NaNoWriMo is basically this writing event that takes place in November. I have to write a novel from scratch within thirty days. Simple as that.
I’m getting ready for it since this is my first time joining NaNoWriMo. It’s also an opportunity for me to try to finish a novel for the first time. It may be difficult, but at least I’ll give it my best shot. The sad thing about this is that I’ll have to quit marching band in order to ready myself. The other thing is that I’ll be glad to quit band camp. I’m not much of a fast learner. They’re pressuring me to learn songs that’ll take me a slow time, especially with an instrument that I’m barely getting used to. It’s not a good thing for me. Then there’s the whole marching thing.
I can barely play a note while walking and they expect me to remember two full length songs by Thursday. I don’t think I can do that. I’m not Asian enough, sorry.
I went to a buddy’s house today for her birthday. Throughout the entire day, I suffered from teary, itchy eyes, sneezes, and little itchy bumps on my jaw line. My buddy has two cats. So I found out that I’m allergic to cats ._.
But I love cats. Oh, well, I supposed I can’t adopt them when I have the chance anymore. I’ll just watch them from afar.
So I do critiques and in return people do the same for me. One of the thing I really hate the most the when people tell me that my character needs a bit more backstory and details… when they’ve only read three pages of it ._.
Unless you got my brain and understand everything about them, how can you just go ahead and tell me that my character needs work? I’m the type of person who adds in backstory here and there all around the story, I’m not going to shove it all to you in those three pages. Unless you’re a whore for backstories. If you are, go read fantasy stories.
The other thing that I hate is when people go ahead and say, “You need to work on your grammar.” Okay? Can you at least tell me what? No? You’re not going to say? THEN DON’T FUCKING TALK TO ME ABOUT MY GRAMMAR! It’s hard enough that I have to go and reread through the entire thing, at least help me out with it rather than saying, “You have this small little grammar problem. Just a tiny bit.” Ugh!
