There are 8 days remaining in Nanowrimo and I have a little over 15,000 words left to write. Eek!

...back to typing.

Plot Twist Generator

I recently found this site called Serendipity: Plot Twist Generator.

You just click the button and it makes a random plot twist for you to use in your story. These can be simple, like "Without warning, in walks a clumsy geezer." to the ridiculous, "At this point a pirate arrives, bearing cookies."
I've clicked the button lots and have never seen the same thing twice.
This is great if you get stuck in your story. You can click away until something inspires you. It is also useful as a writing game, click once and you have to use the one that comes up.

A result of Nano

One thing I've noticed from Nanowrimo is that my writing has gotten a tad more wordy. Which is a good thing for Nano, but it's begun to spill over to other areas of my life. Like school. I'd start to write some sorta note or something, but stop when I realize that I'm being unnecessarily wordy. Prior to this, my writing tended to be more concise and to the point.
It's weird.

Nanowrimo Update

So, here we are, Nov 18th and I'm 23,000 words in. I should be like 30,000. I'm still determined to finish, so I've upped my daily word count to 3,000 words instead of 1,667. That way I should be able to catch up. According to my Nanowrimo report card, if I keep up that pace, I'll finish on Nov 27th. So, I'm off to get some more words in.
