NaNoWriMo 2016 Recap ||| I Wrote A Novella + Snippets

NaNoWriMo is almost over, but it's over for me.  Yet again, I did not write the big 50,000 words.  But, I did write a novella!  (For some reason, I write super short.)

Here is a little bit about my NaNoWriMo 2016 experience!

  • I wrote 6k in one day.
  • I took a couple of breaks for various activities.
  • I randomly switched from past tense to present tense on the first page.

Snippet 1

(Please ignore all spelling/grammar errors.  It's the first draft.  Oh, and you can click the text to make the image larger.)

  • My MC, Nora Mae, is not a brave person.  In a fight or flight situation, she will RUN.
  • My characters travel to the set of Avengers: Infinity War, which I accidently put in Los Angeles instead of Atlanta.

Snippet 2

(For the record, I just made up stuff that might happen in Infinity War.)

  • I had an awesome time with this story.
  • I put a TON of references in it.  #sorrynotsorry

Snippet 3

  • I used Google Earth to walk around Russia, England, and France.
  • I used Google Translate a lot.

Snippet 4

  • Originally, the book wasn't going to be overtly Christian...but it just sort of...happened anyway.
