My NaNoWriMo Novel

It’s my second year doing Nanowrimo and I hope that I manage to finish this year again. I’m a bit behind schedule, but nothing too hectic, I should be able to catch up… I hope…

This time around though, I wanna try something different. I’ve got a good foundation for my story, but from here, I can pretty much go anywhere…

The story so far:

We have discovered other intelligent life, and their shared knowledge has placed humanity on the brink of an era of mass exploration. Meanwhile Kalar, a hitman with very few morals, has stolen a new AI ship, Bob, capable of  almost anything, including being psychic & telepathic. Of course, the ship doesn’t really appreciate being stolen, and decides to make Kalar’s life difficult…

So anyone out there who wants to try and challenge me with something to include in the story should just head along to http://AnInconvenientAI.wordpress.com/ and comment on one of my posts.

Busy month ahead…

I (heart) MoIt’s gonna be quite a busy month this November. Not only have I got quite a lot of personal things going on, but it is also Movember and NaNoWriMo.

Even though the last few months have been quiet on the blogging front, I don’t expect to be doing much for the rest of the year.

It all started this morning, whenI managed to get in just short of 1000 words in for NaNoWriMo. Will get some more in before I sleep hopefully. Even though you only need to get in 1333 everyday, like last year, I want to aim for 2000-2500 per day so I have a few days where I don’t have to worry about it. Especially over weekends and the like.

Tonight is the official weigh in for the Chingada’s ‘Tache for Cash competition, so I’m not sure I will get in the last 1000 words or so, but it’s all for a good cause, so that’s okay.

My NaNo novel is something very random this year. Here’s my synopsis so far:

We have discovered other intelligent life, and their shared knowledge has placed humanity on the brink of an era of mass exploration. Meanwhile Kalar, a hitman with very few morals, has stolen a new AI ship capable of  almost anything. Of course, the ship doesn’t appreciate being stolen, and decides to make Kalar’s life difficult…

I have an idea about how the ship being able to turn Kalar’s dreams into reality through a glitch in it’s manufacturing,  but I’ll figure that bit out later.

Will try check in once in a while, but no promises.

Have a good Movember everybody 🙂
