Do you want to be a writer? Do you want to write a book people would like to read? I know I do. And on my quest to create a readable book, I have learned many tips and tricks and gained some valuable knowledge on the does and don'ts in writing. I'd love share all that with you.

NaNoWriMo is over and so am I :(

OK, I made it sound more dramatic than it really is.
But I have LOST.
I wrote 11 thousand words out of 50 thousand required.
My story is in pieces.

This picture does no justice to the sadness I feel right now, but it is the closest I could find.
I also lied about the fact that I am over.
My story has changed, from a simple erotic thriller-comedy it has evolved into something more.
I am fascinated with the technology and weaponry of tomorrow. And that fascination has heavily influenced the story.
The inexperienced hacker became a social engineer with skills and a psychopathic violent streak.
My main antagonist became a leader of a bigger movement.
My main characters do have sex, but only once so far.
My anarchists are still funny, but they are not as disorganized and gullible as I assumed.
Yes, once again a story has started a riot and I was left with no choice but to fulfil its demands.
Guess, I have a busy December ahead of me.
I have a bunch of lovely, sadistic people, prodding and kicking me to finish the story.
It's so nice when people who read fragments are forcing you to write more, because they liked it.

And yet, here I am, sitting, staring at the empty page and thinking: I didn't win NaNoWriMo :(
Repeating like a mantra: WRITE, WRITE, KEEP WRITING!

Sorry I'm a bit late with this, but: All words are good, and your eleven thousand words sound AMAZING so far! :)

Hope your December was full of great writing, and best wishes for 2014.
