as I have mentioned months
years ago that I wanted to continue writing a novel I’ve started in 2013 for NaNoWriMo. Well wanted and tried are the hottest keywords you can use for my project. Because it didn’t get that far.
But first of all for those who don’t know what NaNoWriMo is. NaNoWriMo, short for National November Writing Month, is a writing program for people all around the world who set the goal to write 50.000 words from November 1st to November 30th. That word count would mean a short novel or a great start for a bigger novel. Here you can visit their website for more information.
Naturally, since I wanted to write stories since I can think (as well as drawing), this project just seems perfect to me. Before NaNoWriMo, I tried my luck with ScriptFrenzy (in 2009 I think?!), a little brother project by NaNoWriMo in which you should write a hundred page movie/TV/play script within the month of April. Sadly, this project wasn’t continued due to financial issues. This was actually perfect for people who weren’t sure if they could write 50.000 words in a month, such as me. But hey, I wasn’t even able to manage that (I think I wrote 50 pages or such, I sadly can’t find the whole script anymore).
So even if I haven’t finished my project (I really haven’t written more than 18.000 words) I just wanted to show you this project. Maybe it’s something new for you to discover.
My NaNoWriMo Project 2016
Working Title: Run For Seven
Year I started with it: November 2013
Word count (so far): 18.497

What is Run For Seven about?
Run For Seven is about The Seven Sins coming down to Earth as humans to find their replacements beyond High School students (might gonna change that to College students). Little do they know that the Sins are awaited by a religious group of Hunters who want to see the Sins dead and plunge the world into chaos to reinvent the world and form them after their believes. Not to forget that if the Sins can’t find their replacements in time, the system of the world gets damaged and slowly but steadily will repel humanity. So time is running fast for the Seven as they not only have to find their replacements but also convince them that the newbies are in fact the new Sins. Will they save the world before it’s too late?
Far too many characters
There are going to be quite a few characters, I even had a list for all of them because there are going to be fourteen main characters. It’s more reasonable to pick a few main ones telling the stories and let the others ride along, as much as it feels wrong to do so. But seven sins and seven replacements are a lot, yeah. Oh and not to forget the villains and some side characters to add the fun. I need a clipboard to organize literally everything, this is madness for me.
But it sounds fun in my head…!
As almost everything does. That story never lets me go and I hope that I will be able to finish it. There is some epic adventure ahead of me and my characters. With the motivation of NaNoWriMo 2016 I might start planning it and be able to write some more. At least I’ve written a bit about it last year, although it’s mostly blabla, my favorite kind of writing. Forever continuing and never getting to the point.
