This July camp I had set a target of 60 hours of edit and completed it successfully yesterday midnight. I have been certainly happy with the current edit.

NaNoWriMo: Journey from 0 to 50K



Indian Bloggers

Look what November of 2016 did!

nanowrimo_2016_webbadge_winner

Every journey has a take-away in it. NanoWriMo had a lot more than the happiness of having 50k word count, winner title, certificate and few goodies.

It was not about 50k word count. It was how each word added to the count making it 50k. The journey started with sprints organized by WRIMO INDIA group. I used to write at morning 11.00 am and night 9.00 pm sprints which were 30 minutes each. In each sprint which used to happen either on twitter, NaNo forum or Facebook, I got 1000 plus words. As there were fellow writers writing along with me, it added an extra zeal and passion to aim for the highest word count in every sprint. While free I used to plan what to write during the sprint schedules. As there was a good progress with initial two sprints per day, I started hosting a sprint at 7.00 pm and managed to do so in the last two weeks of the month. By 25th of the month I had hit my 50k. The last 5 days were the toughest. I had to write around 7k more and was short of words. Had to look for plots to fit inside the novel and extend it.

Through the November, I made many new friends, interacted with other writers, got a chance to motivate other writers, I can append this list with a lot many such. There were people with much hectic schedule and commitments than mine but still had every hope of writing and making it to the word count. They did. The Facebook group was a “never-give-up environment”. The India ML’s and other writings WRIMOs were equally encouraging to anyone who wants to write. The NaNoWriMo site had a lot of inspirational materials too. The pep talks, regular events, forum discussions, encouraging statistical charts all made the journey worth its every step. Though November had its own personal and professional commitments, with the existing support it was not difficult for the novel to keep baby steps every day and turn to fully fledged youth in month’s time. It had just glued into the daily routine, perfectly!

Above all of it, there is happiness of getting the first draft of novel ready. There is an excitement that now I want to experiment and try out the various sequencing of chapters to best fit the flow of plots. I am all ready for the edit and fill the missing gaps and loops. I will be releasing a novel as ebook and free download.

Look what November of 2016 did! It packed me bundles of cherish-able memories and left me wanting for more! My sincere thanks to everyone who supported in the journey and making it through.  Well, I now know my plans for November! Every November ahead!

i-4-you-lr

i 4 you” is my NaNoWriMo novel that I am writing this month. There are still 8 days left and I have around 5K odd words to complete. It’s been a enjoyable journey so far. I know editing a 50k words novel is going to take a lot of time and I plan to release it as a free download like I have done for my other ebooks. However, I can always share the bits and pieces of it to keep the excitement on. Here I share the Preface of it.


Preface

With every sunrise the sky winks to the earth and passes a complimenting ‘Hello’.  The radiance lightens the point in time for green, brown, blue and colorless. With this milieu, we human beings are put into an acting profession. A possibility to earn the daily bread being the foremost objective, the time continuum also stages the drama adding variety of sentiments to the living. Sometimes these stories set out so much involvement that they carry a message for the era. It is a crucial necessity to pen them down to leave behind a larger impact to the social order.

“i 4 you” is a piece of writing which tells a story of lost one sided love. Oh wait, that is not it! It is about how two loving souls got tied for eternal togetherness. It is a story of how success of one’s love ruined for another. Oh wait, that is not only it! It is about how sacrifice of one was happiness to many. Okay. That is not the take away. There is more. The characters in this story excel in acting. They are supposed to pass on the message loud and clear. I am hoping that they are going to be successful in that.

Life and love gift us with the color wrapped complications. Our life story is knit with so many jargon’s that only a twist at regular intervals can sort out those intricate interwoven complicates. “i 4 you” is one such life and love story. It’s the end which makes sense. It’s the end, which opens the possibilities. Otherwise, it is just a convoluted social romantic drama.

The 4 here is a symbol for many 4’s like care, miss, hate, like, love, lust etc. On top of the pyramid is the lust. Lust takes the strapping position than love.  That is what every chapter in this book speaks about. The many 4’s.  Those 4’s that impact the life.  The words might seem effortless at certain places but so is not the story.
