I finally broke 10,000 words (10,101 to be exact)! I'm sort of feeling frustrated because every word is so much effort. This story is not flowing well at all. I decided this year not to plan out my story at all, because the very first year I did NaNo (I wrote 50,000 words in 14 days because I forgot about Nano until halfway through November) I didn't plan it and I did so well!!! It's not working as well this time around... The idea really intrigued me at first and now it's just really boring.
I decided to write about a spoiled rich girl with a fancy warmblood horse that she can barely ride because he's unruly. Suddenly she finds herself transported to a world where horses live free on the prairie and people have to work hard every day just to survive and provide the basic necessities to their families. She has to learn what it's like to work for her things instead of just flashing around a piece of plastic and buying whatever she wants. She also has to learn to communicate with her horse (yeah he ended up there with her too somehow) without saddles, bridles, bits, spurs, whips, fences, etc. That's it. That was my whole idea when I started this. It was a nice idea, but there really is no plot yet. I have no idea how she got to this place (or if she is even there, maybe it's a dream) or what my end goal is for the story, so I'm just cranking out words while I try to think of a plot. :)
If any of you want to throw around plot ideas I welcome all suggestions! I'm going back and forth between this all being a dream at the end of the story or it being real and her deciding to stay with her new friends in the new world. Oh and it's fantasy by the way, if you hadn't guessed by the whole transporting to pretend worlds part. :D
Well, back to writing! Oh I forgot to mention I've only been writing one or two hours a day because I've been so busy! I'm hoping to have more time to write tomorrow. Good luck to my fellow bloggers who are participating in NaNoWriMo this year! I'm rooting for you guys!
