NaNo 2010

Anyone of my friends doing NaNo 2010? Anyone? 
I'm Varelia over yonder on the NaNo webside, and I'm desperately in need of writing buddies, otherwise I'll end up procrastinating from NaNo with university work. Seriously. I have three presentations and a huge workload before Christmas :-)

And I'll be working on Tanz der Masken/A Dance of Masks (anyone have a better idea for translating the title? I really don't like it). I've been working on that one for about eight years, and it's still only about 15000 words in total. There's so much more material - and blank spaces - that I just didn't get round to typing up/writing yet.

Word counts, excerpts, rants and the like will be over at [ profile] boys_of_bedlam That's what one has a writing journal for ;-) 

NaNo 2010

I've been pondering this for a while, what with that reading list this semester (~ 4000 pages, to be found here ) and all the other things I have to do. Now I have come to a decision - I will be attempting NaNo once again.
I have not decided on a project yet, though. I feel like I want to continue with TdM, but I also have ideas for a collection of short stories in Romantic style.
Mind that I only use that term in its literary history-sense, that is, denoting a certain literary period which, with regard to German literature at least, comprises philosophical musings, fairytales, fantastic escapism and scholarly research into the Middle Ages (among other things) written between ~ 1790 and 1848. Roughly.

What I certainly won't do: Smut, fan fiction, romance, horror, ninjas, zombies. (I won't exclude vampires just yet...) Yes, I am that weird.
