Introducing My Novel: The One With No Title!!! Or a Plot!!! Ft. Beautiful Books + Aesthetics + NaNoWriMo

As you all probably know, I get really excited about writing!!

It doesn’t matter if it’s MY writing or someone else’s writing or just WRITING IN GENERAL. I love it??? I probably love the idea of writing more than actually writing tbh. Just thinking about outlining and writing scenes and having a notebook and writing 100K words is much more appealing than actually doing it???

Especially that 100K. Thinking about it makes me tired but insanely proud over the nonexistent writing I’ve done.

Anyways, today I’ll be talking all about my WIP, novel, book, story, piece-I’ll-be-writing-for-NaNoWriMo, whatever you want to call it. I’m super super excited but also anxious because it’s HALFWAY THROUGH THE MONTH AND I HAVE NO OUTLINE.

Just kidding. I have like,, 500 words.

So, I don’t know if you remembered when I had you vote on what novel you wanted me to write, and the novel I ended up choosing got the second most votes!* If you still remember that post, the one I’m writing is Gold Glitter (except obviously not that title… I still need to think of one).

I am SOOOOOOO excited about this one. I’m not doing any schizophrenia rep because I don’t think I’m ready to tackle that big of a mental health disorder like that yet, but the three main characters are ace, bi, and gay—ALL QUEER YAS.

Also, it has evolved a lot from my original vision??? I don’t know exactly WHAT I was expecting but it certainly wasn’t this weird dark creepy mystery fantasy thing.

I’ll be linking up with Beautiful Books, hosted by Cait @ Paper Fury and Sky @ Further Up and Further In. Click on the link or the button to learn more about it and/or participate as well!

*In my MMM for August, I revealed the results, but then when I checked again, IT HAD CHANGED. SO I’M A LIAR NOW.

1. what inspired the idea for your novel, and how long have you had the idea?

I’d read on some person’s blog (I forgot whose) that they thought of words/items they wanted to include into their novel and it helped inspired them, and then I tried it myself!! And I thought of:

ghosts. libraries. books. food. socks. queens. daggers. gold. yellow. brothers. poles.

That really helped get me get inspired and just expand on all sorts of ideas. And altho what I originally imagined is quite different from what it is now, it was STILL VERY HELPFUL OKAY.

I’ve had this idea for about… um… three months?? Two?? I barely remember what I wore yesterday how am I supposed to remember THIS???

flowers

2. describe what your novel is about!

Well. Uh. This is awkward.

I don’t really know what my novel is about??

Okay, I lie. I know the MOST IMPORTANT part of it, but I haven’t formed a plot out of it. Conflict? Yes. Problem? Yes. Storyline with all the obstacles the characters have to overcome and everything in between?? NO.

But hey, I’m slowly figuring it all out! I mean, I have half a month left to finish start continue my outline, so I should be able to think of SOME things, at least???

Basically, what I’ve come up with so far is:

  • the land wants to cleanse itself
  • so it does this by killing off the people it thinks are “bad”
  • and then trapping their souls eternally
  • hmm should I reveal more or would it be a spoiler
  • yeah it would be a spoiler
  • so all I’m going to add is that Maire (the MC) gets hallucinations

So yeah. Everything above plus a few more things is all I’ve figured out!! And we’re halfway through October!! Help me!!

(Also, huge thanks to May and Sarah for helping me out one day when I was despairing and trying to figure out WHAT THE HECK this was all about. Love you!!)

flowers

3. what is your book’s aesthetic? use words or photos or whatever you like!

So. I created my Pinterest board BEFORE I really knew what my novel was about?? So there are a lot of irrelevant images on it. BUT IT’S AESTHETIC AND THAT’S ALL THAT MATTERS.

gold ~ glitter ~ ghosts ~ dreams ~ nightmares ~ souls ~ books ~ socks

flowers

4. introduce us to each of your characters!

