players' occur in unusual and suspicious circumstances, and an internet post setting the date for a national 'gaming' day, can the team uncover this underground phenomenon before more lives are lost?

I'm pretty happy with it :)

4. Getting myself hyped up for this. My excitment level is a definite 10!

Things I must do:

1. Expand on my notes.

2. Fix up my writing space (I'll post up photos of it later)

and 3. I should probably get a coffee maker for my room. It seriously has helped my write on many occaisions.

I write FanFiction and often I sit down with a coffee to write, and when I do, my head explodes with ideas. And it also tastes pretty good.

October will be a busy month too! (Even though it's almost over already)


Wow. An internet nerd for years and this is only my FIRST blog!

In case you couldn't fathom it out from the title of this blog, I am taking part in NaNoWriMo 2009 for the first time ever!

But what is this NahNoeRiiMoe I hear you ask.

The aim is to complete a 50,000 word novel in the month of November.

Why do it?

Because hundreds of thousands of people all around this blue marble are also doing it, and the experience that it gives you will last for the rest of your life. Also, a great feeling of accomplishment. And a free paperback proof copy of your book if you win! Sound good?

Let me tell you a little about myself first...

I am David. I am a teen in Glasgow, Scotland and I enjoy the many things that life throws at me. I also like coffee.

My NaNo novel is Deep Six: Cerebral Tyranny and is based on the work of the fictional novelist 'Thom E. Gemcity'. Any NCIS fans will understand.

I am soopah excited about this years NaNo having took part in Script Frenzy this year with Spontaneous Equilibrium and won! (c'mon, I can get some bragging rights, can't I?!)

So there you have it. For the whole of November, you can follow the life and times and adventures of a coffee-addict and the many 4am falling-asleep-at-the-computer moments that other NaNoers can relate to. :)
