The Life of Bam
by Angelito Jr Nambatac





I will start my final preparation for Thrusday's writing-madness tomorrow. I have things to tie tightly this day before starting to commit for another work. This is a secret project, actually, and I can't reveal it. :) It's an experiment... However, the only thing I can tell you about is my novel for this year's Nanowrimo... I hope I could also put up a final page for THE LIFE OF BAM where you can read the synopsis and meet the characters. Isn't that fair? I want you, my friends and readers, to be part of my writing. We will together experience the birth of BAM and his friends and together shed some teary moment as we end it soon. So, I am encouraging you to help me write and realize the story of BAM

Can you be with me till the end of Novermber?

My Character and Plot map for my novel!
I didn't plan to come up an early noveling map to be used this November. But last night, a brown-out all throughout our neighborhood gave me an idea what to write for NanoWrimo. I love you to present my temporary title "The Life of Bam". It's a  story of a typical Filipino poor family living in the squatters area in the Philippines and all of a sudden an event happen and led to the great turn of their lives.

I was amazed last night because, unknowingly I was able to make a story that was unplanned. To be honest I didn't have any story in mind for write next month but thanks to the brown-out a bright light bulb shone over my head. :))

Do you have a noveling/writing map too?

...Hello new blogger DESIGN!


Still happy though my Flash Drive was lost. :)))

a.g.n jr
My Ebooks.

My Writing files.

And all other resources that I gathered for a year.

GONE! Like a blink of an eye. :(

All of these things was in my flash drive. I've gone crazy now because most of my files that I will use this November was also there. OMG! I'm helpless... :( Hahai... I hope I can have my flash drive back ASAP.

November is fast approaching and I have to be fast in my preparation "ritual" too for this year's Nanowrimo. Before this very day, I already setup this blog for the sole reason for Nanowrimo-ing. I wanna start documenting my Nanowrimo experience this year and onward (though I started doing Nanowrimo since 2012). I want to gather too my Nanofriends in one blog and able to feature them as well. I love to write with people who love to write too. Its somewhat a motivation-driving force to finish a novel.

For this day of my nano-preparation I did:

  • Trimmed my hair
    • I hate to be interrupted just because I need to trim my hair. Often, my hair becomes the reason why I don't want to write. All the more if it's long, I feel like they try to get my ideas out of my head and leaving me helpless. :) I dunno if you experienced that kind of feeling. Hahaha. So, I need to trim my hair months before NanoWrimo.
Hahaha! Untidy, Yes. It is... :)
  • Made my own progress calendar
    • For me to be updated as how I progress through the whole writing month, I made a half manila paper size calendar. (I will let you see how it looks like on my next post.) I will be putting the number of words I able to achieve within a day and marked it with a nanowrimo sticker (which I made myself). Making a progress calendar really helps a lot. I made one like this when I first started NanoWrimo last 2010 and succeeded. But last year, I didn't make one therefore I failed. I believe that this year I will finish the challenge with a very big victorious grin. :))

  • Downloaded a writing software.
    • I'm not very confident to just use MS Word (Raise your right hand if you feel like that too.) I wanted a writing software interface that gives me a kick of "HEY! WRITE! WRITE! WRITEEEEEE!". So for this year, I will be using Scrivener(Windows) and yWriter5 as a back up software. 

  • Downloaded an archiving software (a timeline to be exact)
    • Because I wanna document every move I make, I downloaded a timeline software where I can put my writing activities. I used TimeLine. Try it.

What preparation will you do for NanoWrimo?