I haven’t exactly, er, worked out their appearances?? IT’S THE INSIDE THAT MATTERS OKAY.

MAIRE ~ queen of Poland ~ Polish (…obviously) ~ 17 ~ asexual ~ sweet & sappy & kind & cares about everyone and everything ~ naive ~ negative ~ speaks her mind ~ loves to read & go on walks ~ gets lost a lot ~ daydreamer ~ ambivert ~ Hufflepuff

ROMY ~ ghost prince of Poland ~ half Polish, half Spanish ~ 18 ~ “so gay tho”* ~ sassy & sarcastic ~ not serious enough ~ passionate ~ self-doubtful ~ (over-)protective ~ has trouble controlling emotions ~ loves eating & knitting ~ extrovert ~ Gryffindor

NIKO ~ ghost prince of Poland ~ half Polish, half Spanish ~ 17 ~ bisexual ~ sassy & sarcastic & serious enough ~ maaaaaybe has anxiety ~ distrustful & paranoid ~ reserved ~ loves reading & knitting socks & eating ~ introvert ~ Ravenclaw

And then some other minor characters that I haven’t developed yet. :))

*Literally what I wrote in my brainstorming doc.

flowers

5. how do you prepare to write? (outline, research, stocking up on chocolate, howling, etc.?)

OUTLINE. I freak out if I don’t know what I’m writing, so my outline is CRUCIAL.* Food is also essential to my survival and sanity as a writer, and air is vital to my life. So I guess those things are kind of important. Kind of.

I also WANT to research and sometimes I do? But I usually plan to do it later and then end up forgetting. (What else would youe xpect.)

Does procrastinating count as preparing??? And screaming and whining to my friends about how hard writing is??? And wasting time on Pinterest looking for “writing advice”???

*Yeah May, so, um, let’s write the CRUCIAL OUTLINE???

flowers

6. what are you most looking forward to about this novel?

I am really just excited to WRITE?? I have actually WRITTEN anything in a while, and I honestly miss it a lot.

I’m also super excited about the characters! Romy and Niko are sassy and that’ll definitely be fun for me to write. Plus everyone is so SMOL and akdjajjfjajfjsjatial I love them.*

Image result for i love them gif

Oh and I think I’ll be adding in some poetic/lyrical/prosey parts from the land’s perspective (suggested by May and inspired from Our Dark Duet) and I am really hyped for that!! I mean, weird thoughts and feelings from a dark land being thing??? Yes please.

*Despite the fact that I haven’t exactly, you know, DEVELOPED THEM.

flowers

7. list 3 things about your novel’s setting.

  1. the land is alive
  2. believing it is cleansing itself of bad people
  3. by killing them and trapping their souls
  4. oh and Poland maybe??? idk

flowers

8. what’s your character’s goal and who (or what) stands in the way?

HAHAHAHHAHHA. This is why I SUCK: I haven’t figured out the character’s goal??? I thiiiiiink that her goal is to be as good as a ruler as her parents were. (A horrible goal, I know.)

Actually, I think that it’ll be that she wants to help her people in some way. I don’t know WHY or HOW. But that’s definitely a possibility.

What I definitely know is: The land is in her way. It’s killing off people and she has to stop it. (Of course, she doesn’t know that it’s killing people!! Nor does she know the land is evil! NOR DO I KNOW WHY SHE HAS TO STOP IT. But I’m okay. I’ll figure it out. Eventually.)

Image result for despair gif

flowers

9. how does your protagonist change by the end of the novel?

Maire will probably become more mature (since she’s kinda naive right now), learn more about her sexuality and identity as an ace person, and also realize that her life isn’t ALL for other people and that SHE has to live too.

And probably some other things… WHY IS WRITING SO HARD. I just want to write this story and not worry about plot and character arc and asl;dfjasldfjalsdjfasldjfafdafj;lkad.

flowers

10. what are your book’s themes? how do you want readers to feel when the story is over?

