Mel and Al Word Vomit The Zombie Apocalypse!

Do you think that would be a good title for a book? I think I’d have to add ‘And they whine a lot’ as a slogan, but, yeah!

So, I am currently at 19,062 words!!!

I’m well on track, and I have no idea how! Like, I have literally just word vomited the lot! But, it’s the sort of book that gives itself to that. It revolves around a twelve year old’s diary in the zombie apocalypse, so add in puberty, PMS, loneliness and zombie killing, and you got one poor little kid who has no idea what she’s supposed to do, and all these thoughts and feelings and once-in-a-life-time experiences are happening to her, and the only way she can make sense of it, is by writing the words down on paper (Which is then found by a forty-something-year-old man!)

I’m also in the mind-set that I have to write everyday, and that I can’t edit, which I think is just a feat in itself! If you can get them down, NaNo will be a breeze! You’ll get to 50k or whatever goal your wanting easily!

I’ll be honest though, this ‘book’ might turn in to a novella or even a short story when I edit it (maybe not a short story, but you get the jist), but at least I wrote my word count goal in 30 days, so, yeah! Like NaNo tells us. Quantity gives you Quality!

And, if you love the story enough, if your passionate about it, once all the words are down, you’ll be able to create something beautiful with (or without) them!

I gace had a few set backs, a couple days where not that much was written (in retrospect to the other days), and I’ve made a few changes with the story I’m writing, changes I didn’t think I’d need to do, but, none-the-less, even though my main character goes from third to first to third and to first perspective every time he talks and thinks something, at least I don’t have to worry about it until editing comes along!

Editing might kill you, but at least you can say that you wrote a book!

This first person, it’s so weird to write in! I’m getting the hang of it though, and I think I’ve distinguished between the two voices, but whether it stays first or third in the next draft, we won’t know until it happens!

Anyway, I need to get back to writing said story, so,

Just Keep Writing

And don’t edit nothing till you write ‘The End’ on November 30th!
