Crafting a Novel in 30 Days

November is half over and you're thinking "Wait! Where did Ava go?"

Well, I've been absorbed in a little thing called NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writer's Month). It's where you write a 50,000-word novel in 30 days, beginning Halloween night at midnight and ending at 11:59 PM on November 30th.

I can totally do this.

Unfortunately my crafting is taking a back seat. BUT the month is half over and I've surpassed the halfway mark of 25,000 words! Yay.

In other news, I did not win the League of Legends costume contest, but I got a nice email saying they really liked my Riven costume... and mentioned some other secret stuff I am not allowed to divulge. (Really, they said I had to keep it a secret so I can't tell you). Apparently there were over 350 costume entries. Wow. O_o

Now I just need to add straps to all of the armor so I can actually wear it while moving. Heh. Then I can wear it to PAX Prime 2012!


  1. i so wish i could do this. i'm to shy i guess.

  2. Wait, WHAT? Too shy to write novels or too shy to wear costumes in public? O_o For one, most writers are introverts so if they can do it, you can do it too. For two, I think everyone needs to wear a costume in public on a day other than Halloween AT LEAST once in their life, if for the sole reason of having people stare at you and judge you and forcing yourself to realize IT DOESN'T MATTER. Like, if I want to do something like wear this outfit, or write this novel, and someone else would rather be judgemental than entertained, that's their problem. :)

  3. opps....sorry about that. been out of it lately since i have homework up to the roof. i meant about i'm shy about wearing a costume in public and i wish i could do this is for writing a novel. sorry my bad there. your so sweet to say its others peoples problem if they stare. HUGS!!!!!! :)

  4. If you're shy about wearing a costume in public, join a costuming group. It is much more fun and less frightening when you have a group of people in costumes. Then plainclothers are staring at the group, not just you. :)
