So I’ve done Nanowrimo 6 years in a row now, 4(5?) which I completed. It always comes to the same thing, I end up 50 thousand words of STUFF. This stuff usually ends up being one step away from crap with plotholes the size of the small planets, and they end up in far reaches of my computer on December 2nd, never to be touched again.


What has Nanowrimo taught me? I can write 50k of words in a month. That’s great! I can also finish really crappy novels. Even better! But where is the CHALLENGE in that? I already know I can do it. *yawn* Just the thought of producing yet another crappy book makes me sad.

So! Lets spice it up a bit! This year I want to do Nanowrimo a little different. Instead of writing a novel, I want to borrow the extremely supportive environment of Nano’s enforced plow towards 50k of writing to complete endings. I have at least 10 fanfics and two original novels that are not done, and all are sitting somewhere between rising action and denouement.

I’m going to prepare a list of fanfics that are sitting on the “I NEED AN ENDING PLS” pile and post it, and I’ll encourage all of you to tell me which ones you’d like to see ended. The endings might be crappy, mind, (very crappy and possibly OOC) but I’ll spend my 50k on working on the endings. THIS IS THE PLAN.

I know the TMNT fandom has about 10 fics in need of an ending. Seeing as the new TMNT cartoon is coming out on September 29th, I see a likelihood of these being worked on. *nods*

So yes, let me know which ones you’d like me to work on, and/or hate me the most for dropping and/or have already disowned me because I never finished. O_o

*rubs hands together* now THERE's a task I can get behind. Just gotta go look up the titles again, since I'd given up on them.... ;)

I went back and looked too and I was all D: over the fact that I literally did not finish one single fanfic in the TMNT fandom, except for the one-shots.


Seriously, how did you guys not kill me?

Personally? Because I've finished ONE multi-part Fic in the entirety of my writing fanfic career. Since I was, like, 14/15 years old. One.

Didn't have much room to talk. ;)

I'm debating on doing NaNoWriMo again, though I probably will. As for using it to complete fics - LOVE IT! I'd like to see you pick up both 'Strength' and 'Claimed'.

I wrote exclusively original stuff for the last NaNoWriMo and on top of that worked on my TMNT fics. I think this go round I'll just count it all towards the month end total. I'll probably have 50k done inside two weeks. :D

OHHH, you picked two of my favorites. :3 And Strength, if I remember correctly, was nearly complete. I think you'll probably be very lucky this November!

Yeah, I don't think you'll have any trouble hitting your word count. Good luck! :)

That's an awesome idea!

May I suggest you finish the Rev/Tech story you've been posting. X) I know it's old so it may not have an ending and I think it really needs one!

Also I miss you TMNT stuff, and I'd be so happy if you wrote an ending there!

My dear Lies_d, I believe you are literally the only person reading that Tech/Rev!

But yes, that one is actively being worked on along side of Thursday Morning. And, if I stop posting for whatever reason somewhere along the way, just send me an e-mail and I'll send you the file. XD

I only read your Invader Zim stuff, and a couple of the DBZ stories I read, and all of them are finished. Gah. I suck. XD

No you don't! And that is good, that I actually managed to finish stuff in those fandoms. Though I kinda suck for the half-arsed ending I put on Finale...
