    NaNoWriMo Live Stream

    Post  AdamCollings on October 31st 2016, 6:05 am

    Something a bit different. I'm thinking that I might live-stream my NaNoWriMo efforts from time to time during November.

    I can't guarantee that it will be interesting, but who knows. Feel free to drop in and see how I'm going.

    I will broadcast my first session in the morning, which will be approx 3:30 PM American EST on Monday afternoon 31st October (which for me is early morning 1st November). I'll do a little intro and then start writing.

    Sounds like a really interesting idea! Do you think/process/brainstorm out loud? What do you suppose you'll do while streaming?

    You crazy fool! I might drop in to cheer you on a bit after I've got the kids to bed, as November won't be starting for a few hours for me (although I don't think I'll be writing until Tuesday evening) so I might be having one final night in front of the Tivo before the madness kicks in...

    Either way, good luck!

    This is my daughter's 3rd (?) year doing NaNoWriMo. I cheer her on every year!

    Do you have a Twitter account? If you tweet out that you're streaming I'll stop in and heckle you.

    That's an interesting question.
    Usually no. I'm an outliner so by the time I come to write the first draft of a story, I have it all pretty much mapped out. I find it extremely difficult to just pull it out of the air on demand.
    That said, the more I talk, the more interesting it will be. (who wants to watch somebody type). I think I did okay at the beginning of my first video, but as it went on, I didn't do much talking. Perhaps I need to talk through the scenes as I'm writing them. I already have the outline so I have something ready made to talk about.

    All of that said, I'm writing two novellas during November. The first is well outlined. The second isn't. I ran out of time. So there will be need for brainstorming.
    Since I met my daily word count goal before work on my first day, I may have time in the evenings to work on brainstorming and outlining the second novella. This might make for more interesting viewing, and perhaps even interaction.

    I shall experiment with this format a bit.

    Cool.
    I'm on twitter at https://twitter.com/adamcollings
    Looks like youTube is tweeting automatically for me, but it;s doing it when the archived stream goes online for later viewing, rather than when the stream starts. Might need to do a manual tweet at the beginning.

    Also, the videos will be collected in a playlist at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWkuSjvME7g&list=PLr-V5bQ8kcB_Gx6jddDaSrGbwXoPRuo_U

    I didn't watch the whole video (work was staring at me like those red squiggly lines were at you), but oddly enough I found it pleasant and strangely soothing to watch your words appear to the beating clicks and thumps of your keystrokes. Neat to see someone's story come into form.

    Have fun!

    Subbed. That will make things easier since you're going to be 12 hours ahead of me starting Sunday morning. BTW, at 1.5x you're a fast typist!
