FMP Nano, Week 2

So, ok. Here we go.
Nothing terribly dramatic this week. At present, we are at 15,765 words, which is 735 ahead of schedule. Awesome so far, right? Yeah, maybe.
See, I think I ran headlong into a problem. I don’t know if I have enough story to hit 50,000 with BGC. Bear in mind, lest you think I’m short changing the story, that BGC arcs 1-3 already clock in at over 65K words. The arcs tend to average 24K words each.
Which is kinda the problem.
I’m not sure there are six arcs in the story. It might end at five. (Waiting for the obligatory joke about bubblegum popping).
Never fear though faithful Internet! I have a cunning plan.
Should BGC conclude below 50,000 words, I have an awesome short story idea that will be thrown in gratis.
Does it break the laws of Nanowrimo? Like Han Solo stepping on an Endor twig, but that lead to cool things too, right?

FMP Nano update!

nonowrimologoTime to bring everyone up to speed on the first week of FMPNaNoWriMo! It’s been and odd ride so far, so here goes.
The basic upshot was, I planned to write three arcs worth of the Bubblegum Crisis Audio Drama over the month of November. I’d begun outlining, planning. I even had a rough draft, but it frankly sucked so I trashed it and began a new with the planning in early October. I got a lot of work done in the first half of the month, but dark clouds loomed. Unfortunately, the end of October proved to be a really awful time plan for a major writing project.

ggctinyI always knew we were going to lose one weekend near the end of the month to a convention down in Seattle. Geek Girl Con 13 was a lot of fun and extremely interesting. We spent most of Saturday in the lower levels, playing board games and even getting in a really fun Star Wars RPG session with the new game. Highly recommended!
Unfortunately, Sunday… Around 11AM I got a call that my Paternal Grandmother had entered hospice care. She died just as we reached the hospital.
I’m working on a blog post about my Nana, and how important she was to me not just as a grandmother, but as a writer. She was a really special lady and I want to share her with you all, but right now it’s still too close, so that’s for another time.
But it meant I spent the next two weeks arranging to travel to Oregon for her funeral and coming to grips with a huge part of life not being there anymore. Thoughts of writing, or planning, were light years down the list and I got next to nothing done.
So, November began, and I decided to just…wing it. No outline, nothing but vague ideas, and CHARGE!
As of Sunday night, the word count stood at 5,285 of 50,000. Right about on target.
