NaNoWriMo 2012 Friending Meme  
It's like a day early (at least before October) but I'm excited, so I figured I'd post the meme. :P I added some new questions to it this year.


Have fun!


For anyone who wants to pimp the meme/community in general:

Dude, ANOTHER CONNECTICUT PERSON!

We don't have an ML this year. Or at least, my part of Connecticut doesn't, which sucks. Not that I would've been at any of the write ins anyway, because the MLs we had in the past would have the meet ups too far away or on days when I couldn't go. I've only been to ones that I held, which...haha, I held one last year and ONE person (and her mother, who was just starting to do NaNo that day, and it was like...the second to last week) showed up.

Anyway, hi!

What kind of music do you like listening to during NaNo for inspiration? Depeche Mode, Joy Division, Mötley Crüe, and for this year, I'm piling up the Derek Hale/Stiles Stilinski fanmixes since they're utter perfection for this year's TW-inspired story.
What's one thing you're struggling to figure out about your NaNo? (Or list up to five things) Do I want an outline? How to write in more characters when I only want to focus on the two MC's; can I manage to write and play Warcraft simultaniously?

Anything else you want to tell us? I am terribly obsessed with Teen Wolf, lycans in general at the moment; also a lot of my posts on my personal journal (ghosts) is related to mental illness - if you can't handle that, you'll probably just want to friend skagboys or follow the Tumblr I linked above XD

Little does he know, the world has already started changing around him, and his lies may reflect more truth than he understands...

What scene(s) are you looking forward to the most? I don't outline or prewrite, so I can't answer this :p

What kind of music do you like listening to during NaNo for inspiration? I tend not to listen to music while I write, but I do tend to listen to a lot of instrumental/jazz/electronic during the month because music with lyrics influences me too much.

NaNoWriMo:

NaNoWriMo profile link: http://www.nanowrimo.org/en/participants/solara1357
Genre: Horror/Supernatural
Synopsis: In 1600s London, an orphan girl steals an old book from a bookstore near her home. She soon discovers it was a book of necromancy. She hides it away, knowing such things are better left alone. After almost dying of plague, the temptation is too much for her to handle and she begins to dabble.
What scene(s) are you looking forward to the most? I don't know yet. Probably the flashbacks.
Do you plan on posting any excerpts anywhere other than on the NaNo site? I might post something here. Don't know yet
What kind of music do you like listening to during NaNo for inspiration? depends on what I'm trying to write.
What's one thing you're struggling to figure out about your NaNo? (Or list up to five things)
1) My main character. I know her, but no idea what her name is or what she looks like.
2) The middle of the story. I know how it begins and ends, but not how the characters get to the end.
3) The amount of gore in the story. If I go all out and write what I'm thinking, I'm worried it'll be too much.
