Today I kicked off my very first non-camp NaNoWriMo! I took part in a smaller NaNo event in July, and my goal was just 10,000 words (which I hit!). This time around, I'm shooting for 50,000 words by the end of the month. I'm focusing on writing an interactive novel in which the player finds themselves trapped inside an indie movie. In order to escape, they must make their was past all of the major indie movie stock characters...or become one themselves.
Some well-known Manic Pixie Dream Girls, just one of the many tropes in indie movies
Thankfully, I have great writer friends like @elizaleone3 to help me stay motivated! While 50K is a very big goal for me, considering my busy schedule, I'm excited to push myself and make some significant progress on my interactive novel, whose working title is A Friend's Love Story.
