NaNoWriMo: Double Dare!

He, NaNoWriMos! Just- and by ‘just’ I mean two days ago- reached over 9,188 words and felt pretty darn good about it. So I had to stop for a bit because of school and stuff (and I took a nap …which threw off my plans) so I didn’t get a chance to get back on it to get to the 15,000 words like I wanted to. *sad face*
But I can do that later since, because of said nap, I was able to arise at the glorious hour of 4:30 in the morning. So I’m doing my school work, which I can appropriately estimate as my finish time ( if I don’t get distracted) at around 9 or 10 ( give or take distractions).
So I was “taking a break”( DISTRACTION!!) to see what was going on on WriMo and to check out how much writing I’m going to have to conjure and what do ya know? I see dares *evil grin*
Did any of you watch that little video? You know, where this lady tells you a bunch of dares?
Yeah that!
I have decided to do them all!
And by “all” I mean three….
Don’t judge me!
I’m doing Tom Selleck’s mustache, 3 am wake up, and the Spy pov thingy ( or at least that’s how I’m doing it)
So! which dares are you guys doing?
Wanna dare each other 😉 *evil grin*
I promise I won’t give you anything (two or three) too crazy.
Scouts honor! ( was never a girlscout… or boy… scout)
How’s your word count? Are you stuck?
*sad face*
If you are, there are forums with awesome inspirational ideas!
Just, please, no plagiarism.
There was even this funny forum about “Cliches”.
Yes! I’ll admit, I’m using one ( or two… or five) cliches. But! my characters are aware of it. So… That’s okay.. Right?!?!
Anyway! check out the forums for inspiration if you get stuck and one of the BEST ideas I have ever heard is….. *Drumroll*
Throw something random and just crazy in your story just to, you know, make it interesting. Because, and believe me, if you’re falling asleep on your own story because it’s THAT boring ( which I’m sure is what happened with Margret Mitchell when she wrote Gone with the Wind) you might want to spice it up a bit with some oddity 🙂
