My National Novel Writing Month Novel

Hey Dreamers! Why am I excited for November? Because it’s National Novel Writing Month! Last year I started late with no plan. That won’t happen this time. I’m going to share my plan for this novel with you guys. Here we go:

My Idea:

I got this Idea, when we traveled to the Redwood Forest. It was amazingly beautiful. I loved it. So here is my idea:

A girl goes on a school field trip to the Redwood Forest. The class stays at a hotel near the forest. Her roommate is a really shy girl, whom she doesn’t like. They find some sort-of clue that,  leads them to to the Redwood Forest to find some treasure. They stumble upon some unexpected circumstances as they adventure into the Redwoods…

That was a horrible synopsis.

Characters:

Okay, so here’s the thing, before I wrote this post I had no idea what to name my characters. Since, I’m such a procrastinator, I went and searched up names and I found the perfect names. Or so I think.

Eileen Jane Anderson:

  • Has always lived in California.
  • Very smart
  • Loves Science
  • Environmentalist
  • Secretly loves knitting
  • Wants to be a doctor when she grows up
  • Loses her temper easily
  • Most afraid of the effects of pollution
  • What she wants most: To make the world a better place

Jia Yang:

  • Moved from China when she was four
  • Loves playing the Violin
  • Shy
  • Has a hard time standing up for herself
  • Sensitive
  • Wants to be a musician when she grows up
  • Most afraid of being isolated
  • What she wants most: A best friend

So those were my characters. I was thinking of either switching the points of views, so 1 chapter would be in Eileen’s point of view and the 2nd chapter would be in Jia’s point of view. Or I could do it in third point of view. What do you guys think I should do?

That’s all the planning I’ve done for now. Are you guys doing NaNoWriMo this year? What’s your story about? What do you think of my story idea?

Dreamer Diaries #2

Hey Dreamers! Today I decided to do another Dreamer Diaries post. Here we go:

♥♥♥♥♥

I have 59 followers right now. Wheeeeeeee! That’s a lot. My goal is to get to a 100 before the year ends. I have my fingers crossed that we can get there.

♥♥♥♥♥

Believe it or not I still haven’t designed my dividers and sign~off. Like my header, I wanted to draw something and use that for the sign~off and dividers The problem is, I have no idea about what I want to draw.

Any ideas for what I should do for my sign~off and dividers?

If you do, please leave a comment.

I finally finished reading Harry Potter. It was amazing. Once, I had put a hold on it from the school library. I waited three months for it, and I still didn’t get it. Now that I’m in 7th grade, my Language Arts teacher had the book in her little classroom library. I immediately asked her if I could borrow it. She said yes, so I spent days carrying that book around everywhere.

If you could have one of the three hallows: the invisibility cloak, the resurrection stone or the elder wand. Which one would you choose?

I would pick the invisibility cloak.

For all the book dragons out there like me, do you ever love a book so much that you carry it around everywhere just in case you have time to read it?

At the start of the school year, the school told us that they were going to have a time capsule that would be opened in about 10~20 years. So we were put into groups, and each group had to make an artifact that represents the school. The school chose 4 artifacts that would go in the time capsule. I was in a group with 3 other amazing girls. This is what we made:

Yup! A mini~library. Isn’t it adorable? They chose ours! YAY! The principal told us that she loved ours very much and she asked us to give a speech in front of the whole school. We were the only student speakers. We were so excited! It went great. Yesterday my mom took me and 2 of the other girls for ice cream to celebrate.

If you built a time capsule, what would you put in it?

♥♥♥♥♥

I hope you enjoyed that post. Have a great day!

Dream On