Something that I want to explore in this novel is the concept of good and evil. If you’re killing people to get a better civilization in the end, is it good? If you want to stop something from killing others but end up with a “badder” society, is it good? If you let no one eat any mangoes to save it all so everyone can have one, IS IT GOOD????

Okay so maybe not the mangoes thing, but you get the point.

I also want to explore some topics like sexuality and suicide, and what it means to live for others but also yourself.

(WOW THAT WAS REALLY DEEP I’M SO PROUD OF MYSELF.)

(Aaaand I just ruined it.)

Also, this is the reason why this FANTASY THING* IS CHARACTER-DRIVEN how cool is that??? It’s all about the characters’ growths and journeys and F;AJLSKDFJALSDFJ I’m so excited.

*I don’t… exactly know what genre this fits under.

flowers

A few more facts about my novel because I need this information as much as you do!! Aka I’m figuring this all out as I type it!! I am NOT failing as a writer, where did you get that idea!!

  • possible title: Glittered Ghosts
  • or Gold, Glitter, and Ghosts
  • something involving ghosts and/or gold and/or glitter
  • I don’t even know how gold or glitter is related to this story but you know what,, it’s aesthetic
  • this will DEFINITELY be written in third person
  • I love no other person than third
  • hahahhahahaha I love my puns
  • anyways,, I don’t know if this will be in present or past tense?? I’m more comfortable with past, but I feel like with the poetic/lyrical parts, it’d work better in present (and it’ll be weird if I suddenly switch tenses)
  • my goal with this novel for NaNoWriMo is 25K words because I don’t think I’ll hit that 50K
  • #when #youre #confident #in #yourself
  • like I said earlier, it’s very character-driven (not common for fantasies!) so it’s focused a lot on the characters rather than the plot
  • which is my excuse for not having a plot yet ;)))
  • oh and you can add me as a buddy on NaNoWriMo here! I’m @shroudedmoonlight

ALSO. My future was told by this fortune cookie:

  1. AHHHHH I’M SO EXCITED THAT YOU PICKED THIS STORY. And I love the name Gold Glitter but I feel like it’s not thAt fitting?? Or maybe it is idk YOU’RE the one who knows your story, not me lol. I always struggle with titles lol mine are either “plot bunny #29” or “the prince story” lmao. I’m bad with titles as it is but I also feel like I need to know the entire story (aka have it written) to know what I want it to be called! It’s a struggle XD

    ANYWHO, I’M SO EXCITED THAT YOUR CHARACTERS ARE POLISH THIS IS HONESTLY THE BEST THING EVER. I was going to make at least one of the characters in my WIP Polish as well because I CRAVE POLISH REP. Or just books set in Poland! GIVE ME MORE POLAND-RELATED BOOKS PLS AND THANK YOU.

    Anyway, I’m rambling but your story sounds SO COOL sand i’m super excited and i can’t wait for NaNo and to hear more updates about this baby AND THE QUEER REP YAAAASSSS I’M JUST SO EXCITED ABOUT IT ALL OKAY BYE

    1. YES I’M SO EXCITED TOO!!! And hahah I didn’t really love the name Gold Glitter??? But yeah it doesn’t really fit the story, I’ll probably go with Glittered Ghosts. Omg I SUCK at titles. Like the only good titles I come up with are for poems and like,, NOT THE REALLY IMPORTANT NOVELS. 😂

      There are SO many other places than America that books can be set in??? I write mainly American settings because that’s where I’m from… BUT STILL. (I’ll need a lot of help on everything Poland-related btw. 😂)

        I’d probably write my books in German or Polish settings bc it’s what I’m most familiar with—writing a setting that’s different from your own requires SO MUCH RESEARCH and I’d like to avoid that as much as I can for now 😂😂😂

        ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ and I don’t know??? I still need to figure out if I want my writing segment thingy to be structured and whether I want a name for it (like your Writerly Updates) or if I’ll just do random updates every once in a while??? IF UR UP FOR BRAINSTORMING HIT ME UPPPP

