NaNoWriMo is in full swing. Ah, it is so nice to have a project that I really truly ENJOY working on. If only I could forget college applications, geography class, and content writing for a while and just FOCUS on it. Alas, life is life. We’ve got to learn to be happy while doing things we don’t one hundred percent love. Still, I AM LOVING NANOWRIMO. I love having goals. I love challenges. I love writing. I love meeting people. This has been absolutely perfect.
I decided to pick up one of my forgotten projects ( a story I came up with in junior high and haven’t revisited since). It is a fairytale in a kingdom where two races are warring with eachother. The story follows three teenagers as their lives interweave with each other and the fate of their homeland.
I was inspired by Sky from Further Up and Further In to use pinterest for inspiration and brainstorming. This was something I have never tried before, but I found that it was extremely fun! I was able to find some pictures that somewhat matched the visualizaiton I had in my head for settings etc. None of the pictures are perfect matches, but they are helping me expand my ideas and work on creating a rich setting for my fairytale.
Let me tell you. It was like going on a pinterest vacation in my own created world.
I think I could get used to this.
