Writing Wednesday #17

I don’t know about y’all, but I’m busy gearing up for NaNoWriMo. I’m a little nervous this year because unlike the last two times I have done this, I do not have a book I am jumping up and down excited to write. I have a couple books I would like to write, but I’m not sure I have enough inspiration to get though them. But, after some thought, I decided to write a Beauty and the Beast re-telling. Now I picked this partly because it entails doing a lot of fun stuff as gear up. I get to re-watch a Beauty and the Beast play, watch the animation, find pictures on Pinterest, and find fairytale like music to listen to while writing. 

(If you have any suggestions of good fairytale music, please comment and tell me!)

If any of y’all are participating in NaNoWriMo, why don’t you hop over to my profile and buddy me?  

I’m going to try to ‘introduce’ you to all my main characters before November is up, so here is the first one. My heroin, Gracie.

Gracie is a twenty three year old figure skater, ready to get out of the small competitions and onto bigger ones. When she finally gets her chance, it comes at a much bigger cost then she had originally thought. 

Have you ever done NaNoWriMo before? 
What’s your favorite part?


  1. I hope you have fun doing NaNo this year! Didn't you once write a story about a figure skater named Gracie? Is this the sequel?? :)


    P.S. Are you going to listen to the soundtrack from Beauty and the Beast (the animated version)? :)

    1. Thnaks! No, I started, but I just couldn't make it work, This is the same story, I'm re-starting and hopfully making it work this time. =)

      I don't know, I might! =D


  2. Hey Mikayla!
    Good luck with NaNoWriMo! I would love to do it this year, but between editing my other story for the contest and school, I don't think I'll have time. But I hope you have an amazing time, and I can't wait to see what you come up with! I recommend making a Spotify account (free) and searching for fairy-tale playlists. You might find one you really like :)

    1. Maybe next year. I hope your editing goes well! Thanks, I will check that out!
