1) I WANT TO BE a serious writer, and, 2) As a serious writer, I will not have time for dating, going out, email, IM, phone calls, TV, games, or even household chores until December.

Here is MY PROFILE meleahrebeccah

This writing “project” was sent to me by my real life younger brother ADAM, and my “big sister.”

However, I have been told by a FEW people to keep my “book” off of the internet.

While I trust my big sister and her judgement, I am not sure I should POST my “book” here?

Since I am all consumed with the book project, I won’t have time to take on another writing project just for the month of November’s Writing Contest.

HMM.. anyone have any suggestions?

Should I post ‘THE BOOK’ in this site?

    OKAY… I spoke with BIG SISTER via IM, heres the DEAL with NANO:

    Meleahrebeccah: so, i signed up for NANO…i had to b/c i could NOT READ your stuff unless i was a memeber

    phoenix: lol / true

    Meleahrebeccah: now… is that copywritten? when you post that stuff? can / will people steal it?

    phoenix: i just sent you an email

    Meleahrebeccah: um kay

    phoenix: and yes, nano has fine print in the FAQ about people not stealing other people’s ideas an all / but it isn’t for books already started: its for new books
    /november is national novel writing month

    Meleahrebeccah: i was JUST reading FAQ

    phoenix: so the idea is to start a novel with nano, then get as far as you can / goal is 50ooo words but if you wonly write 10K you still have the beginning of a new book / its how ia got the XXXX going

    Meleahrebeccah: NICE

    phoenix: the first year i finished the 50K words then turned the “book” into five short stories later in the year. lol / the XXXX year i only wrote 20K in nano

    Meleahrebeccah: ….WHY is nano so SLOW, it took FOREVA for your stuff to laod? cuz so many people on it?

    phoenix: the first three days or so it is sooo sloooow because a million people are trying to uploa their first chapters and word counts and shit – then it evens out when people get down to just writing and updating once a day

    Meleahrebeccah: and is nano only around for november or do they do stuff all YEAR?

    phoenix: only november
    phoenix: its a big event

    phoenix: the rest of the year they take the money people donate and build libraries all over the world, give kids laptops in poor countries, etc

    Meleahrebeccah: holy awesome
    Meleahrebeccah: well then ILL DONATE, and i am glad i joined so i can READ YOUR WRITTING

    phoenix: lol
    phoenix: WRITE
    phoenix: write a new book
    phoenix: you’re good
    phoenix: i went in this year with NO TITLE, NO PLOT, and NO CHARACTERS
    phoenix: i just started writing, and BANG – a sotyr emerged

    Meleahrebeccah: me? no…. im really INTO the “book” i did the whole chapter ONE all over, such a difference now… I will email you copy (its like 5 pages) not too long…….well your story in nano is SOOOO good so far

    phoenix: ok, but its good practice to write fiction whil you write non-fiction. most authors write more than one thing at a time. πŸ˜‰
    phoenix: thank you
    phoenix: i’m writing my non fiction work stuff, my nano story, and still working on the smokers. lol

    Hey Melz!

    NaNo is for new books written in one month. Some years I finish,some years I don’t, but it’s a great way to get basic ideas on paper then work on the book the rest of the year. Go ahead and start a story
    separate form your memoirs, it’ll be fun. πŸ˜‰
