WWW Wednesdays by: Should Be Reading
Usually the questions for W…W…W… Wednesdays are:
• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?
Since I am not currently reading anything due to NaNo, I have not finished reading anything recently, and I have no clue what I’ll read next, I have decided, just for today, to change up the questions a bit.
So here are my W…W…W… Wednesday questions of today:
What are you currently writing?
Currently, I am writing my NaNoWriMo novel, which is untitled at the moment. I don’t want to give away too much what it is about, but the genre is Dystopia (no, I do not categorize that with science-fiction), and it follows the life of a 15 year old girl named Lola.
I have finally reached 40,000 words, and now I only have 10K more to go before I reach the NaNo goal of 50,000 words! I am very excited to “win” and finish with NaNo (though I will miss it), however, I still have a lot more work to do even after I reach the 50K. I have 40K and I am only beginning Chapter 5 (there will be 12 chapters), so my book will run way longer than 50,000 words.
Where are you currently writing?
I am writing where I am currently living, in Madrid, Spain. There are three floors (including a basement) in the house where I have been living for the past three years, and then there is a mini loft – I guess you could call it that – that sits above the bedrooms on the third floor. That is my current writing office.
My desk is positioned right in front of the window, which I open up while I’m writing to get a breeze and to hear the sounds of outside. No one usually goes up in the loft so I have it all to myself, though I can still call down to the boyfriend to bring me a cup of tea when I need it. And it has a good atmosphere up there; I need a good atmosphere to write. So, I am happy with my current writing location.
Here, I just took a picture of it for you all to see:
Why are you currently writing?
I’m currently writing because I’m participating in NaNo. I’m participating in NaNo because I have always wanted to write a novel (I grew up wanting to become a writer) but have never had the time or motivation to actually sit down and write. NaNo has given me that motivation and inspiration, and I have made time for it all.
I am quite surprised that I have actually made it this far and am so close to my 50K word goal. It feels great. And that feeling I get when I write is why I am currently writing.
If you are also doing NaNo, and have not read any books lately, then feel free to put your answers to my questions above in the comment section below!
Happy Writing and Reading All!