  2. omg you use Staedtler pens too?? They’re only the best writing tools in the world..
    I’m doing a novel about an 11 year old dealing with segregation in 1963. And how she’s trying to shut down some store that doesn’t let in black people or something. It’s confusing (but aren’t all plots?) Going for 50k but since it’s contemporary I don’t expect to need all those words. I want at least 35k.
    Hey I think your novel is a mix of dystopian-ish-ness and fantasy. I don’t know if that’s a thing or not but there you go.

  3. This is my first time ever doing National Novel Writing Month, and I’m both EXCITED 😄 and UNSURE 😶 and only have like enough plot in my head to last TWO CHAPTERS… 😰So you’re not alone in the whole ‘I NEED TO FIGURE OUT MY PLOT’ thing. I mean, I have the idea, and how it should begin and end, and this is the first time I’m going to try and write something a bit romantic (I’ll probably fail cause I make things awkward) so this is a bit scary.
    HAHAHAHA.
    I need more coffee.

    And I’m checking you out on your NaNoWriMo thing. Again, I’ve never done this before, so I’ve got no clue what that ‘Add as Buddy’ button does but it looks nice??? Should I press it??? 😕

    Yeah so now I’m just rambling in a comment, so I should probably stop. 😆

    I still don’t know whether or not I’ll participate in NaNo. I want to, but I have no time, teensy tiny ideas, a WIP to edit, still no time to ever make it to 50K… I do NOT KNOW what to do ahah, it’s such a stuggle.
    ANYWAY, I love your characters already – I actually thought the MC had my name when I first read it ahah, I got weirdly sad when I realized it wasn’t Marie haha. #awkward. LOVE the Polish origins and the diversity and YAY. I can’t wait for you to write and THE SNIPPETS and everything ❤

  6. Best of luck! I appreciate your enthusiasm soooo much, you have no idea! I’m interested in writing a book myself, so now I’m in my brainstorming phase as well, so I get you girl, outlines suck! My advice for whenever you’re in writers block is a, take a step back, relax, re charge your batteries, get inspired again and then continue, but also, don’t wait until the moment is perfect, because it never will be. Just write, whatever words, sentences etc come to mind, set a goal of 200-300 words a day and just write whatever your heart desires. Once you get in the rotation, more ideas will come, and you’ll end up writing more than the 300 words. Much love, best of luck! <33

    I’m doing Nano! This will be my first official one since I’ve only done the camps and I want to go for the whole 50,000, but the most words I’ve written during a nano event was around 27,000. So as long as I get to about 28,000 I’ll have beaten my personal best so I’ll be happy. 😊
    My novel is the fourth book (I’ve only written the first book so far but whatever) in a series about a nationally competitive dance team. (Kind of inspired by Dance Moms but not as crazy😂)
    I have been thinking about this series for years and I already know my characters and have a lot of notes, so I’m not completely starting from scratch, but I need to write the outline still. I have zero words. Literally nothing. So you’re doing better than me. 😂

    I think your idea about the land cleansing itself is really interesting! My 2nd NaNo was kinda similar but not really…it was a fantasy where one child always served as a proxy for all of humanity’s evil. Or something like that. It was a long time ago and the plot never really worked out for me. XD

  18. It’s okay not to know what you’re doing yet. Sometimes the best outlining has happened for me the day before NaNoWriMo 🙂 I also set non-50K goals when I participate in NaNo. Mostly because I write short, but also because quality over quantity, right?

    I won’t be participating this year because I want to focus on revising my WIP from last summer but wish you luck!

    I definitely love the sound of your WIP though! Don’t worry about not having finished your outline before NaNo starts, you can always work on your outline during NaNo too if you get stuck and you can always go back and edit if things don’t make sense 🙂 Good luck May! You’ve got this
