NaNoWriMo semi-all nighter  
I dunno if I've ever mentioned it before, but I cannot pull all nighters. I eventually get to a point of braindeadness and then I have to sleep.

That being said, it's 20 til 4am and I'm still up and have been writing on and off since 1am or something. Wrote 2K+ words, which is normal for me at a non-write-in. I'm still 10K behind, but it's a much smaller 10K than last week. Hurrah!

I would like to write 5K in a day for 3 days in the next 10 days, but I dunno if it's possible with all this school work that I have. Hopefully it is.

Meanwhile, I'm constantly amazed but the metamorphosis the concept of my story is taking. It went from scifi with small bits of fantasy elements, to a scifi fantasy novel. I'd like to re-write it or something and make a proper outline one day. ^_^

Also, sadly, not going to the dangerously write-in. I need sleep, especially cuz of school.

P.S. I love The Hunger Games! It was a wonderful read that took me about 2 or 3 hours straight non-stop. I'm itching to read book 2 of the trilogy now.

NaNoWriMo is this crazy thing where people write 50K words in 30 days in November ^_^

School just keeps getting in the way -.-

Nah. It's just a challenge, like land comms or whatever. Purely for fun ^_^

oh, I see :)
and what is your story about? :)

It's about this girl and her brother who keeps getting sucked into other people's fight for power. Right now there are 3 "factions": the government, the resistance, and the Illuminati.

Originally I was going to have a purely scifi novel, but now it's turned into some weird scifi/fantasy world with The Hunger Games and Da Vinci Code elements thrown in.
