Another year means another NaNoWriMo project – and that’s always a ton of fun! This year, I’ll do a little bit of explaining throughout the month to show precisely what I’ll be up to and different things I’m doing to encourage myself. I hope it encourages you, too!
This year, I’m doing things differently than normal: instead of a 50,000-word novel, I plan to work on a graphic novel script with a personal word count goal of 25,000. The project is actually a rewrite and adaptation of a project I did a few years ago for Script Frenzy – except this time, it’s not a movie script but one for a graphic novel.
This year’s NaNoWriMo theme seems to be retro video games, which makes my superhero-themed graphic novel script project even more appropriate than usual! This month, I plan to have a few fun posts for everyone:
- This year’s NaNoWriMo playlist
- Halfpoint Progress
- Influences and ideas for reworking and revamping
- Final Update
This year’s manuscript is currently titled Project Ex: Welcome to the Academy and is the first volume in a four-part graphic novel series. Welcome to the Academy follows six new students at an academy for supersoldiers as they are assigned to the same bottom-ranked team and strive for the top spot. I’m not sure how long the graphic novel will actually be, and I’ve never tried a graphic novel script before – so we’ll see what happens!
What is your NaNoWriMo project for this year? What do you think is the most exciting thing about NaNoWriMo? More importantly, what music will you be listening to for NaNoWriMo this year?
