NaNoWriMo 2019

Well, (1)

Right, so NaNoWriMo.

The holiday that all writers celebrate. It’s like a secret code.

“Oh sorry I can’t make it, I’ve got too much to do, NaNo Wrimo and all.”

And then you the signature “WAT”

Even if you do try to write every year, and they ask that…every year.

Listen, like Inktober is to the Artist, NaNo Wrimo is to the writer. It’s like a push, it’s what we do to drive ourselves insane.

And I for one am failing.

In the name of academics and distracted Youtube videos, but I’m failing none-the-less.

But still, I’m bouncing between two stories because I really can’t decide. (I’m easily distracted and love both my stories equally.

SO ANYWAY.

I wanted to talk a little bit about my works (because I’m fabulous like that), and give an idea of what I’m aiming for, this NaNo Wrimo.

When Crime Became Known Justice

I’ve pitched this before on here, and yes it’s a lengthy title, but I’m not fabulous at titles, so it’ll work for now. Now, about the story…

“Ace Yedgerson never backed down from a promise. And with this one, it was no expectation. The same case he promised to investigate for Zanie Sharper, was the same case that led him to walk away from his beloved job as a police officer for Buffalo. The case? Twenty-one year old Harper Mayberry, kidnapped, and her sister found dead in her apartment. The consensus? Uncertain, until now. Because there’s a new Detective Agency in town, and they don’t let cases close until they’ve found the culprit, and they’ll do whatever it takes to show Buffalo what Justice is supposed to be.”

The Cities Darkest Light

Elle Harper was completely out of Asa Conwell’s league. There was no doubt about it-the two were night and day; they were completely different-but without one, the other would almost seem unimportant, and most likely cause damage. And while the two of them tried their hardest to be strong and independent, at the end of the day; they simply weren’t. Two years together had taught them that.
And in two years, it appeared that they weren’t the only ones with a budding romance. Which, Elle and Asa discover on one rather fateful day.
The rundown?
Chandler Harper, CEO of Hopewell’s Electronics goes missing the same day he’s found getting cozy with the secretary. That same day, Maureen Harper seemingly goes insane, and ultimately, the secretary is found dead.
Naturally, Elle Harper is up for top contenders on the suspect list. Lucky for her, it’s part of Asa’s job to find who’s innocent and who’s guilty, and he’s not one to make exceptions, no matter how dangerous, or close to home it actually gets.

Both of these stories are mysteries, and they do have a romance aspect to them, but I genuinely enjoy them.

Now that you know what I’m working on, let’s observe my goals.

Very simply, write ten chapters I enjoy for each work.

Crazy, right?

Here’s the thing, I’m studying for a very large part of my life (SATS), and failure is not something I will accept a second time.

SO

I’m trying to balance both, without wanting to poke my eyeballs out.

Too late, but a girl can try.

So now, the real question stands.

Are you, good friend, willing to take even the most simple of NaNoWriMo challenges, or are you chilling on the sidelines?

Because either’s cool, I find personally, that it’s one of those months that has a universal goal, but it’s a different journey for everyone, and it’s subjective for each person. Like for my brother, he’s never written a story before in his life, but he’s recently had a story idea he can’t shake and wants to work on it. NaNoWriMo for him is just learning the basics, like creating characters and the basics, and that’s okay.

That being said, I’d love to hear your goals for NaNoWriMo, and as it’s the month of writing, not to be too blatantly obvious, but definitely check out Grammarly, It’s pretty much a lifesaver, and once you write and draft your book, you’re going to need some more editing, and Grammarly is definitely the way to go (my mom has the app on her phone and loves it).

SO, your challenge, is to tell me what your plans are this November/NaNoWriMo, and tell me, if you could see any prompt/trope put into a movie/book, what would it be?

I mean, to be frank with you do people actually read these? Undecided. I do know it's an excellent thing to write when you're trying to procrastinate from literally anything else. Technically I'm supposed to write on these for another obligation but you know what-we'll procrastinate on that one too. Mainly because people will be reading and judging that one. Though if you've gotten this far it's probably because you're genuinely hoping to find information about me, and to put it simply, there's not much to tell. I'm a fairly average person who prefers to have panic attacks about small things, and then when something's big I say "ah screw it" and move on with my life because who has time to dwell, not me that's who. Not with college and other stressful life requirements like not procrastinating on things. But in all seriousness, if you have made it this far, kudos to you. I'm H.A.Ivy, or Ivy, or Hazi or random girl that should shut up. I'm old (there's still a "teen" slapped after my age number so I'll let you figure it out), I enjoy writing, playing video games, and annoying my family. And of course, my ultimate goal is to take over the world, after I finish whatever this is.

  1. Ooh your stories sound cool! 🙂 I haven’t finished a novel since 2013 and have just enjoyed writing short stories these past … several … years … but I still did try to participate in NaNoWriMo most years. Life happened and I wasn’t able to ever focus enough to finish a novel, but every year, November makes me miss story-writing. Oh well. xD Hope things go well for you, girl! You GOT dis! (and take my advice, don’t go poke your eyes out, i don’t think you’d be able to blog anymore if you did that)
